Not that you need it, but you now have my permission to eat cookies for breakfast.

Specifically, these cookies filled with old-fashioned oats, chunks of apple, walnuts and a sweet blend of cinnamon and nutmeg.

I bake in a dress and slippers, whatcha gonna do about it?

Just as comforting as a warm bowl of oatmeal in cookie form, making them perfect for breakfast or with an afternoon cup of tea (apple candle pictured above encouraged but not required ;))

These cookies couldn’t be easier to make. They took no time at all and filled my kitchen with such a wonderful autumnal smell. My dog helped me out by eating some of the apple peel. Baking is a family affair.
