Panic baking: Oatmeal Packet Cookies

Maybe my body/mind is going in to panic mode about the upcoming Whole30 Diet challenge, but I really wanted some junk food. I really wanted cookies to be exact. I didn’t have chocolate chips so I figured oatmeal cookies would be second best, but I didn’t have enough oats; I did, however, find a box of blueberry oatmeal and figured that would probably work. You can make cookies with any oatmeal packet. To alter the original oatmeal cookie recipe I just subbed oatmeal packet for the white sugar and oats called for in the recipe.

Recipe after the jump!

Oatmeal Packet Cookies
Makes 12-20 cookies (obviously varies by size and the amount of dough you eat before hand)

Spoon onto cookie sheet and cook 8-12 minutes or until they begin to brown and are firm to touch

  1. Sounds awesome and I love the fact you factor in eating dough before cooking them. You are a realist… no one goes through the cooking process without eating at least one cookies worth of mixture!
