Nothing is quite as comforting as a big, warm chewy chocolatey cookie. Even better is when you find a recipe for Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies that will blow your mind. To me, something about oatmeal is just comforting, but when you add chocolate chips to a tasty oatmeal cookie dough (or BIG Hershey kisses inside cookie dough!), it is comforting AND amazing.

You might be surprised to learn that these quick oatmeal cookies have no butter, yet they taste very buttery. Nothing is better than a yummy, buttery cookie, am I right?

Directions:
Drop large spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet (or a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper). I typically use one of the large cookie scoops for these. Bake @ 350 degrees for 10 minutes, or until they are the desired texture.

I have tried plenty of oatmeal cookie recipes over the years, but this one is my favorite by far. Whether you want a big, thick, chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookie, or a crispy oatmeal cookie, you can have either with this cookie recipe. Just make smaller scoops for a crispy cookie, or you can even make large scoops and just cook them a bit longer.
