Mom’s Chewy Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I feel like I should get personal for a minute here, and share a secret about myself… I love cookies. Okay, so this is not really a secret if you follow me on instagram and see how often I bake cookies…but it’s a serious love. Like the ridiculous, all consuming, inconvenient love of great love stories. Guys, I really love cookies.

If you asked me what my favourite cookie is, I probably wouldn’t be able to give you an answer. I love all the different kinds of cookies for different reasons, so making a definitive decision on which flavour is my favourite seems like an impossible task.

That being said – whenever I check out a new bakery, if they have oatmeal cookies on the menu, I can guarantee you that I will be buying one (okay most likely two) of those oatmeal bad boys – that is, in addition to probably about ten other items…

Oatmeal cookies are the bomb; and these oatmeal cookies are the frigen best! Okay that was a really bold statement – maybe they aren’t “the best,” but they are effing delicious. Like eat half the cookie dough, and the whole tray of baked cookies good. And if you don’t believe me, you should probably make a batch right now… like right now. I mean it. You need these cookies in your life.
