For the 5th (!) time since the fall of 2020, the Bills are playing the Chiefs. Both teams are 4-1, and jockeying for the top spot in the AFC. Monster game calls for monster cookies! These are huge, filled with peanut butter, oats, chocolate chips, mini m&ms and milk chocolate chips. Go Bills!

Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

On occasion, I am asked “do you ever bake anything healthy?” For the most part, probably not. But today, I present you with oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. They have oatmeal, so that makes them healthy, right? 😏

Remember – 1) to scoop your flour from your flour bag into your measuring cup. 2) scoop out your dough and then chill it for a few hours. 3) preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking.

Cookie monster hasn’t gotten to them yet!

  • 1 cup vegetable oil

Frosting cancels out any health benefits, I think!
