12 Days of Christmas Cookies: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip

Bust out those aprons – it’s cookie time! Between now and Christmas, I’ll be sharing 12 delicious cookie recipes for you to try. Share some with your neighbors, bring some to a cookie swap party, or keep them all for yourself. I won’t tell anyone. Promise. 


Welcome to day 2 of my 12 days of Christmas cookies series.

Today I’m sharing with you a recipe for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Sure, they don’t scream Christmas, but they are a classic that will sure to please the taste buds of any recipient. 

I love how hearty these cookies look – they remind me of big, chunky Christmas sweaters. 

The recipe is versatile – you can add in raisins, berries or really whatever else tickles your fancy. I made another batch the last night and threw in some holiday colored peanut M&M’s and they turned out great. 




Pro-tip: just before baking, press a couple of extra chocolate chips into the top of each cookie to make them extra pretty (and chocolate-y)
