Everyone seems to have a box of instant oatmeal packets hiding in their pantry or kitchen, sadly forgotten. While they make a quick breakfast, a lot of people get tired of the same old flavors of everyday oatmeal. Rather than throwing away money and letting oatmeal packets become trashcan bound, I try to re-purpose them. Instant oatmeal packets aren’t just for breakfast, they also make wonderful, chewy oatmeal cookies unlike any other. This recipe is great because you can mix and match different combinations of oatmeal packet flavors together to create a different cookie every time. My favorites are the Maple & Brown Sugar mixed with Apples and Cinnamon, or Strawberries and Cream with Blueberries and Cream.
