Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies are chewy cookies with oatmeal, chocolate chips and walnuts. I love them. They simply swept me off my feet when I tried them for the first time.
Do you like oatmeal cookies? Are you a chocolate fan? Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies are the perfect combination of oatmeal and chocolate chips, enriched with walnuts.
Pecans or some other nuts or raisins can be used instead of walnuts. Don‘t forget the cinnamon for its smell and taste. Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies are very easy and quick to prepare.
It only takes a while and you get to enjoy their taste for a few days. How cool is that? Making cookies has a positive effect on me, it makes me feel better and it makes me smile. I love it when my home smells like fresh baked cookies. A plate of cookies on the table gives a home some special, warm atmosphere. I like these cookies with a glass of milk or tea.
They are a great snack and a perfect choice when you crave for something sweet. Oatmeal makes them crunchy while the chocolate melts…My family loves Chocolate Chips Oatmeal Cookies. While they are still in the oven, there is only one question: “Are they read, yet?” and then “When can we try them?” follows. These cookies are very filling; 2-3 are all you need for a nice snack.
