Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

by Nicole on October 2, 2012

Morning! I’m excited to share this cookie recipe with you today because well, they are delicious AND new recipes are rare around here these days.

Saturday we went apple picking and after I ate lunch when we got home I had some intense chocolate cravings. I’ve been in the habit of grabbing some chocolate chips out of the container after lunch. I grabbed a nice handful, ate them and then immediately decided I needed to have some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

I did a quick internet search and came across a recipe from Eating Well that just needed some tweaking. They are on the healthy side, but definitely tasty. I also added some ground chia seeds for an extra nutritional boost. I’ve been eating 2 or 3 of these a day. I kept a couple out and then froze the rest. They are chewy and subtly sweet, so they are perfect any time of day. Like at 9:16 am when I had one yesterday.


They are super easy and only require one bowl. A winner in my book. These are more of a chewy cookie, rather than a crisp one, which is what I was going for.

I think I shall have one for my pre-walk fuel.

Some fun: My friend Kristin sent this to me yesterday. This is real and how my family talks. In fact Danny gets in trouble when he completely Americanizes words like ricotta or mozzarella. Enjoy!

Hoping to get in a walk and a little weight training today. We’ll see! Have a great one! :)

These will be great for after the baby comes, too! Oatmeal is great for increasing milk production (plus you will be STARVING ALL THE TIME) – nursing moms really ARE eating for two!
