Best Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect healthy Oatmeal Cookies, filled with chocolate chips, baked to perfection and perfect with a glass of milk! Your new favourite Chocolate Chip Cookies.
It has been more then 30 years since I last visited Winnipeg, Manitoba. But every time I make or eat these Best Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies I remember the first time I tried them in my wonderful friend’s kitchen in Winnipeg.
I lived in Winnipeg for 1 year, and oh my goodness those winters are certainly harsh! so I guess it felt reassuring to have those Chocolate Chip Cookies close by.
And believe me these are the best. I rarely use that word unless I believe it and my oh my I can never get enough of these cookies.
They aren’t your average Chocolate Chip Cookie, they might actually be healthier than the majority of recipes out there. I really like them not only because of the amazing taste, but because they are on the thicker side which I really prefer to the thinner cookies.
I made these on May 1st in Italy (a big National holiday here.) We got together with friends for our first bbq of the season and these were one of the desserts I brought.
And they loved them! I even had to go back home and translate the recipe that day it was that requested.
So if you want a fast, easy, delicious and don’t forget thick cookie without having to refrigerate the dough, then these chocolate chip cookies are just what you are looking for.
