This is a great way to use up those instant oatmeal packets you may have stashed away in your cupboard! These cookies are crispy on the outside, super chewy on the inside, and have a delicious apple cinnamon flavour. You can also use this recipe as a base to experiment with other flavours of instant oatmeal - the possibilities are endless!
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 Tbsp. milk
6 apple cinnamon flavoured instant oatmeal packets
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Stir in the instant oatmeal packets.
In a separate bowl cream together the white sugar, brown sugar, and butter/margarine with an electric mixer. Add in the egg and milk. Gradually mix in the dry ingredients until combined.
Roll the dough into balls and place onto the prepared cookie sheets. Moisten your hands with water and gently press down on the balls of dough to slightly flatten them.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly browned. Allow to cool on cookie sheets for 2-3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
