Oatmeal Rosemary Parmesan Bites

I found this recipe on thekitchn.com. The writer describes them as cookies, but they are really more of a non-sweet sort of treat. Fairly healthy. I ate them with a cup of green tea last night and it was amazing! If people still invite guests over for tea, this would be something yummy to serve with. I love this recipe because it contains some of my favorite ingredients. Rosemary, Parmesan, and olive oil. 

Here is what you need:
1 cup oats
1/4 cup warm water
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp  salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 tsp rosemary
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Here is how its made:
1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
2. Place the oats and water in a large mixing bowl.
3. In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, brown sugar and egg. Pour this mixture over the oats, stir to combine.
4. In another mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking soda, rosemary, and black pepper. Stir in the Parmesan.
5. Gradually sprinkle the flour mixture over the oat mixture, stirring until combined.
6. Form 1 TBS size scoops of batter and place, evenly spaced on a greased cookie sheet. 
7. Sprinkle a pinch of salt on top of each.
8. Bake for 15-17 minutes, until the edges are slightly darkened. 

When I made it, I only had about a third cup of Parmesan, but they still turned out tasty. I will definitely try it with a full cup next time though.

Also, I would suggest breaking the rosemary into smaller pieces if they are pretty long, else it is a little awkward to bite into.
