These cookies are about as healthy as a cookie can be. Loaded with good things like oats, dried fruit and chopped nuts, they make a delicious and wholesome holiday cookie gift.

Why Try? Easy to make, these crunchy yet chewy Oatmeal Almond cookies will disappear fast.

Usually you have the choice of old fashioned rolled oats and the quick cooking oats. You can use either one here but the old fashioned rolled oats will bring a thicker texture. You can ice these or dip half the Oatmeal Almond Cookies in chocolate for a more elegant look.
