It may help to understand the history behind National Oatmeal Cookie Day. This includes the origins of the oatmeal cookie and the oats themselves. There was an oatmeal cookie before there was an oatcake. And even before that, there was oatmeal.
Oats were first cultivated thousands years ago. They are a cereal crop that grows in temperate areas. Oats are actually the oldest cereal crop that humans have ever cultivated. Oats contain fiber and essential nutrients that are particularly useful for people with allergies to wheat and corn.
Traditional Scottish oatcakes, which have been popular in Scotland since at most the Roman period, are known for providing energy boosts that last until the middle of the ages. According to legend, soldiers carried the oatcakes during wartime for a quick snack that would last. They were sometimes described as “little pancakes, rather than communion wafers”.
Oatcakes may have come from an ancestral line, but they were crispier than today’s oatmeal cookies. Oatmeal cookies can still be enjoyed as a snack, even though they are more delicious and complex. Oatmeal can now be adorned with the best fruits, nuts, candy, and spices for supreme appeal in cookie jars all over the globe.
Although there is some evidence that oatmeal cookies were first made in England, it is difficult to verify this. Fannie Merrit Farmers, the American author of the original oatmeal cookie or at least the first to publish a recipe, appears to be the one who created it. Farmer was the principal at the Boston Cooking School. Her original recipe, published in the Boston Cooking School Cookbook Cookbook, used cream and milk, which aren’t common ingredients today for this cookie.
This original oatmeal cookie recipe didn’t contain raisins. However, the treat developed and sweet raisins (standard and golden) became a popular ingredient. Quaker Oats had an oatmeal raisin cookie recipe in every box from the 1900s.
National Oatmeal Cookie Day pays tribute to the versatility and taste of oats, and is worth celebrating!
