Sweet Treat {Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies}

TGIF! Happy friday beauties! What are your plans this weekend? 

I'm excited to try a new dinner spot tonight. On Saturday I'm looking forward to a gathering with some friends I haven't seen in a long while. Other than that, maybe a late breakfast one morning, Yoga and some art and house projects.

I made the above chocolate chip oatmeal cookies last weekend and they turned out moist and super yummy! See the recipe below:

What you need

  • 1 cup butter, softened {I use earth balance butter}
  • 1 cup packed organic light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup organic white sugar
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups organic all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • A little less than 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips {I like to use dark chocolate} 


  • What to do
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in the quick oats, walnuts, and chocolate chips. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
  3. Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


Have a beautiful weekend.
