So a while back the hubby and I were out running errands and the baby fell asleep in his car seat.  I don't know about you guys but if my little guy falls asleep I usually go out of my way to let him nap, even if it means that we have to get a little creative while out and about.  Usually we just end up taking turns running into stores and doing whatever it is that we need to do.  

So when our little guy fell asleep I didn't think twice about having my husband run into Whole Foods to get a few things that we needed.  It wasn't until he came out of the store and started loading the paper bags into the car that I realized that maybe I should have taken this turn shopping.  

Folks, he came out with 6 boxes of Earths Best Organic Yummy Tummy Instant Oatmeal?!?  It was all for the baby he said.  Let's do the math shall we...  6 boxes x 10 pouches per box = 60 servings of oatmeal.  I'm sitting there thinking the baby is never gonna eat all of that oatmeal.  

Yeah, turns out he doesn't even like big boy oatmeal.... lol!  

Everyday I go into my pantry and see these boxes and wonder what the heck I'm going to do with them and yesterday it clicked.  I decided to make Instant Oatmeal Cookies.  

Glad I did, because they turned out pretty delicious if I do say so myself!

Easy Instant Oatmeal Cookies
1 egg 
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup honey
1 cup Oat Flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
1 1/2 cups apple & cinnamon instant oatmeal (about 2 - 1.51 oz packages)

In a small bowl beat egg, melted butter and honey together.  

In a larger mixing bowl stir oat flour, baking soda, sea salt, apple pie spice and instant oatmeal making sure there are no lumps in mix.  

Add liquid mixture to your dry ingredients and mix well.  

Let your mix sit in the bowl for about 5 minutes on the counter to reach the desired consistency.  When the mix thickens up and stays on your spoon when scooping out you know it's ready! 

Preheat your oven to 325°.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto parchment paper or lightly greased cookies sheet.  

Bake at 325° for 12-15 minutes or until edges start to brown.  

Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet for 2-4 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack or cookies will fall apart.  

Shauna's Tips
I added raisins to a couple of the cookies and they were gone before I could even take a picture of them :)  My family said they were good both ways.  Just depends on what kind of cookie you want.  Next time I might even add a few chocolate chips to the mixture and see how they turn out!
