We are back on the cookie bandwagon and these oats cookies have a good dose of cinnamon and cashews and raisins and offer a guilt free option to those who few guilty about eating cookies. In my opinion it does not make sense to feel guilt or any negative emotion when you eat. Enjoy what you eat and have fun.

Why I like these cookies?

The oats cookies have a nice chewy texture with a lovely bite from the cashews. These oats cookies do not need any chilling time and is a quick fix for an evening snack or to fill the quite dreadful snack box for school.

  3. I so agree on that point Sowmya. When we go all the way to bake, why feel guilty about it. Unless one has some dietary restrictions, one shouldn’t compromise…these cookies look very good.
