  1. These cookies sound scrumptious! Will any instant oatmeal do, or does it have to be “Better Oats”?

    • Oh, I’m sure you could use any instant oatmeal, Mom. I had a lot of the Better Oats on hand, so that’s what I used. Quaker Instant oatmeal or a similar brand would work just fine though. 😉

  2. Hi, I shared your recipe with the link tabs above. I’m all about eating healthy!

    Question: Is it best to use apple flavored instant oatmeal for the apple flavor or would 1 cup of the Quaker quick instant oats work?

    Happy Fall!

    • The Quaker quick instant oats would work just fine in this recipe. I like the taste of apples and carrots together – that’s why I used the apple flavored oatmeal. I also thought about using Quaker High Fiber Instant Maple & Brown Sugar flavored oatmeal, and I may try that next time.

      Thanks so much for sharing the link. Let me know if you have any other questions.
