Sweet Sundays: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe


Cookies

Last night I had a sweet tooth. Normally I like watching Cops on Saturday at 8pm, but if I didn’t get my sugar fix, I may have been the one in cuffs by the end of the evening. I’m kidding – like 80% kidding.

So while I listened to Cops from the kitchen, I whipped up my favorite oatmeal chocolate chip recipe. They have a nice crunch on the outside, but inside, they’re gooey, chewy and delightful.

The recipe is below. Enjoy!
