Savory Oatmeal Cookies

Lucille Hoerle


I found this recipe from Pinterest this morning and I thought it would be something that I would really enjoy as an appetizer especially for company prior to a meal. It is listed on this web blog:

I can usually tell when reading a recipe whether or not my family and I will enjoy it. This one is a definite possibility.

How to Make Savory Oatmeal Cookies


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.

    Place the oats in a large mixing bowl and sprinkle
    the water over them.

    In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, brown sugar and
    egg. Pour this mixture over the oats, stir to
    combine, and set aside.

    In another mixing bowl, combine the flour, fine sea
    salt, baking soda, rosemary, and black pepper.

    Whisk to combine well. Stir in the Parmesan.

    Gradually sprinkle the flour mixture over the oat
    mixture, stirring until combined.

    Form 1 tablespoon size scoops of batter and place,
    evenly spaced on a parchment paper or baking mat-
    lined cookie sheet. Flatten each piece of dough to
    about 1/4-inch thick. Use your hands to form an
    even disk. Sprinkle a pinch of salt on top of each.

    Bake for 15-17 minutes, until the edges are
    slightly darkened.

    Remove to a cooling rack. Serve with soft cheese,
    or alone, stuffed into coat pockets, as a mid-day
