What is more comforting and perfect than a batch of warm chocolate chip oatmeal cookies fresh out of the oven?! These chewy, gooey cookies are packed with rolled oats and semi-sweet chocolate chips. These are the perfect cookies to whip up when you’re in need of a little comfort and self-care.
I’ve been sick the past few days and haven’t been able to blog. Oh my gosh, I can’t tell you how much I’ve missed you! I hated not being able to share recipes with you and keep up with things, so I’m really glad to be feeling better and able to post this.
Since I’ve been sick, I haven’t been by the store. Luckily, I had some rolled oats left over from making blueberry vanilla granola last week. I knew instantly what to make: chocolate chip oatmeal cookies!
Chocolate chip oatmeal is one of my favorite cookies. They are the perfect combination of classic and comfort: the chocolate chip cookie and the oatmeal raisin cookie. And this recipe, oh my gosh. These cookies are so chocolatey and gooey, I have to have a glass of cold milk with ’em. They are perfect for chocolate lovers (like me) with lots of semi-sweet chips in every bite. I know you’re going to love ’em.
Now that I’m feeling better, of course my sweetheart is now sick! Poor thing. No matter how careful we are…washing our hands and cleaning surfaces, if one of us comes down with something, we both get it. So, I’ll be munching on these cookies while I look after him.
