Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies – chewy and packed with goodies! These oatmeal cookies are bound to be a hit!
TGIF, my peeps!
The squirrel family saga continues. Remember the mad momma squirrel that would yell at me every time I passed her tree home? Well, appears that she had a very good reason. She was protecting her little babies! Yes, there are baby squirrels in our backyard tree! Absolutely adorable! So adorable in fact, that it makes you want to take them home, pet and keep them! (Hubby is just shaking his head right now)
Every morning they venture out of their tree to nibble on leaves and bark. They don’t go too far. I have not seen them leave the tree yet. The baby squirrels love to peek out of the hole with their tiny heads. Many times you see two heads sticking out. I was able to get quite close to them and I snap some pics with my phone. Here is one. Click on the picture to make it larger.
When I was in high-school and beginning of college, I wrote a few children’s stories. Animals were always perfect for the adorable little characters. These little fellas reminded me of this and now I am thinking I should try and write a story for my kiddos with the squirrels as the main characters. It would be fun and I think they would love it! My kids and the baby squirrels. 🙂
Beautiful nature aside, let’s talk cookies. Cookies packed with goodness. We are talking oats, raisins and chocolate chips. I know some people don’t like raisins in their cookies. Well, I happen to love them. The texture and the sweetness. Pair it with chocolate and wrap it all up in an oatmeal cookie dough and there is no stopping after one cookie!
They are thick and chewy and oh-so-delicious, especially still slightly warm!
This recipe makes a perfect batch to satisfy your cravings and your sweet tooth.
I suggest you make them this weekend.
Have a fabulous weekend!!!
