When it comes to cookies, people usually either go for chocolate chip or for oatmeal, but why should you have to choose when you can make Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies?! Not only do they satisfy both cravings, adding oatmeal to your chocolate chip cookies provides more fiber, and adding dark chocolate chips to your oatmeal cookies bring on more antioxidants. Both of those reasons proves this combination is a good thing.
At a recent event, I had the chance to show others how to make my Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, and we focused on sharing them with others. I loved the thought of baking with the intention of surprising others with a sweet treat, so after making a batch, I boxed up some of my Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, wrote a quick note and wrapped it up pretty, and sent them off. I gave a box to my daughters’ teacher, and one of my friends was delighted to get a delivery at work.
When you make my Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, you’ll find that it yields enough to keep some for yourself to enjoy and still have plenty to share, or you can even roll up some balls and freeze them for a later time. While these cookies would make a great gift, you don’t need a holiday to share the love of baking. I’m sure anyone would love to receive these Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies any time of the year!
