It’s National Oatmeal Cookie Day! You now have every reason to indulge in the beloved treat…though who needs an excuse to eat oatmeal cookies?
I for one didn’t think a warm oatmeal cookie could get any better, that is, until I learned it could actually be considered good for you. It may not be a health food per se, but oats are quite the superfood. Rich in fiber, oats can help lower cholesterol, prevent heart disease, and keep you full enough that you won’t eat the whole batch of cookies (hopefully).
So get your sweet fix and your daily fiber by making one of these delicious oatmeal cookie recipes. The Chocolate Chunk and Walnut Oatmeal Cookie has been dubbed America’s Healthiest Cookie because it includes three different superfoods… now that’s a guilt-free treat!
