Time for some sweets! When I told the DIY guy I was making cookies… well, he was pretty thrilled. With just the two of us at home, I don’t tend to make many sweet goodies because I would probably over indulge! But he loves his sweets and I figured he could take some to work and get them away from me (well I did keep a few at home).
Who uses steel cut oats? This was a first for me and I was quite surprised how the oats looked – I am used to the Quaker Oat Man’s round container. The oats and recipe came from a person who I did a foodie pen pal exchange with a couple months ago and glad I finally got around to making them. I was really impressed with the texture and may even just cook some up to eat! Healthy too!
Grab a bit of milk and you are good to go…
