I love oatmeal! Oats are a rich source of fiber and also contain calcium and potassium which can help reduce blood pressure. However, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies should not be considered a “health food” but they offer a much better nutritional profile than a chocolate chip cookie or piece of banana cream pie.

As with everything, try to limit your serving size and be conscious of the sugar content. I make a big batch, keep out a few cookies and freeze the rest. They are easy to defrost and make a great accompaniment for a cup of afternoon tea (since the origin of the Oatmeal cookie dates back to Great Britain), or to satisfy a late night sweet tooth!
