Rolled Oat Cookies Recipe

I like to keep some of this dough in the freezer at all times since it's so handy to slice, bake and serve at a moment's notice. These wholesome cookies are super with a cup of coffee - in fact, we occasionally grab a few for breakfast when we're in a hurry. -Kathi Peters, Chilliwack, British Columbia

"Awesome not too sweet cookie, adding mini chocolate chips to this for a nice variation."
