cookies are one of my favourite things to bake, BUT one of my least favourite things to photograph. which is why my blog is not flooded with all the delicious cookie recipes i whip up at home. however, i couldn't resist sharing these wintery maple oatmeal cookies. i created a muffin version of these last year which you can find here. my photo skills have oh, just slightly improved, eh. i like to believe both the maple oatmeal muffins & cookies can be eaten as a quick grab & go breakfast because they are made with oats, pure maple syrup + raw sugar. it is healthy(ish) & close enough to oatmeal, right?! oh how i love my canadian maple syrup. happy monday!
