Healthy-ish Irish Oatmeal Cookies

Recipe by  

"On the back of a McCann's® Quick Cooking Irish Oatmeal box I noticed a recipe for 'Irish Oatmeal Cookies.' I more or less followed the recipe substituting things here and there, and the results were über-delicious. Perfect for a coffee or tea break snack or breakfast. I would have added some cinnamon if my hubby didn't dislike that flavor so much. Please try it! Here's what I did."

These were really good-I used my Irish quick oats that I adore, and instead of golden raisins used regular because i was out. I also substituted walnuts for the almonds. They were really good-I made them small, and they went fast!

Used ingredients as directed and the cookies were very dry. I think it needed a better bonding agent such as another egg; however the dough gave me great hope!

I was looking for a new use for my McCann's Irish oatmeal and tried this recipe. It turned out really great - so tasty and surprisingly filling! I had to make some tweaks, which is not something I usually do (I'm a nervous cooker). I was out of eggs so per the interwebs I used 1 Tbl Cornstarch and 2 Tbls water to equal 1 egg. I also realized I did not have the quick cooking McCann's, so I did a mixture of partially cooked oats and some instant regular oatmeal that I had on hand. I also decided to try the cinnamon mentioned in the description by sprinkling it on top before they went in the oven. It smelled SO GOOD when the cooked. They were a big crumbly in the end - but that actually gave them a unique charm and the flavor and texture were both just perfect. Thanks so much! These were our Christmas morning breakfast!
