I love oatmeal cookies , unfortunately the oatmeal cookies usually are really not macro friendly . So here’s my version of chewy oatmeal cookies that we can all feel good about , after all oats are good for our health !
In this recipe , which is super easy , no mixer required . Just use the wooden spoon , it’ll look a bit dry at first but don’t rush to add liquid to make it set , just keep mixing with the spoon until it’s pretty much mixed .
Also , you can always replace the brown sugar with coconut sugar or honey or agave , whatever you like . As far as the dried fruit , this one I used leftover dried cherries I have and I added little bit of raisins . I’ve done this with dried cranberries as well . They all turn out pretty yummy .
This recipe yields about 18 cookies , weigh about 25 grams each .
