Today is National Oatmeal Cookie Day. I bet most of you had no idea. These oatmeal cookies are a staple around our house almost weekly as my son always wants to give the horses a treat after riding, and so we alternate between oatmeal cookies and gingersnaps. This week is oatmeal cookies.
The recipe for these oatmeal cookies follows below:
1 cup non hydrogenated margarine
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup coconut
Mix ingredients together in order. Drop by rounded teaspoon fulls on to cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for about 10 - 15 minutes.
Enjoy, and hope this inspires your own creativity...
