Something about the texture of oatmeal just doesn’t sit well with my little Easton. So, when I saw a recipe for oatmeal cookies, I knew that I had to try it.  I made the recipe two ways: I used plain quick oats in one version and then I had two packages of low sugar strawberries and cream oatmeal in the other version for Easton.  The cookies tasted just like oatmeal, but Easton ate them like he was eating a cookie!  The oatmeal cookies were really easy to put in a plastic container and take in the car with us for a quick breakfast on the go.  I added a little sweetener and cinnamon to the plain oats cookies, but you could experiment by adding in raisins, vanilla, almonds, or pecans. Enjoy!
