Easy Oatmeal Cookie Recipe
Looking for an easy to make oatmeal cookie recipe? This recipe is so easy that your child will be able to make these cookies. I make them every year around the holidays and my family loves them!
These cookies take less than 30 minutes to make and no oven is required so they are the perfect cookies to make when looking from something sweet in the hot summertime. Simply mix everything together and drop by teaspoon onto cookie sheet and let cool.
These cookies are very sweet but can be made with Splenda if you prefer cookies that are not that swee. Just use less quick oats when you use Splenda. I have made these cookies with Splenda and my family couldn't tell the different.
Also, this is the perfect recipe to play around with, adding whatever you like. I have added butterscotch chips and pecans to the recipe and they turned out perfect. Give them a try and let me know what you think.
