4.5 stars from 2 ratings of Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here is a very tasty cookie recipe for Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. i have been making them this way for years and my kids loved them and so do I. 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 fridge, it keeps for a long time and you can bake up a tray as you see fit to do so.

if you try them let me know what you think?

nothing gets you through a movie like a plate of cookies and some milk
