Bake-a-thon 2016: Day 9
Bake of the Day: Chocolate Chip Oats Cookies
Chocolate Chip cookies are probably my kids most requested cookies of all. I’m sure most kids like them, so here’s a slightly different version of them with the addition of nutty tasting oats. These Chocolate chip oats cookies are soft and chewy. Adding oats takes them to a whole new level. Recipe is from King Arthur site.These cookies are great to give away as edible gifts during the holiday season or to bake for a bake sale. This recipe makes a ton of cookies depending on the size you choose. They make about 20 palm size jumbo cookies, about 50 tablespoon size ones and a 100 mini cookies.I made a few mini cookies and a few tablespoon size cookies. My kids loved these cookies and they have been sharing them with their friends at school. I recently started to teach in Manabadi and I gave my class kids some of these cookies as end of the year treats.This is part of the Bake-a-thon 2016.
