READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by MakeMineCadburys

I created this out of a desire to have a healthier cookie, but not have a huge batch of cookies sitting around staring at me or calling my name!

This recipe is essentially oats with a little bit of sugar, flour, and butter. Next time I will just cut another oatmeal cookie recipe in half.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. With a fork, whip together egg, butter, brown sugar, and vanilla. It will look lumpy. Don't worry about it! Just get the major lumps out. Stir in baking soda and flour. Stir in oats.
  2. Drop by scant tablespoonful onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Press to desired thickness. Bake at 350° for approximately 10 - 11 minutes. (Time depends on thickness).
  3. OPTIONAL ADD-IN IDEAS: 2 T mini chocolate chips; 2 T raisins; 2 T dried cranberries; 2 T finely chopped nuts.
