Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies may be one of the most underrated cookies of all time. Simple, wholesome, and oh so good!
My kids hear the word oatmeal and they back away. Oatmeal isn’t something I have ever made them for breakfast, probably because I personally am not a fan.
Oatmeal cookies on the other hand? I’m a huge lover of chewy cookies filled with raisins. Or chocolate covered raisins. Unfortunately I end up having to eat the entire batch, because my kids see those raisins and they KNOW oatmeal cookies are in front of them.
So what’s my compromise? I filled these oatmeal cookies with mini chocolate chips. LOADED them! I even added some extras on top, so they can SEE the chocolate goodness in each chewy cookie.
Yeah, these cookies went over quite well in our house. Because of the mini chips there was no confusing these cookies with oatmeal raisin cookies. Ever take a bite of what you think is an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie only to find out it’s a raisin? For some of us, we don’t mind. But by exchanging those regular chocolate chips with minis, you won’t confuse anyone!
The downside to this compromise? I had to share the batch of cookies….
