Yesterday is one of those days when I want to bake something, but don't want to wash too many bowls. Actually washing up is one of the things I dread the most, but since I can't escape from this 'package', can't complain too much too.
The following cookies suited my mood just fine. I've only used two bowls, one fork, a baking tray and viola! These were ready in about an hour.
These Cinnamon Oat Cookies are modified based on Gina's(KC) recipe for Oat Cookies. I have a pack of baby oats which I have a hard time finishing, so these helped to use up a bit.
Crunchy butterless cookies with a hint of cinnamon, lovely with a cuppa coffee. Oh by the way, oats are supposed to be good for health and the digestive system. Another reason to munch on these cookies.
