Oatmeal Walnut Cookies

I’ve been away from The Baking Bud since last 2 months. Finally I’ve started baking again. All the reading and reviewing leaves me drained out and incapable of being able to stand in the kitchen and bake. If I’m not posting anything here, then you’ll find me at my book blog The Reading Bud.

Coming back to today’s topic, Oatmeal-Walnut Cookies are one of the most delicious and also healthy cookies. These are power packed bundles of sweetness which give you energy instantly. On a sad day, have some of these with a glass of cold milk and forget all your worries.
