7 Oatmeal Cookie Recipes

December 11, 2013

Oatmeal cookies are perfect for two reasons: 1) they are delicious, and 2) they are made of oatmeal, which means they are really, really good for us. (Right?) There is no such thing as a bad cookie, but oatmeal cookies are special: a little more unique than the ubiquitous chocolate chip, but not fancy or intimidating to make (we love you, macarons, but we're looking at you).

Like a big, cozy bowl of hot porridge with your fixins of choice, oatmeal cookies can be tailored to any taste -- whether you like a classic, chewy oatmeal cookie with lots of brown sugar, cinnamon, and raisins, or see them primarily as direct line to a chocolate fix. 

No matter how you take your oatmeal, here are 7 oatmeal cookie recipes that wiill fit the bill.
