I introduce to you, the ULTIMATE oatmeal cookie there ever was! They're massive in size and delicious in taste, and you don't have to take my word for it, you can make them and see for yourself!
Over the past two days I have been doing semi-live Instagram stories which I have found to really boost my confidence and make me feel more comfortable in front of the camera, which is something I was never (still not perfect) used to or really okay with. I saw one of my cooking role models doing this and thought, "well I can do that, I think?", and so i did, the very next day. I truly don't know why I felt the need to, but I really enjoyed it! It's also a way for people to see me in my baking environment and understand more about me. It's great to post pictures and YouTube videos but I think doing a live stream or semi-live (I've now dubbed it that) is something unique and makes people more interested in what you have to offer in your field, because they are actually seeing you in more or less real time doing what you love.
I plan to do many more in the future, more health based, quick breakfasts and lunches and hopefully will encourage people to see how easy these meals really are and end up making them that evening for dinner or the next day for breakkie.
Today I made these oatmeal cookies which are super easy to make and I had such a blast making them! I hope you all make them too and let me know what else you would like to see me make- just comment below pretty PLEASE!
