- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 Tablespoon honey

For the cookies:
In the large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars at medium speed until light and creamy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the egg, vanilla, and honey; set aside.
In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cloves. Stir in the quick oats.
Slowly mix dry ingredients into the wet ingredients at low speed until fully incorporated, but do not over mix. Use a large (3 Tablespoon) cookie scoop to drop dough balls onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart.
Bake for 10 minutes, until golden. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to completely cool.

*Only have whole-rolled oats on hand and not quick-cooking oats? You can make your own quick-cooking oats by grinding 3 cups whole-rolled oats in your blender or food processor until fine.
