National Oatmeal Cookie Day on April 30th each year recognizes a delicious and nutritious cookie. This day is also often recognized on March 18 in conjunction with National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day.

Oatmeal cookies have been around since the 1800s. The cookies quickly became popular, and by early the 1900s, a recipe for the delicious treats appeared on containers of Quaker Oats. Oatmeal cookies are also considered health food because they are an excellent source of iron and fiber. Just another reason to have an oatmeal cookie today! Some of the other benefits of the oatmeal in the cookies include:

  • It may lower cholesterol.
  • Oatmeal reduces the risk of heart disease.
  • It may reduce your risk of cancer. (According to the American Cancer Society, eating a diet high in fiber may help reduce your risk for cancer.)
  • The grain is low in fat.
  • Oatmeal is low in calories.
  • Add oatmeal to your diet as a good source of iron and fiber.
