oatmeal cookie dough… yum.

Because I mentioned it in this post a few days ago, I thought I should share the recipe for my delicious oatmeal cookie dough ‘secret‘ treat. You’re welcome.

I don’t make this often but I’d like to. And being the selfish girl that I am, I have only ever made this when I’m home alone… because I wouldn’t want to share. I know… really mean. I may or may not have ever eaten this for breakfast. What? It’s oatmeal! I’ve even made it and eaten some, then hid the rest behind veggies in the fridge and snuck bites when no one was around. I know… I know…

My next experiment will be to make this, roll it into balls, chill it, dip in melted chocolate, chill again… and eat yummy chocolate covered cookie dough balls. I’m pretty sure I won’t be getting away with not sharing that…

Oatmeal Cookie Dough
For eating… not for cookies… seriously, don’t try to bake it… it won’t work!
(Serves four normal people… or one enthusiast. I usually aim for two servings, but sometimes I fail. So bad.)

¼ cup butter, softened
¼ cup white sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup white flour
¾ cup of rolled oats
cinnamon, if desired

chocolate chips, raisins, etc. can be added but I like it ‘pure

1. Because raw flour can contain bacteria, ‘pasteurize’ it first: microwave for about 1 minute 15 seconds on high, stirring every 15-20 seconds. (I confess, I have proceeded without doing this and I’ve never gotten sick… but it’s best to be safe.)
2. Cream butter and sugars together. (I do all of the mixing with a fork.)
3. Add milk and vanilla to creamed mixture; combine well.
4. Add flour in two parts; combine until smooth.
5. Add oats in three parts; mix until well integrated.


I think I like it even better after it’s been chilled… but I am not usually that patient.

I would love to give credit to the original source of this recipe but I can’t find it… and I didn’t make a note of it. I also don’t have a picture. I have never even thought to snap a photo before it’s gone… sorry!

Let me know your thoughts if you try this. I know most people like chocolate chip cookie dough, and that’s good, too, but this is, in my opinion, far superior.
