This is one of those times.
They are thick, soft and chewy. They have texture and bite thanks to the finely ground oatmeal inside.
These cookies taste like cookie dough. Like great, chocolate chip cookie dough, only without the chocolate.
My puppy Coco wanted in on the cookie action too. How could anyone say no to those heartbreaking Labrador eyes?
I really like them (obviously), and I hope you like them too!

Preheat the oven to 180 C and line 2-3 trays with baking paper.
In a blender or food processor, grind up the oats to a fine powder. Set aside.
Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and both sugars until light and creamy. Add the egg and vanilla, mixing well.
