Classic Oatmeal Cookies

I absolutely love oatmeal cookies!  I have been using this recipe for years making them!  I got the recipe from my mother's recipe box, but not sure exactly where it had originated.  You can also add chocolate chips, raisins, nuts or whatever else inside them too! I personally love chocolate in anything, but I skipped it this time to hopefully be a little healthier.

Using tablespoons, roll into balls.  Place the round cookie balls 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.  Flatten the cookie balls with a fork.

Bake 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned.  Let the cookies stand for 1 minute, then transfer to racks to cool.
