Big Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

Big Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

These are the perfect oatmeal cookies! Make them plain, with raisins, or why not chocolate?

My Dad’s been asking for Oatmeal Cookies for longer than I care to admit. And we had three, yes, three cartons of Old Fashioned Oats in the cupboard. And so here they are, the best Oatmeal Cookies, ever! And my Dad thinks so, too!! 🙂 It always tickles me pink to get a thumbs up from my Dad!

Old Fashioned Date Pinwheel Cookies - Grandma's Recipe

Date Pinwheels, Icebox

Date Pinwheels - they're crispy on the edges with a chewiness that's just incredible.

These Date Pinwheels were my Grandmother Irene’s recipe. My Mom’s Mom, and of all the cookies our family had at Christmas, these were my favorite. When Grandma thought I was old enough, she let me slice the cookie rolls into coins & I remember how hard I’d concentrate to try to get them perfect!

Healthier Energy Bars

When my son was a teenager and became interested in working out, he immediately “sparked” to the idea of “energy” bars! He’s not alone; energy bars are a huge industry, many full of heavily processed ingredients. A black mark in my book. That they’re expensive is a double damn. That so many present as healthy when they’re way over the top in calories? Well, that’s a triple damn! Why not just have a piece of cake and be done with it!!
