{recipe review} heather's oaties

One of my favorite food/healthy living bloggers is Heather of Heather Eats Almond Butter. She likes healthy foods, she thinks butter is a good thing (oh thank you Heather), and she loves her oatbran & oats... just like me!

It's her constant journaling of healthy dinners made of greens, grass-fed beef, and fresh vegetables that inspires me on nights when I can't think of anything to make.

Another thing I love about Heather is her sweet tooth... and how she somehow manages to make dessert recipes with healthy things like rolled oats... and they are AMAZING. These little cookies are a variation of Heather's Butterfied Oaties ( for those who are wondering about the dairy thing -- while I cannot digest most types of dairy -- milk, yogurt, ice-cream, sour cream, etc... I can handle small amounts of buttah and I feel like it's a much better alternative than margarine).

I LOVE these little cookies. I've kept them at work as a snack throughout the day. They are crunchy, buttery, just sweet & salty enough! IT's a great combination and such an awesome way to make a healthy snack. Sure, as all snacks they need to be eaten in moderation... but they are really easy, egg-free, delicious chocolate-y snacks!!

Check out Heather's other varieties of Oaties and let me know what you think! Please make them!

Pin It!


  1. These look great. I especially love all the variations she includes. I miss oats a lot when I see pics like these, but it's still fun.

  2. omg these look so good! best bite sized baked cookies <3 <3

  3. Carrie - I tried to make these and it was an epic fail! Not sure what the problem was but I followed Heather's recipe and ended up with granola not oaties. They just went flat and wouldn't form cookies.
    Any ideas?
