Oat-Rageous Chocolate Chip Cookies
Here's another good one for a cookie fix! I got a craving for some and decided to give this well-rated recipe on AllRecipes a try. I've been trying to make some of the recipes I've had saved in my recipe folder there (some for years) instead of searching new recipes when a craving strikes, or I have a certain type of meat I know I want to cook. It's been working out well - we really enjoy pretty much everything I've tried from AllRecipes.
This cookie recipe is very easy, and you can change up the add-ins to your taste preferences. If you want more peanut butter, add in half Reeses Peanut Butter chips and half chocolate chips, add some nuts if you like those, use a mix of white and semi-sweet chocolate. I used semi-sweet and it works well. The only change I made is using Stevia in the raw in place of sugar. Everything else I followed per the recipe. I hand rolled these into 24 medium sized balls and baked 10-11 minutes until lightly browned then moved them to the cooling rack immediately.
They are nice and soft in the middle and delicious!
