Oatmeal Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies


I made these Oatmeal Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies last week for our charity bake sale at work.  (I also made Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Treats too which sold out first!)  I was happy that all my baked goods were sold out during the bake sale.  These Oatmeal Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies were delicious.  I love the taste of the cinnamon chips in these cookies and adding chocolate chips and craisins made the cookies even more awesome!  I mostly followed the recipe that was on the back of the Hershey's Cinnamon Chips bag, but of course I changed it up a bit to my taste.  These cookies will be great to share during the holidays, enjoy!


Oatmeal Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 ½ cups flour

In a stand mixer, beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until creamy.


Add in eggs one at a time and vanilla.

In a bowl, whisk together flour and baking soda.   Slowly add to butter mixture, beating well.
