These Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies are a classic! Perfect for snacks and lunch boxes!
What did the world ever do without cookies? Seriously. Cookies are a household staple around here…I’m always baking some kind of cookie for snacks and lunches. This particular recipe for chocolate chip oatmeal cookies is one that I have been making for years, and in fact this recipe was featured as one of my very first blog posts over here, but I thought I’d bring it back again in time for the school year!
These are a simple cookie to make, they’re school-safe, and kid friendly. We love classic chocolate chip cookies too, but I love the addition of the oats in this recipe, which somehow makes them seem more hearty and like they have a little extra nutrition. In fact I think this is the only cookie recipe that I made for my kids for the first few years of their lives…they didn’t even know any other kinds existed! Ha!
So if you’re looking to add another cookie recipe to your recipe box, this is a great one! Classic. Simple. Delicious.
