Super Fast & Easy Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies are so addicting, and they really couldn’t be easier. They’re toddler friendly (what cookie isn’t?!), and not sooo terrible for them either. My Cizzle loves them so much she insists on helping make them, including licking the mixing utensils.

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3 packets lower sugar instant oatmeal any flavor (maple brown sugar is our fav), or 1 1/2 cups quick oats plus an extra 1/4 cup sugar

Cream the butter and sugars in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the egg and beat well, then add in the vanilla.

Combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon in a small bowl and slowly incorporate into the creamed butter sugar mixture. Fold in the oats, and any other mix ins you like (cranberries and white chocolate chips are yummy!!). Then cover the dough and chill for about twenty to thirty minutes.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, then roll out 1 inch balls of the dough and place about two inches apart. Bake 8-10 minutes and cool completely before scarfing!

Note: if you want a little bit more of a healthy cookie for your little one, you can certainly substitute 1/2 cup of applesauce for 1/4 cup of the butter and 1/4 cup of the sugar. The babes will never know the difference!! Trust me, mine doesn’t!!!
