Hearty & Chocolatey Oatmeal Cookies
Do you ever have that overwhelming craving for freshly baked cookies? I found myself quite hungry laying in bed last night and the instant I received a text message from my friend Joe from Cornell expressing his desire for some Oreos and milk, I knew I was craving some wholesome, mouthwatering cookies. Upon waking up this morning, I ran straight for the kitchen to bake. I have such an affinity for these type of cookies. They are our “go to” cookies whenever my Mom and I have an urge to bake. We replace the butter with coconut oil which makes a world of difference. The coconut oil makes them fluffier, lighter, and semi guilt free. They’re chewy, grainy, wholesome, chocolately, and very, very filling. Never has food evoked such positive emotions inside of me. During my most stressful moments of college, I’ve received a package full of these cookies from my Mom and I can’t tell her how much I appreciate them. The earthy smell, grainy texture, and sweet taste make these the most delicious cookies I’ve ever had. I hope you enjoy them!
