Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Maybe I’ve been spending a bit too much time dancing in my car to the new Tegan and Sara. Maybe it’s weird that I practice songs for karaoke when I have no plans of ever really singing one alone. Maybe I did sing “All I Want for Christmas is You” last year…in a group. Maybe the rumor is that we sounded like Kidz Bop. Maybe I had pizza for lunch and totally disguised my pizza-champ-eating-skills for the sake of being a lady. But most importantly; maybe I’ll just let these cookies ruin my dinner and feel perfectly fine about it.


I’ve been thinking about oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for awhile now. Ever since: my sister gave me a few giant bags of oatmeal + that time I saw this recipe on a Homesick Texan’s blog. They are delicious little two bite cookies that happen to be a bit addicting. You might eat one and feel the need to confirm your love by eating a few more. Don’t bother saying I didn’t warn you.
