Oatmeal Cookies

This morning I made some steel cut oats for our breakfast and doubled the batch.  Yummy breakfast and I had enough leftover to make some oatmeal cookies. (big smile here)

Oatmeal Cookies with leftover oatmeal
1 cup butter, cream with
1 cup brown sugar, and
1/2 cup white sugar
when well creamed add
4 eggs, one at a time mix well until light and fluffy
Now add:
2 teaspoons of baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2 cups leftover oatmeal or steel cut oats from breakfast
4 cups flour (2 3/4 cup wheat berries grinds to just the right amount of flour)

I use a cookie scoop or you can use a tablespoon to drop onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.

add ins of your choice - I added raisins and pecans
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes

These are a soft cookie, very tasty and really with the whole grain oats and if you grind your own whole wheat flour a good source of fiber.  Makes 6 dozen

If you only have one cup of leftover oatmeal cut the recipe in half.
