Whole wheat oatmeal chocolate chip cookies that are buttery, chewy, and full of sturdy oats and texture, yes please!

If you know my track record, you know I can only go so long without giving you another chocolate chip cookie recipe to try.

I am utterly shocked and dismayed I haven’t posted about these cookies. They’ve been part of my life for a couple of years now and I’m racking my brain trying to figure out how they have been preempted by so many others.

Not that I don’t absolutely adore all of the other cookies on here (if I didn’t, I wouldn’t have posted about them), but these cookies are so delicious. So, so, so…(a million times so)…delicious.

Here’s the deal, even though they are made with 100% white whole wheat flour and oats, that’s not why I make them. I make them because they may quite possibly be some of the most delicious chocolate chip oatmeal cookies ever (next to these and these of course).

Buttery, chewy, full of sturdy oats and texture, these cookies are absolutely dreamy. Plus they come from one of the most talented home cooks I know (Lesli, don’t you dare roll your eyes!).

They are definitely one of my favorite go-to cookie recipes.

Oh, and as if you needed another reason to run to your kitchen and make these: they freeze (already baked) amazingly well and pull out of the freezer still slightly soft, which makes them the perfect two sides to a creamy, dreamy ice cream sandwich.

Please, please don’t tell me if and when you make them. I just may show up at your door begging for one (or six).
