Although we don't usually consider cookies when we're talking about eating healthy, anyone who's ever been treat deprived knows that they key to success is having a few yummy treats when the cravings hit. These cookies are full of oatmeal and made with white wheat flour. My kids devoured them and had no idea they were even healthy. This will be the only post for this week because I will be out of town. See you next week!

1 ¼ cups sugar
1 ¼ cups butter
1 ¼ teaspoon baking soda
