~Late Night Baking with the Owl~

Morning all! If you’re oatmeal consumers then I’ve got a really good recipe for you 🙂 It’s simple, easy, took hardly any time to prepare and the best part is you can use any flavor of oatmeal you like! The downside(if there has to be one) you’ll have addictive cookies that are so hard to stop after just one…ok three…FINE six. Are these low carb? Pssh, nope not in the least. But then I didn’t make them for me so just file this recipe under “FOR KIDS” in your recipe binder 🙂 Plus this is a kid friendly recipe!

Apple and Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 1/2 Tblsp milk

1 egg

6 packets apple and cinnamon instant oatmeal

1 cup flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, prep baking pans with parchment paper or release foil. Mix all ingredients except oatmeal and flour.(I used a hand mixer to make sure the butter and egg was well blended with the sugars and leavening. With a silicon spatula or spoonula fold in the flour and instant oatmeal completely.

Using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, or a 1 tablespoon measuring spoon, scoop and form into balls. Flatten slightly and bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on pans for a couple of minutes as the next batch bakes, move to a cooling rack before storing.

This recipe traditionally makes 2 dozen cookies, but I was able to get closer to three out of it.

These are chewy with a slight crunch to them. They’re great with milk, tea and coffee. Great for snacks, adding to school lunches, or for an after dinner treat with vanilla ice. You could also crumble these up and add them to your yogurt with fresh fruit. Versatile cookies with even more possibilities 🙂

And as G–Man says, “These are infinity thumbs up!”

Happy Eating!
