OATMEAL CHOCO-RAISIN COOKIES

oatmeal raisin chocolate cookie recipe

I love to bake… but I don’t do it often.  Mainly because every time I do, I end up eating EVERYTHING I make.  Last week, Grace and I needed a pick-me-up and got to work on these super chewy chocolate raisin oatmeal cookies.  They were scrumptious and made for a wonderful dessert/ breakfast/ midnight snack/ reward system treat for Grace (parenting is tough…whatever works… right?)  Needless to say, we really liked them and thought we should share the recipe with you all.  Happy baking!!!
