Oatmeal cookies are some of my favorites when done correctly, and by that, I mean fluffy, chewy, and not over-baked. The chewiness, the beautifully heartfelt feel, the oats’ nuttiness, and all the chocolate made a new favorite spin on a classic. It’s the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had, knowing that I am very picky about cookies made with oatmeal.
The cookies are very dense but not too dense. Overly thick cookies made from an oatmeal can turn dry or cakey, a complete deal-breaker. By comparison, they’re not too thin, which is nice because there’s nothing more unsatisfactory than biting into a paper-thin cookie. If you like your oatmeal cookies with raisins or nuts, feel free to add a handful of each. But if you don’t want, then put loads of melty chocolate in your cookies. Try this recipe for Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, and enjoy it with your loved ones.
