Spinach oatmeal cookies

20 minutes - 5 pieces 1ov1of

Wanted to make green cookies, didn't know what i wanted in them, but i knew i wanted THAT colour. Spinach was an obvious choice, plus i had some left-over from yesterday.

I've been having a lot of baking failures, I needed something simple to make that didnt involve flour.

Flour is fussy, flour is mean.

Using oats for bulk is a great, and healthier alternative to flour (plus it's hard to fuck up.) Failing at food is the worse, i can never bring myself to throw it away. It feels like a waste to trash it, so I end up storing it in the back of the fridge. In refrigerators, unlike on school buses, the cool kids don't hang out in the back. After 3 days my anger subsides, and I toss it in the garbage and deny ever making it.

On a brighter note, THESE cookies were crazy successful! Super moist, tasty and GREEN.

Plus, these don't take a very long time to make. It makes 5 small cookies, it's easy and doesn't make a mess. I never bake huge batches of desserts, but if you want more you can double or triple the recipe easily.
