Mmm Museli Cookies

There is something unmistakably delicious about an oatmeal cookie. It is a classic, after all. The sugar and cinnamon with vanilla and oatmeal, all together in one tasty bite? Yes, please.

Nature Valley recently came out with a line of toasted oats muesli, and I thought it would be fun to try making an oatmeal cookie recipe with their muesli instead. They are definitely different, but still very delicious. I used organic sugars with my muesli, so this cookie can feel good to eat any time of day. Go check it out here for a lil’ discount, get in the kitchen, try these yourself!

Using a small ice-cream scoop or a tablespoon, drop 2-inch mounds of dough onto sheet pans lined with parchment paper. Flatten slightly with a damp hand. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes, until lightly browned. Transfer the cookies to a baking rack and cool completely.
