Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

When I was in high school, our cafeteria made these amazing oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. 

Let’s be honest, they were probably brought in frozen and baked each morning, but what teenager is really thinking about that anyway?

If you got to school early before the first bell, you could get one fresh out of the oven, chocolate still a bit melty. They were AMAZING (and worth the early wake up).

Ever since, oatmeal cookies have been my favourite. This version is light, not too sweet, but still has those necessary chocolate chips.

Just say no to oatmeal raisin!

Make these when you’re feeling a bit nostalgic.
