I used my stick blender (this one) with the bowl attachment to grind up my oats. I didn't get to a fine powder but pretty darn close for my liking. I had only one clean small cake pan to bake them in so I did several batches. For the first two I plopped dough onto a paper lined pan. For the second two I stirred in some cinnamon chips to the dough then rolled into balls with my hands. That seemed to make evenly sized cookies better. All up, so stinkin yummy I might have to abandon my previous oatmeal cookie recipes!

VANILLA OATMEAL COOKIES
Adapted from Milk and Cookies.
165g unsalted butter, softened (3/4 cup)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup plain flour
1 1/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 180 C and line 2-3 trays with baking paper.
In a blender or food processor, grind up the oats to a fine powder. Set aside.
Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and both sugars until light and creamy. Add the egg and vanilla, mixing well.
On a low speed, beat in the flour, oatmeal, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Eat some cookie dough.
Drop tablespoons of dough onto the lined baking trays. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the edges are lightly golden. Makes 32 cookies.
Give these babies a try, even if you don't like oats.
