Crispy Oatmeal Cookies with Chocolate Chips!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies stacked on a plate.

I’ve never met a cookie I didn’t like… and these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are at the top of my favorites! They are crisp, are filled with oatmeal and have chocolate chips!!! What’s not to love?

I know oatmeal cookies traditionally have raisins, but sometimes you just need a little more chocolate in your life! These cookies have just enough chocolate to satisfy any chocolate cravings you might have.

These oatmeal  cookies travel really well too. A few weekends ago I traveled to Boise to watch my daughter’s high school team compete in a state championship competition for cheer. They didn’t win the state title, but they did an amazing job and are winners in my book!

I brought a lot of cookies with me for the drive. It’s quite a drive so I needed a lot!  Eight hours of driving each way. Cookies and sunflower seeds keep me focused on the road. I’m afraid I ate a lot of cookies!

Sometimes I love a soft chewy cookie, but then sometimes I want a crispy cookie. These cookies are crispy. The edges are just slightly browned and the brown sugar has caramelized.

    What a coincident! I’ve never met a cookie I didn’t like either! πŸ˜‰ I’m a soft and chewy cookie kind of girl, through and through. But my husband is a crispy kind of cookie guy, so I KNOW he would just adore these! I mean, with oatmeal and chocolate chips, what is not to love, right!? Cheers!

    Yummy! I made crispy chocolate chip oatmeal cookies last week too, but I made mine crispy by adding some Rice Krispies to it. I froze about half the batch. Yeah there’s so much more you can add to oatmeal chocolate chip cookies just to give it that little extra pizazz like sunflower seeds or craisins. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    Woah…8 hours each way is indeed quite a drive! That certainly calls for delicious cookies, and I love cookies with oatmeal in ’em. I can’t believe I’ve never tried subbing chocolate chips in for the raisins in oatmeal cookies! I need to go try this ASAP…because now I can’t stop thinking about cookies. πŸ™‚

    I haven’t met a cookie I didn’t like either πŸ˜‰ Oatmeal cookies are such a classic, but then add chocolate and it just takes the whole thing to another (yummy) level. No better treat than cookies for a road trip if you ask me πŸ™‚

      It’s a good thing road trips only come every so often….otherwise I’d be consuming my weight in cookies!
