Fact: Cookies are better when they’re loaded up with chocolate chips.
Fact: Oatmeal cookies are 1000 times better when they have chocolate chips, not raisins. I’ll take an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie over an oatmeal raisin cookie any day of the week. No contest.
You feel healthy eating these cookies because they contain 3 cups of oats. You feel a little indulgent because they contain lots of chocolate chips. It’s the little things in life that are important.
These cookies are easy, delicious, and a great way to use oats that doesn’t involve making oatmeal. They’re also perfectly soft in the middle without breaking apart, and nice and slightly crunchy on the outside. I don’t know much, but I do know how I like my cookies and I don’t want to be breaking my teeth, but I also don’t want them crumbling apart in my hands.
A good cookie is important.
Pair these cookies with tea or coffee, light a fun candle, and celebrate the autumn season. That basically means rain in Portland for the next nine months, but I’m not ready to complain just yet. I’m sure in a few weeks I’ll wish it was summer again, but we could really use this rain so for now, I’ll keep my mouth shut.
Unless I’m eating one of these cookies.
