Peaches ‘N Cream Oatmeal Cookies

During my first year of college, I generally avoided eating breakfast in the student union. They offered hash browns, and ham and egg sandwiches, basically as if you were going to Mcdonald’s every day. I constantly looked for easy things to prepare in my mini microwave in the dorm, and seemed to take a liking to instant oatmeal.

Although not the healthiest breakfast, it wasn’t terrible, and it seemed that I had taken a liking (more like loving) to the Peaches ‘N Cream flavor, enjoying it every morning. Recently, I was able to recreate that love in the form of a soft, delicious cookie. Hellllooo breakfast cookie!

Peaches ‘N Cream Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 C Butter

1 C White Sugar

1 Egg

1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract

1 1/2 C Flour

1/2 Tsp Salt

1/2 Tsp Baking Soda

1 Can or Jar of Peaches, 8 Ounces in syrup (you’ll add 1/4 C of the syrupand chopped peaches to the dough)

2 C Oats

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Cream the butter and the sugar. Add the egg, vanilla, and 1/4 C syrup, and continue beating. Add the flour, salt, and baking soda, and beat until a soft dough forms. Beat or stir in the oats. Cut up the peaches into small cubes, then beat them into the dough as well.

Drop by tablespoons full onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes, until the bottoms begin to brown.

      These have about 200 calories per cookie. You could probably swap out the egg for egg beaters, but you’re only saving about 40 calories for the entire recipe. For a cookie recipe, usually 1/2 cup of butter is standard…
