Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Chocolate-Chip-Oatmeal-Cookies2-_-The-Blonde-Buckeye

I don’t like raisins in my oatmeal cookies.  There, I said it.  I know it’s a classic combo, but I just don’t like it.  Never have.  Chocolate chips on the other hand, that I like.  That’s why I made these.  Oatmeal cookies are a nice departure from traditional chocolate chip cookies.  They have a little more texture, but they are still sweet, chewy, soft, & in this case, chocolatey on the inside.  This was a little bit of an experiment, since I didn’t have enough old-fashioned oats.  But it was a happy mistake because as it turns out, using part quick oats & part old-fashioned oats, makes for a pretty awesome texture.  Not too grainy, but still with the texture you know & love in a classic oatmeal cookie.
