I am very honored (and thankful) to Lori for sending me this recipe. She actually sent me a lot of recipes and I intend to try them all! This recipe did NOT disappoint at all! Matter of fact I couldn’t keep my hands away from them-Gee, Thanks Lori! 🙂
These are really fun to make. This would be a good recipe to teach kids how to bake.
4 Cups Oatmeal
2 Cups Brown Sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. Almond Extract
The night before mix together the oatmeal, sugar and oil. Cover and let set out overnight. (This is where the ‘overnight’ comes in )
The next morning mix in the beaten eggs, salt and almond extract.
I lined a cookie sheet with parchment paper to bake them.
Bake in a 325 degree oven for 15 minutes.
Note: These little cookies spread. But they are supposed to. They get a little crunchy around the edges…but they have a great chewy middle. Please keep in mind that oven temps vary. Mine was done at 12 minutes.
After the cookies were done baking I let the rest on the parchment paper for a few minutes. I then peeled them off and placed them on wax paper to cool.
Thanks Again, Lori! Even my VERY VERY picky eater loved the cookies!
