Oatmeal is good for you, right? So these Oatmeal Cookies with Dark Chocolate & Walnuts are really really good for you……
Okay maybe not – but these cookies are swoonworthy – and definitely packed with flavor. I like that they use old-fashioned oats – I think they hold up better, they don’t “dissolve” into the cookie – which means a better oatmeal-cookie-texture.
Use semi-sweet chips if you prefer, but I’m a dark chocolate fan for sure. They get a little crunchy and a little soft – great for lunchboxes, holiday gifts or dunking…or all three. I have a 3/4″ cookie scoop, and although it’s technically a uni-tasker – its a must-have in my kitchen. Using teaspoons to put cookies on a tray is old-school – and it works fine, but I never had look ending up with uniform size cookies.
I hope you like these – they’re so much better than oatmeal raisin cookies – which are gross – and just one reason to have trust issues. Raisins are ick.
