This is a recipe my mom used to make, and since they are positively addictive, I made sure I got the recipe. These are one of my daughter's favorites as well. I bet you can't eat just one, lol!!

How to Make Oatmeal Sticks


  • 1Heat milk to scalding, add oatmeal and allow to cool.
  • 2Sift dry ingredients together. Cut butter or margarine (I prefer butter for its taste) into dry ingredient mixture until well incorporated (pea sized butter pieces).
  • 3Using your hands, form it into a ball. Depending on your flour, you may need to add more flour just to keep it from being too sticky. Turn it out onto a floured board and knead just until smooth. No excess kneading is necessary - just so it holds together.
  • 4Pull off a small sized ball - enough to make a stick about a foot long when rolled to 1/2 inch diameter size. You may need to grease your hands for this: Roll the dough between your two hands into a rope of about 1/2 inch diameter and place it onto a greased cookie sheet. Continue placing the ropes out onto the cookie sheet, about an inch or so apart (they rise a bit). Bake at 400 degrees fahrenheit until they just turn a bit brown (about 10 to 15 minutes?) This makes a lot, but they go fast!
