Spicy Oatmeal Cookies

March 21, 2013

Back to School

I believe that you never stop learning and you are never to old to educate yourself.  During my recovery period I decided to keep my brain active when I wasn’t resting completely.  It allowed me to direct my focus away from negativity and I really enjoyed myself.  I made these cookies to celebrate my love for education.  I never gave my second home economics a cookie because they were awful and she was a b**ch, but this recipe I give to you.  My supporters, my loved ones and people who love to learn.

This recipe was adapted from Cooking Light (December, 2000).
