4.5 stars from 2 ratings of Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here is a very tasty cookie recipe for Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. We have been making them this way for years and our kids loved them. You can whip up the entire batch and store them in your cookie jar or you can create the batter and store it in the freezer, it keeps for a long time and you can bake up a tray as you see fit to do so.

This recipe is easy to spice up with small amounts of shredded coconut or raisins for that added touch.Simply add half as much again of the extras as you did the chocolate chips. You can switch this ratio around if you wanted to make the chocolate chips a secondary addition instead of the primary addition.

You can even omit the chocolate chips all together in favor of some other ingredient for a healthier snack with less sugary content.

Regardless on if you are stuck home on a rainy day or on the way to your favorite picnic site on a sunny afternoon, these cookies are a great treat. They store easily and once cooled do not produce a ton of crumbs or break apart in the bag during transport.

These cookies taste great for a long period after baking so you can store them for later consumption or to be sent to school as lunch treats for your school aged children. Great on the road too. nothing like a bag of home made cookies and your favorite cup of coffee for that long drive ahead.

The possibilities are endless and the taste never fails to impress.

The cooking time varies from oven to oven. The time can also vary depending on how big you make the dough balls. Any size is possible although extra large is sometimes impractical. It can be anywhere between 8 minutes and ten minutes depending on size and oven heat. I have learned this over the years making this recipe in a variety of different ovens.

Cooking time also depends on how soft you want your cookies.

Staying home can be boring and even stressful at times. It is always good to get out of the house but sometimes it just isn't possible. No matter why you are stuck at home, baking and cooking is a great way to pass the time in a constructive manner that will keep you grounded and comfortable, even in semi-isolation.

It is also a good activity for spending time with your family members and just talk. Many simple and interesting conversations happen while baking and at the end of it everyone gets a delicious treat.

Kids, of course, love the cookies and grandma's kitchen, filled with excellent treats and awesome smells, will become one of their favorite childhood memories. I still recall fondly the smells and tastes of my own grandmother's kitchen.

Then there are the health benefits. As with most of our foods, anything out there that is cheaper than making your own is normally not worth eating. The best cookies come from your own oven and the best hamburgers from your own grill.
