Do you love a crunchy cookie? I'm obsessed. These are the bomb! Trust me, I've made the crunchiest ever choc chip oat cookies and they are seriously yummy. These didn't last long and they were tested on a child other than mine- who enjoyed them...and her mum did too. So that says to me...independent testing!
These aren't the super healthy cookies, but I've tried to minimise the sugar and also have used dark chocolate chips. The make an awesome treat in the lunchbox and a great post school snack. Master 3 was particularly enthusiastic about them and helped with the mixing as well. He may or may not have stolen a few choc chips in the process. I may or may not have eaten some too. These cookies don't freeze well, but I guarantee they won't last long in a sealed container on the bench...
To be entirely honest, I ate a fair few of these myself. They are particularly good with an iced latte. Or anything really. Have you noticed a theme here? These cookies are AMAZING!
The best thing about these cookies? No mixer required! You do it all by hand and it's not hard at all. No butter creaming or anything like that. They also don't require any rolling or cutting, they are spoon cookies, which makes them easier again.
Cookies are easy to make -- you can even make them together with your kids. So if you want more of these, check these recipes below:
