Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie for One

How’s it going? I just wanted to stop in really quick to say hello and share an update to my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe.

I have to confess, every time I make a ‘real’ batch of cookies I end up eating 6 cookies worth of batter and way way waaaaaaaayyy too many fresh cookies out of the oven. Finally the cookie police busted in my door one day and stopped me.


So, now I am forced to make mini-batches to keep myself out of cookie prison. It’s for the best. You can double this recipe if you want more than two cookies and it’s still a lot less calorie damage than a whole batch!

My OG oatmeal cookie for breakfast recipe is super easy and HEALTHY! But I added chocolate chips this time so it’s not exactly the ideal breakfast with that addition – but it’s so much better Winking smile

    Guilty of doing the same – sampling the batter, licking the bowl, taste testing a couple…I’ve already eaten half a recipe by teatime!

    And that’s why I don’t bake! My problem is that my husband does, and who can resist the question, “Do you want to make some brownies?” And this is also why I married him

    I love oatmeal cookies. My MIL makes them with coconut and dark choc. They are so good. Also, Not trying to be the Gluten Police but unless labeled *most* Instant oats contain trace amounts of Gluten.

    My husband and I are constantly wanting to make small batch cookies/cakes/desserts because, like you, the more we make the more we eat! It’s like, if it’s there, it’s calling my name. If it’s not there, I’m good. #selfcontrolissues
