Oatmeal, raisins, walnuts, a touch of brown sugar and cinnamon. Would you eat that for breakfast? I totally would. And if it came in cookie form, well all the better for less washing up!
I always seem to have an abundance of rolled oats sitting around the house. I have good intentions of having it for breakfast but somehow, the pre-packed, flavoured, Uncle Toby’s 90 second oats just flings itself into my shopping basket every week. So with a big tub of oatmeal feeling neglected and gazing longingly at me, what else can I do but turn them into big, fat, delicious chewy cookies?
ps. for the record, Panu the cookie (and cheesecake) connoisseur absolutely loved these, so they’re making it onto my regular baking list.
pps. these cookies probably aren’t actually considered to be a balanced breakfast. sorry.
