Oatmeal Cookies {Fully Loaded}

Oatmeal Cookies {Fully Loaded}Well, what can I say about these fully loaded oatmeal cookies except they are perfect.  Oh, and they’ve been our signature cookie for the last year thanks to my mom reintroducing me to them.  She has made this particular recipe for too many years to count and it is super delicious just the way it is.  Soft, chewy, and loaded with oatmeal.  I took her recipe and added to it.  Think of an oatmeal cookie with chocolate chips and white chocolate chips. Yum.  Then add splashes of more oatmeal and coconut and toffee bits.  Yum, again.  Like I said, this is a perfect cookie.

Makes about 7 dozen cookies

    Yum! Gotta love oatmeal. I’d add me some dried cranberries, too. 🙂 Thanks for sharing a family recipe.

      Well hello, Leilani. Let me know how it is with dried cranberries. I wouldn’t like it that way cuz I don’t like them but that’s what’s great about

    Oh so yummy! I love loaded cookies, especially if I can justify it with oats 🙂

      I know what you mean. It somehow makes them seem more nutritious, therefore we can eat more. Right?
