  1. Awesome recipe Cynthia. I love me some oatmeal raisin cookies and these sound amazing. I also love that they are vegetarian (I guess you could classify them as vegan but I know some vegans don’t eat honey) and it’s a super versatile recipe. I’m gonna have to try these soon.

    1. I would love to hear back to find out what you think after you try this recipe.  These can easily be converted to vegan by replacing the honey with maple syrup or molasses.  I think I’m going to give that a try the next time I make them!

  2. Ummmm yummy!!! These look so dang good.  Gotta love a good oatmeal raising cookie, and for breakfast nonetheless!! It’s like having dessert in the morning. I love your freezer tip, by the way. That would come in so handy.  I bet they stay pretty fresh if you freeze them quick enough. Thanks for the great recipe. I cant wait to try them!
