Oatmeal Honey Cookies

These cookies might get away with the name Oatmeal Honey Breakfast Cookie – I am eating two as I write this. It’s very early Saturday morning and I am having my first cup of coffee.

It’s my favorite part of the week actually.  Sitting in my favorite chair, the house is quiet, the dog is in his favorite spot right near my feet, the sun is rising outside my window. The sky is honey colored and the trees are golden. There is frost on the lawn and mist is rising from the lake. Autumn at its finest. The day is full of possibilities.

If you like oatmeal, you will like these cookies and if you like honey, you will love them.

Here’s what you need:
1 ½ C sugar (I think you could get away with 1 C)
¾ C butter
2/3 C honey
3 egg whites
4 C oats
2 C all-purpose flour
1 t baking soda

Here’s what you do:
Mix the sugar and butter. Add the honey and egg whites. Add the oatmeal and mix well. Add remaining ingredients.

You can see I made some small cookies and some giant cookies. The small ones were 1 level tablespoonful baked for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees. The giant ones were ¼ cupful, pressed down a bit before baking, baked for about 15-17 minutes at 350 degrees.  They never got completely brown on the bottom and I did not over bake them – just left them a tiny bit soft in the middle. Excellent. Chewy. Sweet. Golden. 

One Year Ago: Eggplant and Wild Rice (one of my favorite ways to eat eggplant)

     Pumpkin Butterscotch Chip Bundt Cake (you might already know how much I like my Bundt cakes!!)


  1. Cookies for breakfast! I like the way you think (and must confess that I have, many a time, rationalized the same thing!). Have a great weekend!

  2. I love oatmeal and honey, so yes I believe I would love these cookies. They look very yummy!

  3. I never met an oatmeal cookie I didn't like :) Your recipe sound delicious!

  4. Hi Tracy, thank you for visiting and leaving a lovely comment on my blog. I'm so glad you like it please come back often.
    Your oatmean and honey cookies sound absolutely delicious. I've not made cookies for ages - I have a daughter who LOVES to bake so I have lost that job somewhat lol. I'll try and beat her to the kitchen some day.
    Thanks again for your comment and following.

  5. These look wonderful, such a great way to start the weekend :)

  6. I adore tiny cookies. They make me happy just to see them, not to mention eating them! These sound great.

    (I LOVE the colors of your leaves. We don't see anything like that here.)

  7. I can't choose which to stare at more wistfully- those cookies, or the photos of the pink sunlight. Just gorgeous.
