Oh these cookies. These soft, chewy, stuffed-full-of-add-ins cookies.
They’re chewy and hearty, the way a good oatmeal cookie should be, yet still pillowy-soft. They are packed with nutty whole rolled oats, chewy raisins, smooth chocolate chips, and crunchy walnuts, so you get lots of flavor and texture in every bite. And best of all, they are SO easy to make – all it takes is one bowl, a spoon, and ingredients you probably already have on hand. Oh, and they couldn’t be more dunkable.
These cookies leave me speechless. (Well, almost.)
You’ll be as utterly obsessed with these cookies as I am, but you’ll have to try them for yourself!
To get the (quick and easy) recipe, click through to my friend Zainab’s blog, Blahnik Baker, where I am guest posting for her while she works on a huge presentation for work. (Or just scroll down.)
And, psst, don’t forget, you don’t have to go out and buy any oat flour to make these; it’s so easy to make your own!
