Heavenly Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Yesterday was absolutely disgusting outside! It literally rained for 24 hrs straight. I don't mind the rain when I can stay inside all day, in my bed, in my pjs, with a good book. But, when I had to get to campus by 7:45am in work clothes...I'm wasn't a happy camper. My cognitive science professor was AWESOME though and brought biscotti for the class. Talk about a quick turn around. As I sat there in my wet shoes eating my biscotti I thought, you know what I should make?! COOKIES! After many hot beverages at work (at least 6), I figured warm cookies would be the best way to turn the day around.

Please excuse the iPhone photos...



Heavenly Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
*I used the recipe on the bottom of the oatmeal lid as a guide

Ingredients
-1.5 cups flour
-2 cups oats (instant)
-chocolate chips!
-3/4 cup brown sugar
-1/2 cup sugar
-1 tsp baking soda
-1/2 tsp cinnamon
-2 eggs
-1 stick + 6TB butter (the real thang, not tub butter)
-1 tsp salt
-2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions
  • Mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in 1 bowl.
  • Mix butter (at room temp.) and sugar in another bowl. Add vanilla extract and eggs.
  • Add dry ingredients to the wet ones.
  • Stir in chocolate chips and oats!

I baked these on 350 between 15-17 minutes. It really depends on how big your want the cookies. Regarding cookies, my motto is always "Go Big or Go Home." So, I had some pretty big cookies.




 Cookies + unsweetened vanilla almond milk = :)

Look at all of that chocolate!
