I love chocolate. Seriously. I really love chocolate. And I also love oatmeal. I have eaten oatmeal for breakfast for as long as I can remember. It was only right that I make oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
The best part about these cookies was that they were super simple to make. No one likes a recipe that is too complicated to even figure out how to make. Of course they were super healthy too with a base of oats and whole wheat flour.
Another great part about the cookies is that they literally only take 3-4 minutes to cook. You have to be careful, because they can over cook very easily.
I have really enjoyed the cookies reheated in the microwave today. It has been absolutely freezing in Indiana these past few days. The past two days my school has had 2 hour delays. Today we had a snow day due to the cold. It was -10 degrees F with a wind chill of about -30. Yeah, not very fun. At least I got the day off school!
But anyway, back to the cookies. They have about 6-7 grams of protein in each cookie. It may not seem like a lot, but considering most cookies only have 1 gram or less, it is pretty good. I used my Musclepharm vanilla combat protein powder in this recipe.

- Pour wet ingredients dry ingredients. Mix well. It will be a thick and sticky batter. Add ¾ (3 tbsp.) of the chocolate chips and fold into batter. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Scoop dough on to cookie sheet 2 tbsp. at a time to make 11 cookies.
- Gently press down with a fork to flatten a little. Add a chocolate chip to the top of each cookie. Bake for 3-4 minutes. Be careful they can dry out very quickly so do not over bake.
