Ultimate Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

This is probably my most requested cookie recipe. Actually, it probably lands itself on the top 5 most requested recipe list. From family to friends every loves a good oatmeal cookie. Not too sweet, just enough oats and the perfect slightly crisp texture. Sounds pretty perfect to me.

This recipe was first created for a friend who just had a baby. I added brewers yeast to the dough to make her some trendy lactation cookies and made a yeast free batch for her significant other. Little did I know they would both be a hit and my friends would be requesting cookies in hand at every visit from then out. I guess thats a good thing 🙂

So weather you add the brewer’s yeast or keep it out, these oatmeal cookies are the perfect way to fill your favourite cookie jar.
