I’m not a big cookie fan. But, I got a craving the other day for sweet and salty simple oatmeal cookies. It was all I could think about.
I had to wait and wait until I could find flour. I had just a little bit of flour, and I wanted to save it for something important.
Where to get Flour?
The stores seem to be getting back on track after all the hoarding, so I think some things are easier to find now. I actually found Scott toilet paper today.
But a few weeks ago, my mom found me a 20 lb bag of flour at Sam’s Club. We got a dog food container to hold it, and I just scoop it into my canister when I run low.
How to make Easy Oatmeal Cookies
I always try to keep a big container of oats on hand because it’s such an easy breakfast. It’s also a yummy snack when you just want something filling. I made myself some oatmeal the other day and thought man, I’d like some cookies.
Honestly, this is a basic cookie recipe that you could add just about anything to. You can turn it into a chocolate chip cookie recipe or substitute some cocoa for part of the flour and have chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips.
I think next time, I might add some toffee bits with the oats just to see what happens.
As you’re making this recipe, you might think that this is too much oats for the batter. But, as they soften in the baking process, the cookies turn out amazing.
My family devoured these cookies, and I had to fight them just to get one to taste. But, they satisfied my craving. They’re sweet and a little salty and buttery, too. They would be perfect for the sandwich part of an ice cream sandwich. Next time I make them, I’m totally doing that.
