National Oatmeal Cookie Day

Posted Apr 30 2010 5:11am

It’s Cookie Friday , but if you really need an excuse to eat some cookies, it’s also National Oatmeal Cookie Day!! :mrgreen:

Earlier this week, Christina gave me the heads-up about National Oatmeal Cookie Day, so, of course, I had to do something for the big day. Obviously, oatmeal cookies are tasty, but they’re also fairly good for you with healthy carbs and fiber from the oats. Isn’t that a good reason to eat them!? ;-)

Here are a few of my favorite oatmeal cookie recipes:

Obviously, Cookie Friday + National Oatmeal Cookie Day is a reason to celebrate, so I got started first thing this morning.

On Twitter the other day, Julie gave me a delicious idea for breakfast: Oatmeal M&M Cookies. Oh, yes! :-D

Unfortunately, my baking experiment didn’t turn out very well. The cookies tasted fine, but they were flimsy and flat. I wanted to make a healthy-ish cookie using pinto beans, but my plan bombed. :-?

I was hungry when I woke up, so I rushed to make breakfast. I threw a whole bunch of ingredients together and didn’t really think about the outcome, so sadly, my cookies weren’t anything special.

Even still, I ate a few cookies, plus a banana and a glass of iced coffee for breakfast.

Here’s some delicious inspiration for your day! :mrgreen:

What is the weirdest thing you’ve eaten for breakfast in the name of saving time?
