I found this recipe on Kath Eats and I am so glad I did. This is now one of my favorite breakfasts, It is very filling and refreshing. The carrots and coconut give this oatmeal a nice added texture. Her recipe includes nuts however I am not a big fan of nuts on food:) I like eating them by themselves so I omitted the nuts, so for all you nut lovers out there, you could add 1 Tbsp of toasted chopped pecans.

I got this recipe through Kellogg’s and these are really good cookies. I got 24 cookies out of this recipe. They are crisp around the edges and chewy in the middle, I brought these cookies to a get together and got really good reviews, my friend says she doesn’t like cookies with oatmeal in them but she really liked these cookies and everyone said these are a great alternative to oatmeal raisin. I will make these again.
