Feature: Chocolate Oatmeal Drop Cookies: Two Favorites in One Easy Cookie Recipe

Chocolate Oatmeal Drop Cookies are a combination of two popular cookie recipes, a favorite cookie flavor (chocolate chip cookies) with a favorite cookie texture (oatmeal cookies.) So … are they an oatmeal cookie recipe with chocolate chips? Or a chocolate chip cookie with oatmeal?

Yes, both!

... but this recipe leans towards the oatmeal cookie category because the dough is so thick, like oatmeal cookie dough. That’s one reason the recipe calls for baking them at a lower temperature. A slower oven means the cookies have the chance to bake evenly.

Bottom line: this an easy cookie recipe that takes just 10 minutes to mix together and get into the oven. Everybody loves them because they are two favorites in one. Plus the cookies freeze well and are perfect for lunch boxes (if you can hide them long enough to pack them in lunches.)

Prep time: 10-15 minutes
Bake time: 11-12 minutes, divided
Makes about 2 ½ -3 dozen cookies
