Stress Baking While Social Distancing: Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you feel just “meh” about oatmeal raisin cookies, I feel you. Up until I had this particular cookie I’m about to expound upon in this post, I wasn’t super enthused about them either. I felt that if I was going to eat something indulgent and sweet, the last thing I wanted was oatmeal, because, well…it seems so healthy.


Yes, it has oatmeal, and yes, it has raisins, but it also has *chocolate chips*, which, apparently, are the missing link in the universal cookie puzzle.

You will not be able to stop after just one.



You’ll lose your damn mind over these, and/or pass out from sheer ecstasy, while eating this oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookie. Trust me — that’s a good thing.
