Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! I had a relaxing and fun weekend with the family, including a fun-filled trip to Six Flags, yesterday…
Not everyone likes roller coasters, but I personally really enjoy them. The trick for me is just to keep my eyes closed the entire time, because I tend to feel less than perfect dangling more than a hundred feet in the air.
By the way, sorry for the MIA status! I’ve been having computer issues and it’s taking awhile to fix. Thanks for bearing with me!
Anyway, let’s start the week off right with some oatmeal cookies! Oh, yeah and did I mention that they are the BEST oatmeal cookies?
As you’re thinking about getting the kids ready to go back to school, I would highly recommend sending them off with these soft, chewy oatmeal cookies.
Just don’t expect them to save any for you 😉 These cookies are VERY kid-friendly! I caught my little sister with a guilty smile on her face and a few of these cookies is hidden behind her back
I have to tell ‘ya–I have a slight obsession with oatmeal and I’m not ashamed to admit it.
It’s just so texture-y in baked goods and has an amazing nutty flavor.
I’m definitely a texture kind of gal. I love anything jam-packed with texture-y extras such as nuts, chocolate chips, and oats to name a few!
These oatmeal cookies are a texture-lover’s dream. They’re jam-packed with all kind of goodies:
Golden raisins + Applesauce + Oats = ♥♥♥
They are also the chewiest oatmeal cookie I have ever had in my life thanks to the addition of unsweetened applesauce AND golden raisins, which are softer than regular raisins. Thus creating the chewiest oatmeal cookie ever.
It’s definitely been too long since my last cookie recipe. These soft, chewy cookies fixed that cookie craving real quick 😉
Tender, buttery, chewy, and packed with soft golden raisins, smooth applesauce, and nutty oats. I’ll take five, please 😀
These cookies are also unbelievably easy– Simple cookie ingredients and done in less than 20 minutes and ready to accompany a cold glass of milk.
Hey, cookies and milk ‘ain’t just for the kids! I personally LOVE a warm, chewy cookie with a tall glass of cold milk. Yum, yum, yum.
These cookies call for simple oatmeal cookie ingredients: Quick-cooking oats to keep them chewy. Applesauce for moistness. Cinnamon for spice. Golden raisins for softness. And your other regular cookie ingredients such as flour, eggs, ect..
Basically all you’re going to do is dump and stir. I told you it was simple. No fancy techniques here just to get the best oatmeal cookie .
Shape the dough into 1-inch balls and slightly flatten with the bottom of a glass.
You’re only going to bake the cookies 11 minutes. The cookies will be very soft. Don’t worry– you’re going let them sit on the baking sheet 5 minutes to firm up before removing to a wire cooling rack.
It’s super tempting to grab a cookie off the baking sheet the second they come out of the oven, but trust me on this– these cookies will be perfect if you let them firm up a bit before attacking them 😉
Perfection is the keyword. Chewy and soft. Nutty and buttery. AND low-fat!! Yum…Heaven in one bite.
