Oat Cookies

Here I am only four days into the New Year and I’m baking cookies. Somehow, these little moreish beauties found themselves being put in the oven. How did that happen? I’m cooking recipes from the three Eat Well For Less books this month as a basis for my blog. This recipe from the first Eat…

Friday 22nd December 2017.
