Recipe Tips & Notes

  • Every time I make these cookies, I think– too much oatmeal! These cookies are going to be so dense and tough! I promise, they’ll be just right. Just follow the recipe as it’s written, and you’ll have delicious oatmeal chocolate chip cookies!
  • Press a few chocolate chips into the tops of the cookies after they bake. It pretties them up a bit and makes them look so much more appealing. We eat with our eyes first, right?!
  • We almost always substitute half of the chocolate chips with M&MS. So good!!
