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.
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 1/4 cup (scant) packed light-brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp whisked egg
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup quick oats
- 1/8 tsp baking soda
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
