Oh-Oh-Oh...Oatmeal & Chocolate Chip Cookies

We found that amazing conch on the beach!!

Byron has been requesting these for sometime now, and whatever Byron wants he gets! Although he did have to wait a while for these! 

Oatmeal has never featured in my daily diet, it is far too healthy! So I can't say I've ever been an oatmeal cookie fan, why would I choose to eat a semi healthy cookie when I could go for a double choc cookie or something equally delicious?! 

That all changed when By and I took part time jobs at Subway when we were students.  We used to bake the cookies in store, and oh man when those Oatmeal & Raisin cookies were baking up the smell was to die for! Even though I'm not a raisin lover, those cookies were tasty enough to change my mind!!
However Byron is an avid raisin hater, amazing smell or not there was nothing that could tempt him to try those cookies! 

At the time he said he wished he could have eaten the oatmeal cookies, perhaps if one day I made them with chocolate chips he could indulge in some too...well that day was yesterday (5 years later! yes By gets what he wants, sometimes he just has to wait a little while!)

I found this little beaut of a recipe, and it definitely produced some yummy cookies...I would take these over oatmeal & raisin any day, as would Byron! 


  1. yummy! i definitely like oatmeal raisin but oatmeal chocolate chip sounds about 10000 times better! these cookies look amazing, have to put them on my must-try list :)

  2. Oooo these look scrummy, I don't like raisins so swapping them for chocolate is a perfect combination for me! Lovely shell too, it's huuuuge! Don't get one's like that here in England :(

  3. They look good! Oatmeal cookies have never really appealed to me but I might have to try these.
    Great cake stand too! :)

  4. wow that conch is amazing! You have to bring that one back to England :) The cookies look yummy too, oatmeal and choc chip - good combination

  5. I love oatmeal and raisin cookies. Oatmeal chocolate chip sounds even better. Love the photo - absolutely gorgeous!

  6. I love all things these are definitely up my alley. With the add in of choc chip, I bet these are an all round crowd pleaser!
