Chewy Caramel Cookies

I am a complete chocoholic, as you well know.

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!

  1. Ooh yum bear! Those look delish! And John loves caramel so I’ll have to bookmark this one.

    short story: I had a dream last night and you were in it! You were wearing purple from head to toe and we met in a coffee shop. You looked adorable, that’s mostly all I remember. Oh, and that you had a big beautiful smile! Just gawg-eous.

    Is it weird that I have dreams with blog friends in it? Hope not, cause I’m feeling pretty vulnerable right now…

  2. These look faaabulous, and like I could whip them up pretty quickly when the desire strikes! (Not that that ever happens to me…umm…) I do love cookies with brown sugar and oats–the sweetness and texture is so great!
