Cookies and milk is an all-time favorite and brings back great memories of my grandmother baking up her favorites when she visited.  We are making the ultimate Loaded Oatmeal Cookies Recipes with amazing mix-ins like raisins, toasted pecans, and chocolate chips. 

A nutrient-rich cookie served with a cold glass of 1% or Chocolate milk from Kroger and the kids will be satisfied until dinner.

Why we give our kids real Dairy milk?

Dairy milk has kept it real from the beginning as a wholesome, simple, minimally processed beverage.  Real milk has just three ingredients – milk, vitamin A and vitamin D.

This cookie dough is dense but so satisfying. We recommend pressing them down slightly after scooping them onto a baking sheet. The end result is a crispy outside with a chewy dense middle Oatmeal Raisin Cookie.

Heck, I had one with for breakfast with a Tea Latte.  If you can’t drink coffee or just like to mix up, the result is still a nutritious cup of tea with frothed milk. We use 1% milk but the higher the fat content the better the froth!

Have you ever made a Milk Tea Latte? It is a great alternative to a coffee latte and you can decide what type of tea you prefer, but an English Breakfast Tea is highly recommended.

What is a Tea Latte?

What Tea is Best for Tea Lattes? 

Since a tea latte is about combining tea and milk, a strong flavored tea that can hold up to the milk is the best tea to use.

To make a strong flavored tea, seep twice the amount of tea you would normally use and also keep it in the water longer. Remember you are diluting this with milk.
