Easy homemade soft and chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! A perfect treat for the entire family!
Last week Mother Nature celebrated my birthday by gifting me a blizzard. The least she should’ve done is drop off a pie or cake to go with it. Oh well! I’m going to celebrate a little bit all month long to make up for it. I already redeemed my free popcorn at the movies the other day. I couldn’t pass up the chance to see Beauty and the Beast during it’s opening weekend. I pulled my girls out of school a little early to catch an afternoon showing with friends. Who knew we wouldn’t be the only ones with that idea? The theater was packed. Good thing we’re able to reserve our seats ahead or that could’ve been a problem. If you’ve been debating on whether or not you should go see it… go! It’s by far the best remake of a Disney classic to date and this is coming from someone who absolutely loved the original. It was magical and mesmerizing. A truly wonderful movie to enjoy at any age!
In other news… I had a sudden urge to reorganize our toy room this weekend. It was primarily to fix our Lego situation. I was tired of having everything lumped together in one giant bin. That made it beyond difficult to find what we were looking for at any given time. I was on a mission to fix that and separate everything by color. A quick road trip to Ikea with my youngest daughter… an even quicker trip in the store and back home to build our new storage units. A few gripes… we knew what we were going into the store for. I just needed to find a store model to see if they’d sell it to me because they were out of stock. Sadly they wouldn’t for safety reasons and such because it’s a children’s item. Okay, fine. No problem. But then I was stuck. Literally. There was no quick way to where I needed to go… the warehouse. We went down and around but there was no way unless we ran down the up escalator. Totally not happening. I know they do this on purpose, hoping you’ll buy other stuff on your way to the big ticket items. The only extra item we wanted were cinnamon rolls because you can’t go there without getting some! Also, can we briefly discuss the pain that comes with building their furniture? Yikes! My poor thumb turning that dumb hex wrench. Minor aches and annoyances aside, my organization mission was a success. Here’s to hoping the kids can keep it this way. Fingers crossed!
I’ve always been a huge fan of chocolate chip cookies. Oatmeal cookies are hit or miss for me. I have trust issues with oatmeal cookies. What if those dark spots inside aren’t chocolate… what if they’re raisins?! I’m not exactly a fan of raisins. They’re weird. I mean… they’re a classic addition to oatmeal cookies but not if I have anything to say about it.
These cookies rival my favorite classic chocolate chip cookies. That could only mean one thing…
These are amazing!
Thin, soft, chewy and absolutely perfect! This will absolutely become your new go to oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe. I’d highly recommend whipping up a double batch because these are guaranteed to disappear super fast.
Make sure these soft and chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are part of your baking plans! You won’t regret it!
