    These are my favorite kind of cookie. I will have to try your recipe out. Thanks for sharing with us at Family Joy Blog Link Up Party this week! Have a great rest of your week. Hope we see you next week.

    These look so good! The oatmeal gives so much flavor and moistness to the cookie and the chocolate chips put it over the top! This might just be my new favorite! And I love the added fiber from the oats too!!! Checking out that silpat mat. I’ve never heard of it! Thanks.

      I can say for certain, they are good!! I love oatmeal cookies, but switching it up with a little chocolate is awesome! I love that you get a little fiber too! Yum, yum, yum!

    My husband absolutely loves oatmeal chocolate chip cookies – I love them for the spices and we haven’t found a good recipe we both like – He loves crispy – I love gooey – but these sound like the perfect compromise, so I am pinning and printing this one to try this weekend. Thank you so much – 🙂 I found you at #WayWow

      Oatmeal cookies are one of those comfort treats that always tastes good. Let me know what you think…making them with just brown sugar gives them the perfect flavor!

      Nope, couldn’t agree more. Two of the best flavors mixed for one tasty cookie. I just love how they crisp around the edges and stay soft in the middle.

      Definitely a cookie you must put in your repertoire, Celeste! It’s so good with the rolled oats nestled next to the chocolate chips!!
