Would you like some oatmeal cookies? Well, you can’t have any of mine. But feel free to make your own.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 cup butter (or, if you have vegan margarine leftover from making vegan pumpkin cookies, you can use that….I did)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp salt
3 cups oats
1/4 cup pecans
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup secret ingredient (Heath toffee bits)
Once combined stir in oats. Then add your yummy ingredients (raisins, pecans and Heath Bits! Mmmm….heeaaathhhh biiiittsss)
Spoon small mounds of cookie batter onto your cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
I gave some to the neighbors (my brother and his girlfriend, Sarah) and I’m going to give some to my parents today. This recipe made 2 dozen cookies and that’s too many for just Jon and I. But the rest of you can’t have any, because I already gave away as many as I’m willing to part with. Make your own oatmeal cookies!
