My son’s favorite cookies of all time are these chocolate chip oatmeal cookies that I’ve talked about before. As soon as the cookie jar is emptied from one batch, he’s immediately asking if we can make more. I have to agree with him, they are some of the best cookies I’ve ever tasted.

Well, the other day I wanted to make them, but with a little twist.

I was craving chocolate.

I was craving a big mocha from Starbucks.

Since there isn’t a Starbucks close by that I could just hop in the car and visit lickity split to end that craving, I decided I’d make Little Buddy’s cookies with a few additional ingredients to feed my craving, too.

I’ll admit, I was nervous that he wouldn’t like them. He’s pretty serious when it comes to his cookies.

But in the name of adventure, in the name of expanding his cookie-tasting horizons, and in the name of feeding Mama’s chocolate cravings – I made them.

And he loves them.

Here’s how I make them.

I guess the moral to this recipe (if there is such a thing), is that every once in a while it is okay to fiddle with a favorite. You never know, it might just become a new one.

Hope you enjoy it.

  1. These are going on my holiday baking list. Chocolate and more chocolate, tis the season 🙂 Fun chatting with you on the stage today at the BlogHer writers conference!

  2. A boy who knows a good cookie! They sound delicious. My husband doesn’t drink coffee but loves anything coffee flavored. Go figure! Can’t wait to try these!!

  3. I just made these last night and they were fantastic! I love the texture from the oats. Thanks for the great recipe!

    1. Thanks so much for letting me know, Amanda. We love these cookies and I haven’t made them in the last little while. You just bumped them up in my mind as a must-make for Halloween! 🙂

    1. Sarah, I have corrected the recipe. It actually makes 36 cookies, not 12. Thanks for catching that.
