oatmeal & chocolate chip cookies

A few days ago, I was rummaging around the kitchen for something sweet. I found some forgotten oats and pounced on the idea of a quick batch of oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies.

I just used the basic Quaker Oats recipe but swapped chocolate chips for the raisins because that’s what I had on hand. It didn’t mess with the texture of the cookies and worked quite nicely.

1/2 cup plus 6 tablespoons butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups quick or old fashioned oats, uncooked
1 cup chocolate chips
