some (instant) oatmeal goodness

did you ever find tons of instant oatmeal in your cupboard and had no idea what to do with it?

did you google recipe for instant-oatmeal cookies, got excited and then realized you don't have half of the ingredients?

did you improvise?

I did, and somehow it worked out...

oatmeal cookies aren't rocket science after all.

but they sure are delicious and even a little healthy midnight snack for long nights of studying

1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar (or less if you don't have enough - like me)
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking powder ( I believe in baking powder and am very generous when I use it so just add as much as you think is good - according to what you believe while baking)
5 or6 packs of instant oatmeal (I had 2 forest fruit flavored and 3 maple syrup-brown sugar flavored packs)
1/2 cup raisins or cranberries or nuts (we had about 10 tiny cranberries left)
1/2 cup butter- melted ( I never know how to measure this so I just guessed - and half of it was PB because it was the closest thing we had - after I used all my butter stash and came up with two poor spoonfuls...peanut butter is a kind of butter after all. )

bake 35OF /175C
long enough

I hope this is all, I don't really remember what I used . but will definitely make them again!

enjoy! :)
