You know we’re all about quick healthy meals here.
But sometimes it’s nice to make a quick treat bake too and to share it with your friends. Which is precisely what I did here with these oat cookies.
That’s the 20% part of the 80/20 rule. The treat part.
I hadn’t baked anything for my colleagues at work for a while, I enjoy doing that and sharing the good food love so that’s what I did with these lemon oat cookies.
The first batch of these healthy oat biscuits was an instant hit, so I made another one to check and that went down equally well too.
So now these oat cookies are here for you to try!
The idea for these oats biscuits came to me from the base of the lemon crunch cheesecake recipe.
You folks seem to really love that one as it’s been one of my most popular recipes lately.
So thank you!
It’s nice to enjoy a piece of that cheesecake occasionally isn’t it, in all it’s lemony glory?
Sometimes though you just want a little treat giving you exactly that same flavour and that’s what these lemon crunch cookies give you!
