Oatmeal Cookies

These are delicious and easy to follow oatmeal cookies. Original cookie recipe has all purpose flour and white sugar in it. I replaced it with half of all purpose flour, half of oats flour and brown  sugar. You can make these cookies in variation by adding different nuts, protein powder etc. Also can use different flours to make it multi grain oatmeal cookies. Enjoy :-)
