Oatmeal is a healthy cereal because of it’s high fiber content. It purges away the toxins and fats in our system. Some people don’t like to eat oatmeal because on how it is cooked. The usual method is making it as a porridge but if you will make it into cookies, it’s a different story. I love oatmeal cookies rather than a porridge oatmeal. This recipe is a basic oatmeal cookie recipe with three variations: raisin and chopped nuts oatmeal cookies, chocolate-covered raisins and chopped nuts oatmeal cookies, chocolate chips and chopped nuts oatmeal cookies. Try them out then see if you can create your own combination.
