We love cookies in our house. All kinds of cookies, really. Although my family doesn’t really think they like cookies with oatmeal these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies have become a fast favorite since I first made them a few months ago.

Sadly my kids are past the lunch box age but I still like to have after school treats or something special for report card day or other big days.

Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and a glass of milk make a great after school snack.

I made these during exam week in May. They didn’t last long. My kids took them to school for a snack and enjoyed them after they got home. They are good and chewy.

I used traditional oats and I recommend them over the quick-cooking variety. Recently my niece started her freshman year at college. When I asked my family what we should send her in a care package to let her know we were thinking of her my kids mentioned these cookies first.

We sent them to her last week and it seems she’s made some new friends. After all, who doesn’t love getting mail or care packages while they are away at school? They arrived in perfect condition so it’s good to know they ship well.

  2. Funny how people make assumptions about the foods they dislike but then end up loving one of those things. Glad your family loves them because they certainly look good! Care packages are always the best with cookies like this!

  3. I think oats are lovely in a cookie and my kids are just 3 and 5 so they love lots of snacks! These would be perfect for my 5 year old as an after school snack!

  4. You had me at chewy. Wait, maybe chocolate chip! Anyway, these look like the perfect cookie for lunch or a snack.

  5. I always like adding oats to our cookies. I love the texture it adds and it helps with the fallacy that the cookie has some nutritional value to outweigh the sugar content LOL.
