I just made a batch of these and they came out so delicious! My son doesn't like oatmeal and can usually spot it in a cookie a mile away but he had no clue that it was in these! They came out so chewy which are my favorite kinds of cookies. I'm going to have to make another batch now for my husband since my son and I are going to polish this batch off. Very good warm with a glass of ice cold milk.

Very Chocolatey : )

I added a dash of cinnamon as I do to almost all things chocolate and it added to the flavor in a good way.

These are so delicious. I have loads of oatmeal and was looking for a new way to make a oatmeal cookie. This was it. I have made it twice now and it will be made loads more. I used white chips as I was out of the chocolate chips and it was good too. Thanks for the great cookie
