One Big Oatmeal Cookie! Soft and chewy and perfect for when those cravings strike.

Since I’ve already posted two recipes for a single cookie (one chocolate chip cookie and one 3-ingredient peanut butter cookie) I decided why not keep a good thing going and share a recipe for one single oatmeal cookie! We’ve got to try them all in single batch form, right?

These cookies are moist and chewy and they are simply one of the best oatmeal cookies I’ve ever made or had (from bakeries included). I was so surprised that such a simple recipe could yield such fantastic results! This is definitely a recipe I’m going to hang on to for the days when I get a cookie craving but don’t want to take the time to make a full batch + have a huge mess in my kitchen.

I was intending on adding vanilla extract to this but forgot the second time around and I didn’t really notice, it just left room for the cinnamon to shine. So if you want to, add it, if you don’t, I don’t think it’s needed and it keeps the ingredient list down for this simple recipe.
