Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies- Taste of Home Tuesday

A little while back I inventoried my freezer and pantry and discovered that I had lots of duplicate items, among them, large cannisters of quick cooking oats.   I searched out recipes to use them on the Taste of Home site, and these cookies had amazing reviews.

My only change to the recipe was to omit the nuts due to allergies in the family. I found the dough to be a little on the dry side and ended up adding a tablespoon or two of water. I used a medium cookie scoop, next time I might even go up one more size.  I baked them at 350ยบ (convection setting) for 10 minutes.   The cookies didn't flatten out much, so I lightly pressed on them with a spatula after I took them out of the oven.

We loved these, they are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, perfect for dunking.  I think they would be amazing with chocolate pudding or cheesecake pudding too.  I also think that because they're made with oats, that makes them perfectly fine to eat for breakfast, right?  :)  Thank you so much to Diane N. for sharing her recipe!
