OATMEAL IN A COOKIE

Getting back to the grind can mean less time in the morning to create your favorite dish. Though overnight oats (Oh Those Overnight Oats) are a great option, these cookies can provide a sweet, quick, and nutritious breakfast or snack, providing dietary fiber, along with a range of cholesterol-lowering properties, in a small and mighty package. Enjoy a couple with a half-cup of nonfat Greek yogurt, to make sure you get enough protein for breakfast or enjoy 1–2 as a snack or dessert. These cookies are moist and soft, not crispy. They can be stored at room temperature in a sealed container for 1 week, or frozen for 2–3 months.
