Foodie Rhi-flection: Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookies



Okay, admit it moms... baking isn't the most enjoyable way to spend your time when you've already got a ton of coupon clipping for grocery shopping, changing and washing bed linens for every bed in the house, and overseeing homework, practices, and scouting troops. Personally, I'd rather sit down with a glass of wine and read a book that isn't shelved with the children's books. Unfortunately, I'm also a fiend for cookies. They have a very short life span in my house. So what's a mom with no time and a hankering for something round and crumbly-like to do?

Enter Quaker Soft Baked Cookies. Admittedly, oatmeal cookies probably land under my Top 10 favorite kinds of cookies but if you've worked your butt off (literally) over that final 15 lbs. of baby weight it's not worth splurging on cookie without some kind of healthy point right? I've been making a point to slip in cookies with raisins or other dried fruit, nuts, or whole grains to make sure I'm both satisfied with a treat and getting some fiber too.





It's true, the company we've known for ages is FINALLY making Oatmeal Cookies!

I hadn't actually seen Quaker's Soft Baked Cookies until Influenster sent one my way with the Mom Voxbox. The Oatmeal Raisin is classic and tasty but boring in my honest opinion. Thank goodness there are other yummy ones like Chocolate & Almond and Cranberry & Yogurt too! (Yeah, I like to pretend I'm having a big ol' coffee house cookie, sometimes). ;)




And I suppose if I really had to I would share them with my kids but heck with that! They have enough cool kid foods I have to sneak lest I get in trouble for 'stealing' their snacks. :P Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookies are for moms! You hear that tween and tot. MINE!
