This is my favorite chocolate chip oatmeal cookie to make. I love this recipe. It is so good and it is semi healthy because it has oatmeal in it. Cookies are healthy if they have oatmeal in it, aren’t they?
This recipe is adapted from an oatmeal cookie recipe that I found years ago. Although the original recipe was good, I thought it needed something more. By adding chocolate to it, I made a plain cookie great. Chocolate was just what these needed.
You can also make these with raisins, but chocolate chips are our favorite.
