One of my favorite seasonal cookies this time of year is gingerbread cookies, but I thought it would be fun to combine them with something we eat a lot in these cold weather months – rolled oats! In the summer I ate cold oatmeal at night using old-fashioned rolled oats, but now that it's cold, hot cereal with those hearty oats is a must! So why not put those hearty oats on a cookie?
The combination of spices in gingerbread cookie dough with chewy, hearty old-fashioned oatmeal makes these cookies a great Christmas cookie! We all know that December is coming and people have parties and cookie exchanges, so it's a great excuse to make these cookies.

First things first, head to Target to pick up the new Quaker Oats Limited Edition Winter Pack, only available at Target! It's in the hallway with the hot cereal and don't forget to grab your coupon before you leave!
I don't know about you, but I'm hungry to see all that oatmeal on the shelf! We love it for breakfast all year round, but especially in the cold weather months!
Next, I love that my kids help bake the treats we'll send to the neighbors, so find your little helpers and let's bake!
* Note: Do you see the Quaker Oats man with a scarf and the snow-covered pine trees in the Quaker Oats packaging? My kids found it a lot of fun! (Exclusively at Target)
This cookie starts like most. Mix the butter and sugar and combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.
Scrape the bowl and add the other wet ingredients: molasses, one egg, a little oil and vanilla.
Mix and match the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Make sure you have scraped the bowl well and incorporated everything thoroughly. I love that you can see the old-fashioned chunks of oatmeal in the batter!
Place the cookies on a cookie sheet prepared with a silicone mat, parchment paper, or baking spray.
Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 9 to 10 minutes until done. Let cool slightly on the tray before transferring to a wire rack.
