Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookies

Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal CookiesI’ve never understood people who don’t like oatmeal.  It has to be one of my most favoritest foods ever.  It’s so versatile–it can be sweet, it can be savory, it can be healthy and wholesome, or it can be sweet and decadent…ooh, I like that word–decadent…but I digress. My point is, if you don’t like oatmeal, you’re a nut.  And that’s putting it mildly.  Even if you don’t eat it by the bowlful, grind it into smoothies, or add it to your pancakes, you’ll still like these cookies.  I promise.  If you don’t, well, that’s just stupid.  Really.  And that’s all I can think of to say about that nonsense.

3/4 c Brown Sugar
3/4 c Maple Syrup
1 c Butter, softened
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 Eggs
1 c Flour
1 c Whole Wheat Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Cinnamon
3 1/2 c Oats

Preheat oven to 350.  Cream together the sugar, syrup, and butter.  Beat in the vanilla extract and eggs.  In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, and cinnamon.  Add these combined dry ingredients to the sugar mixture and beat ‘em till they’re well-incorporated.  Stir in those oats.

Drop the dough by spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet or two and bake 12-14 minutes.  Eat ‘em warm, with milk.  Yum.

Yield: About 4 dozen.  Maybe 3 dozen if you don’t count all those warm ones you’ll eat right out of the oven.
