Stop whatever you’re doing and go make this single serving healthy oatmeal cookie recipe!
Something that I am totally obsessed with is a good choc chip cookie! It has to be one of my favourite all time best sweet treats. There is just something so comforting and warming about an oatmeal cookie that gets me every single time! This recipe is perfect for if you want a healthy oatmeal cookie NOW, I mean like RIGHT NOW and don’t want to get carried away with making a commitment with an entire batch.
Single Serving Oatmeal Cookie
The inspiration for this recipe all started one afternoon when I just had a craving for a delicious cookie. I was far too lazy to commit to a whole batch ( and didn’t trust my self restraint either). I wanted a cookie that would be ready in a maximum of 5 minutes ( prep and bake time), so I got my creative baking hat on and started to experiment. This was the perfect single serving healthy dessert that turned out to be just what my sweet-tooth ordered
Healthy Oatmeal Cookie
Lately, I have also been loving making this cookie as a delicious breakfast recipe! Because it is made with oatmeal, it is a high fiber option for anyone looking for a breakfast cookie type recipe! I have always been a sweet tooth breakfast girl, and this recipe honestly just hits the spot in so many different ways! As I have said before, Mik doesn’t like eating oatmeal as is- but he will happily enjoy these cookies!
Easy Oatmeal Cookie Recipe
So, I have this one friend. We have been friends for years now, but bless her soul she hates baking. Every time she sets foot in the kitchen, she ends up giving up and heading to the shops to buy a store bought version of the treat she was craving. This recipe is so full proof, that I managed to convince her to give it a try! At first she was a little intimidated (based n her past experience) but when she saw how easy the steps were, she simply couldn’t not give it a try! She honestly couldn’t believe that she had done it. She texted me saying she hardly made any mess in her kitchen, and somehow was able to make this perfectly delicious and soft healthy oatmeal cookie in under 5 minutes.
Now let me tell you, if she can do it we all can ( if you’re reading this Sarah, know that I still love you!). Would highly recommend if you’re looking for a no mess, drop dead easy cookie recipe that gives you an intense cookie orgasm.
This recipe has two options. You can make it in the microwave, or in an oven. Both yield a delicious result. The microwave may be more convenient ( its quicker). Both work equally as well and the only main difference is the time!
