For the longest time, I used to struggle with getting my kids to eat any kind of ‘healthy’ snacks. Then one day I stumbled upon this particular recipe that I’m about to share with you guys for making oatmeal raisin cookie mix in a jar.
My kids absolutely loved these cookies. I have no idea why because I literally spent years trying to get them to eat healthier snacks like this with no luck. The great part about this recipe is that you can easily scale it up or down for small or large groups.
