Oatrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

This may be our new peanut butter cookie – I made half the recipe with chocolate chips and half without for my husband.  I liked them either way. 
I had mini chocolate chips on hand and used them – that spreads them more throughout the cookie.  Don’t be heavy-handed with the flour or oats, they will be too crumbly.  They keep well in the freezer either portioned and unbaked, or baked.   Bake the frozen dough a couple of minutes longer without defrosting first.   
These are quick and easy, and I think everyone will like them.

  1. I recently found your blog, and I think it's fantastic. I try to avoid meat/eggs/dairy, but I love how you capture the essence of living in Iowa and the great recipes you provide. I'm sure I can "veganize" these cookies and they will still taste great! Thank you for sharing.

  2. Hubby can't get enough of these cookies. Just got the 3rd batch out of the oven. They will be gone by Sunday. Oh, and I helped too!! (eat them, of course) Thanks for posting such a delicious recipe. I like them, as they remind me of "Reese's Peanut Butter Cups". And, since, they are too expensive to buy anymore, these cookies are the best replacement. Enjoy your website. M

    1. We certainly liked them...my husband especially too.


Hi...we'd love to hear from you.
