Our Favorite Oatmeal Cookies

Total Time

These make a delicious, chewy oatmeal cookie that is perfect for adding things to. I do not like raisins, so I add chocolate chips. I use a cookie scoop that holds a little more than a tablespoon and the resulting cookies are the perfect size for having two without feeling guilty. :-)
