It’s that time again!! Secret Recipe Club Reveal Day. Sadly, I am very late with this post! I have to apologize to the Club and to Kristin the head chef at Loving Life. We were given our assignments in December and there has been a lot of holidays, life, and craziness between that date and today.
I feel so lucky to be able to take over Kristin’s kitchen this month because she has such a nice organize kitchen full of wonderful recipes. I have to admit I had a ton of trouble narrowing down what I was going to make but when I needed a quick and easy batch of cookies for a party my husband and I were invited to I knew exactly what I was going to be making! The Loving Life Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe stood out because instead of just flour it also has oatmeal in the batter. I love oatmeal cookies and I love chocolate chip so what better than the combination of the two?

I must admit that after I decided to make this recipe I almost felt like I was “pupping out” on the club because I chose something as simple as chocolate chip cookies, but boy was I WRONG! These cookies are incredible!
This recipe is delicious! It’s rich, creamy, and bakes up beautifully! The flavor is something to write home about. Next time I am trying them with either, nuts, M&M’s or raisins! They don’t do a lot of spreading which I love. I always cram too many cookies on a pan so I normally end up with three giant cookies but not in this case!
The only problem I had was getting my mixer to want to mix everything at the bottom of the bowl. I love you Kitchen Aid, but at times, this is where you fail! In the end I did a final mix with my hands. No biggy! Like I was complaining about licking my fingers. 😉
Here are my beautiful chocolate chip cookies! I had to snap my pictures fast because they went super-fast. As soon as they came out of the oven I was having to scoot everyone out of the kitchen. They taste even better than they smell. Yes, that’s possible! Why knew?
