Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Let’s talk about cookies. I am a fan. Always have been, always will be. I usually prefer my cookies to be homemade. They just taste better to me. I am a fan of chocolate chips in my cookies…LOTS of chocolate chips. They make me happy!

But…if I were to buy a cookie…I would prefer to buy myself a cookie from our local Mrs. Fields Cookies. These Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are one of the closet recipes we have found to Mrs. Fields Chocolate Chip Cookies. And this my friends is a good thing!

Even though I can’t eat these anymore…my kids can. Back to school always means Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies at my house. It was a tradition in my home growing up that I have carried through into my own home.

It has been a while since we made this particular recipe because we have been making the World’s Best Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies or our Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies.

So, when the kids started back to school last week, I whipped up some of these delicious Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.

They were a big hit. My husband wondered why we hadn’t been making these more often. (Probably because I don’t like to torture myself with having them in the house when I can’t eat any) Smile

    This look SOOO good!!! :) Quick question, do you have to blend the rolled oats in a blender first or can you just add them as is??

      Great question. I like them blended first. You could add them whole but I feel like that makes the cookie dryer in the end and not as moist!
