He’s grew up with oatmeal so he really liked the oatmeal-ly texture of this cookie.

I liked it but it’s not an oatmeal cookie by any means of the word. Since the butter and sugar are missing, it’s more like eating a bowl of oatmeal. I didn’t grow up with oatmeal so I’m still not a fan of the texture (no matter how many times I try to like it!). It’s more of a healthy cookie and maybe I’ll take the point hit next time by adding some mini chocolate chips to add a little more sweetness.
