Almond Oatmeal Cookies 

My Favourite Cookies

Almond Oatmeal Cookies myfavouritepastime.comIt’s a lovely and sunny day, after the little snow storm we had last night. Yes, there was lots of shovelling this morning, but I always just want to say I had a great arm workout. How have you been? I planned to post at least four times a week but it’s still not working. Maybe in the near future I’ll achieve my blogging goals. The cookies tasted nice. They had the crunch of the almonds and chewy sweetness of cherries. I hope they will appeal to you, too! Wish you all a great week!

  1. Please note that oven temperatures are given as a guideline only. You may need to add or reduce the suggested temperature depending on your oven. I baked at 350ºF (175ºC), convection, for 15 minutes.
  2. For cup measures: spoon the flour into the cup, heaping it up over the top, then slide a knife across the top to level off the extra. Be careful not to shake or tap the cup to settle down the flour or you will have more than you need.

    1. Hey Ralph,
      Thanks so much. I think my tooth is way sweeter than yours. I hope you’re enjoying life as usual. I love your ever upbeat nature! Have a lovely week!

  1. Hi Liz, Your cookies look delicious! I wish I had one right now. I think I would really like the texture of these with the oatmeal and the almonds. You sure do have a good attitude about shoveling snow! Glad you are having a sunny day!

    1. Hi Shari,
      Thank you!
      The texture was nice, the taste appealing and the crunch super. What more can I say?
      I used to get so upset about snow but decided to change my attitude. Now I sleep soundly knowing I’ll be shovelling the next day…yeah!!!
      Have a pleasant week and thanks so much for stopping by.

  2. We had a thunderstorm with rain last night, no snow. It was actually 75F here yesterday! These cookies look delicious, I love oatmeal and almonds. I hear ha about the regular posting, my goal is twice a week and even that is hard most weeks!

    1. Hi Gretchen!
      Omg that’s so warm. I am not a fan of thunderstorms. I freak out! I am secretly hoping spring is on the way.
      I think I was over-ambitious. At first I thought I would post daily, then cut down to four days and now I wonder if I should just do it once a week and enjoy my life without stressing over not posting.
      Have a wonderful week!

  3. Hi Liz, still coming to you from Kauai….and…..it’s cloudy here today and windy….whine whine whine! Warm tho!!! Apparently at home on the Island it’s cold, grey and rainy! Im thinking of finding some nice Kauaian family who might want to adopt me. The cookies look heavenly. Oatmeal and almonds are such a delicious combination together. I’m an almond freak….they are healthy to eat by themselves and I often snack on them. I will definitely be trying this recipe when I get back home. Lots of humpback whales off this island the past several days. So exciting to see them blow and roll! Glad to hear your snow will be melting soon as I’m sure you are too! Cheers Liz!

    1. Ha ha! windy and warm sounds lovely, Sandy. We had lovely sunshine but it’s now dwindling out. I hope you find some family to adopt you, so you can find me one in the near future too!
      I often snack on blanched raw whole almonds. They taste so good….
      My son loves whales. I must take him on a Kauai holiday one of these fine days. Enjoy the rest of the week and the rest of your holiday and thanks so much for being my best blogging buddy!

      1. Homeward bound tomorrow, back to reality but I’m sort of looking forward to it. 2 months away and I’m missing my family and friends. We have cooked nearly all of our own meals here and I must say I’ve been very spoiled by others cooking meals for me! Will up you adopt me? I would love to be your recipe tester!!!! LOL. Be chatting with you from home next time. So glad I was still able to connect with you and your fabulous recipes and photos! Cheers Liz

        1. Hi Sandy,
          Sorry sometimes I get overwhelmed with everything around me, so took me time to reply to this message even though I read it earlier.
          I hope one day I shall have time to go away for two or three months. It must be a really good experience. Ha ha one day I’ll adopt you, when I’m done with all the high schoolers around me. I’m sure I’ll be pretty bored then, wondering what to do with myself.
          Thanks so much Sandy. I really admire your enthusiasm and commitment!
          Liz

        1. I must checkout the biscuits in your blog. This year I want to post at least 50 biscuit recipes. I probably have 35 to go. Thanks for letting me know. Best wishes!
          Liz

        2. I can’t find the search widget. Why don’t you just paste the link to the recipe right here then I can just link back. Thanks!
          Liz

  4. I lived in Colorado for two winters, so I know how much of a work out that is! I miss the beauty of snow! The cookies look great and I’m with ya on regular postings! Just keep ’em coming whenever!
    Meanwhile in Seattle, we had a windstorm last night, one thunder kind of storm, seriously. But nicer today. Have a good week!

    1. Oh thanks so much for all the reassuring and kind words. We have had a mild winter this year and I just hope this is the last of it. Next week temperatures will go up quite bit up to 55F. All the lovely mounds of snow will melt. I am so glad it’s nice and sunny today. Glad to hear it’s nice there as well. Have a lovely week and it was really nice chatting with you!
      Liz

    2. Seriously! I heard that ‘one’ thunder 😄
      I’m in Kirkland by the way 🙋🏻

      Anyways, any suggestions for a good egg substitute for this recipe, or cookies in general? I can’t eat eggs right now but pretty much every cookie recipe has them (a good cookie is my weakness)
