Oat Milk and oat cookies

Oat Milk is so good for you and can be so expensive in the stores. Our Kroger just recently discontinued Hemp milk, Eric's favorite. We figure this is next. I prefer adding some vanilla to mine. Eric likes it plain.

When you make it you leave it out over night after you refrigerate the milk and stir before pouring each time

To make it sweetened I took 1/4 cup sugar and just enough water to make it sort of liquid and microwaved it for 30 seconds then poured it in the oat milk

For the vanilla I put in two teaspoons for the recipe made above
