Raise your hand if you are a big fan of oatmeal cookies? They are one of my husbands top favorite cookies. He loves them so much. I actually like to play around with making new additions to old classics.
These salty-sweet oatmeal cookies are studded with chunks of raisins and pretzels before baking which gives them an addictive flavor. These cookies are part dessert, but mainly a snack (that is what I call them). They are more cookie-like, but sort of cracker-like too from the crispy crunch from the added pretzels.
I have to mention that these cookies are perfectly paired with a cup of tea or coffee. This is what makes them super addicting. Serve them as a simple dessert or grab them as an on-the-go snack or HECK you can make them as an on the go breakfast item. They are flexible little numbers and packet with whole grain rolled oats.
It may feel almost naughty to eat cookies for breakfast? But no need to feel that way. You can customize these cookies by adding in dried fruit or nuts. The variations are endless
