Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies

Heya!

I love oatmeal, it’s good for pretty much everything. You can cook it on its own and have it for breakfast, you could add it into a smoothie and you can even bake cakes and cookies with it. With so many health benefits, i fail to understand how people dislike this yummy goodness…but i guess some things just aren’t for everyone.? Anyhow, in an attempt to make all oatmeal-haters (you know who you are?) change their minds, we came up with a super delicious blueberry oatmeal cookie recipe that will surely change how people look at oatmeal. Well, at least i hope it does! You can find the recipe below, try it out and let us know what you think.

6.  Spread some butter (or Blueband) on the baking tray to prevent the cookie dough from sticking then using 1 ½ tablespoon, heap the cookie dough onto the baking tray and try spreading it evenly. The cookies should be at least 1 inch apart.

7.  Bake for about 15 minutes until the cookie edges begin to turn golden brown.

8.  Once ready, carefully set aside the cookies and let them cool. Meanwhile, prepare your lemon glaze by mixing powdered sugar and lemon juice according to your desired consistency. (The use of the glaze is optional especially for those who would prefer to do without the acidic/tangy taste of the lemon).
