  • Add the oats to the bowl and sprinkle the flour, baking powder, and salt over the top of the oats.
  • Stir well until all ingredients are combined.
  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Line a cookie sheet with foil.
  • Place small teaspoons of dough on the foil, leaving plenty of room, it will spread!
  • Bake the cookies for about 8-10 minutes, just as they begin to brown evenly.
  • Carefully remove from the oven and transfer the foil from the cookie sheet, let the cookies cool on the foil.
  • Once the cookies have cooled, the foil will peel off easily.
  • Cookies can be stored in an airtight container for 2-3 days.


  • If the cookies stick to the foil they were not cooked long enough.
