There are some food that is always in you pantry, like oatmeal. Besides having with milk for breakfast, I often make them into cookies.

Cookies are very quick and easy to make, and it perfect for my afternoon treat at work. I usually make more than a dozen because I can save the dough in the fridge. Simply take it out before baking.
