Foodie Friday: Oatmeal Cookies

With an anniversary dedication and being so busy last Friday, it's been a few weeks since we last had a Foodie Friday post. Fear not, though, I have a great treat to share with y'all today! Nothing will ever compare to my love for a Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pie, but when looking for something on the healthier side, these cookies do the trick!
