Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

I was perusing through pinterest the other day when I stumbled across this 2 ingredient cookie recipe and I just had to whip up a batch (with my own modifications of course) to see if they were as good as they looked…they were. They are super easy to make and they only require a few ingredients (depending on how much you want to jazz them up). I didn’t really measure the ingredients so I’m just going to list the apporximations I used but basically you want the dough to be liquid but hard enough to hold it’s shape. These are great as a snack or for breakfast with a glass of milk and a 1.2 cup of berries (to make a complete meal).

You can also cater this recipe to your preferences/dietary needs by using gluten free quick oats to make it gluten free or leave out the chocolate chips (or sub carob chips) to make it vegan.
