Heavenly Oatmeal Cookies

Well, we are on spring break here. And Monday and Tuesday brought snow. Monday it was such wet snow, the power was out for a few hours. My husband and I had been watching one of our shows, the kiddos were in bed, and it was pitch black. I didn't sleep very well. I'll just admit I'm afraid of the dark! Today it's finally sunny, but not warm. It's been a strange spring break for sure! I have a recipe card today to share. I love these cookies!


The original recipe called for raisins instead of chocolate chips. Every once in a while I make these with raisins, but usually I go for the chocolate! Enjoy your Wednesday. We're off to play with cousins and then I'm hoping for some craft time later today.

OK - so the 2 1/2 c. oats is that (2) 1/2 cups or is that 2 and a 1/2 cups? And the same for the chocolate chips...(1) 1/4 cup or 1 AND a 1/4 cup? Thinking if it's the latter - one could do 1/2 raisins and 1/2 chocolate chips? Not that I'm a baker or anything - LOL
I'm totally skeered of the dark. And showering when no one is home.
Too many crazy movie watchin' as a kid, I guess - heh.

Bummer that you are still having winter when it's supposed to be spring.

I don't like when the power is out either. For me it's not the dark at night but the silence. I sleep with a fan on as "white noise". I'm such a light sleeper that if I don't have that running I can hear every time a cat moves around or the ticking of the clock and it wakes me up and I have a hard time getting back to sleep.

Chocolate chips in oatmeal cookies... healthy decadence!
