I know, I know, I talk a lot about how much we love cookies at this house. Well not only do we love cookies, but my guys continuously ask me to make the same cookies over and over again.
Considering I make LOTS of different cookies, it always kind of catches me off guard! Although they love pretty much any cookie I make, each of my guys has their personal favorite.
This cookie isn’t anything incredibly new or crazy, I simply experimented with the oat to flour ratio. This time I used less oats, and more flour. This is honestly a first for me. Usually I’m trying to get more oats and grains into the food we eat. Honestly, we love my regular Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, I just wanted to play around today.
So, what did my guys think of these cookies? They definitely noticed something was different. However, they said they liked the cookies both ways. It’s pretty tough to go wrong with oatmeal cookies!
Oatmeal cookies, especially with any kind of chocolate, but NO raisins, will always be their favorite!
