Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Standard

As a kid, I thought oatmeal cookies were ok, but when there were chocolate chip cookies around I would always choose one over an oatmeal cookie. This recipe is a great blending of the two. You can also add 1 cup of chopped nuts if you like, but I wanted my toddler to be able to eat the cookies (which she did with gusto), so I didn’t include them in the recipe.
