If given the opportunity to choose a cookie to inhale, it will always be a chocolate chip cookie. However, these come in mighty close in the race of the cookie.
They are exceptionally chewy because of the oats and caramel bits. Mmmm!
And bonus! They’re made with whole wheat flour! Waahoo!
P.S. A little baby shout out to Laurie from The Corner Slice and her husband on their first baby!
