Oatmeal Cookies
Oatmeal cookies...a rather basic cookie that my mom has been making for decades. Not only did I love them growing up, but my kids too. I would say the only turn-off for me were always the raisins, which is why I leave them out. Instead, I substitute them with cacao nibs. A very delicious alternative. No, don't worry, it doesn't make them like a chocolate chip cookie, because there's so much more to the oatmeal cookie, than the chocolate chip. With the cacao nibs, it resolves into becoming a cookie not dominated by chocolate sweetness, but rather, nuts, oats, and a hint of chocolate. Delicious either way, and have your cold glass of milk on hand to chase them down. Enjoy.
