My mom is the most excellent cookie-baker I know. She has a knack for making soft, moist, chewy cookies that don't harden up after they're cooled. I've used several of her recipes but I still can't get it right! She has a delicious recipe for Zucchini Oatmeal Cookies for us today.
Why I Use Oats In My Cookie Recipes
Have you noticed I use oats quite often in my cookie recipes? It is all about the calories! 1 Cup of flour= 455 calories while 1 cup of rolled oats= 300 calories. Also, oats are better for us!
Do you need a cookie recipe for all those zucchinis the neighbors bring you? Here is a good one!
Zucchini Oatmeal Cookies

3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups oats
stir in: 1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp soda

Bake on greased cookie sheet at 350º for 10 minutes.
Thanks for stopping by the Homemaking Party. I'm excited to see what you've got to share!
