It has been months since I have done an Oatmeal Chocolate Chip recipe! It is hard to find the best when you are not baking, I have been slacking!  Time to get back in the kitchen.  Luckily this year I work with a lovely group of people who just happen to love treats, my kind of people!  A bakers dream, 5 willing tasters. Now I will bake more and not eat it all myself, Perfect!  This week I went with an Oatmeal Cookie recipe as I have still not found ‘My favourite Oatmeal Cookie’.

This recipe was found at Baking is my Zen, some great recipes, check it out!  I did change this recipe a tad.  I loved that they were thick and chewy, but my tasters are NOT fans of raisins, so I had to go with a chocolate chip version.  In doing so I omitted a lot of the spices, that I figured wouldn’t go as well with chocolate.

Unfortunately, I was not a fan of these cookies.  They were thick, but chewy as in tough chewy.  I won’t make these again.
