I bought a box of Quaker High Fiber instant oatmeal hoping to help with the baby weight and to have a filling breakfast. They only had one flavor. Maple and Brown Sugar. After the first packet I couldn't do it. I had flashbacks to that horrible bitter tasting liquid supplement. Yuck. But of course I couldn't throw away perfectly good food so there it sat on the top shelf of the pantry until a few weekends ago I was thinking it would be nice to have some oatmeal cookies, and what an easy way to get rid of those oatmeal packets!
So I looked online for "instant oatmeal cookies" and I came across this recipe. Instant Oatmeal Packet Cookies
Holy oatmeal batman! They were a little flatish but so chewy and yummy. I could tolerate the maple flavor because it was mixed with cookie goodness. They were of course handed out to friends and family and we ate quite a few ourselves! Hubster liked them and was sad when I told him I probably won't make them again since I don't intend to buy that type of oatmeal. I'm sure the other box of oatmeal that I bought will end up in a cookie though. I just don't have the desire to eat oatmeal for breakfast. I'm a protein in the morning kind of gal!

What is your favorite kind of oatmeal cookie? Traditional? With nuts or raisins?
