Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies(90/366)

Sometimes life just needs cookies. Not because it’s been terribly stressful or difficult or trying, but simply because cookies are delicious.

Oats and Chocolate Chips

Oats and chocolate chips are a match made in heaven. To be perfectly honest, I’ve usually made my oatmeal chocolate chip cookies using…a mix. I know, collect yourself off the floor right now. What? Cookie mixes are good! But these cookies? These cookies are better.

I made this cookie dough a couple of days ago. Giving the dough overnight to chill makes these cookies better. They are chewy and satisfying. I love the texture the oats add, and if there’s oats in something, it probably means it’s healthy, right?

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars. Beat in the eggs one at a time, being sure each egg is full incorporated before adding the next one. Add the vanilla.
