National Oatmeal Cookie Day

It’s Oatmeal Cookie Day! Oatmeal cookies have been around for years. Although our modern-day version is much sweeter, oatcakes and oatmeal cookies share many of the same ingredients, including spices, nuts, and raisins.

Oats are an excellent source of iron and fiber (see HGIC 4052, Fiber) which explains why oatmeal cookies are the healthiest type of cookie! So, make a homemade batch on April 30th, 2022, to celebrate Oatmeal Cookie Day!

Ways to Celebrate: Whether baking them at home or purchasing from a bakery, National Oatmeal Cookie Day can be best celebrated by sharing with friends, family, and other loved ones!
