Tips For Making Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

  • Let the cookies cool completely before serving. They have so much more flavor once cooled.
  • Swap peanuts for other nuts such as cashews or hazelnuts if you prefer
  • Try adding a little lemon zest or cinnamon to switch things up
  • Store in a sealed container to keep them fresh for up to 1 week.
