Yup, yup. This is a super basic Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, with the chocolate chips swapped out for cinnamon chips, plus the addition of a secret spice.
Two weeks ago, I snatched a couple bags from the store to try in a new recipe and ended up with some extra cinnamon chips so I made these amazing cookies. These might become ‘our family cookie’…
1 kid likes chocolate chip cookies
1 kid likes oatmeal raisin cookies and will not eat chocolate chips (which makes me wonder how he and I are related!)
1 kid likes just about anything
1 kid likes to eat these cinnamon chips right out of the bag
That being said…this is a fantastic combination for everyone and we all really enjoyed these cookies! Upon first bite, you think they are going to taste like butterscotch cookies. But then the cinnamon hits full force and YUMMY!
This child is so crazy adorable. I *think* he has finally learned that he has to wait for the cookies to bake. That’s a tough lesson for a 2 year old. Here he was ‘counting’ the cookies, like his big brother had just been doing.
While I could not understand any of his ‘numbers,’ he was still adorable nonetheless. (He is following in his big brothers’ late-talker footsteps!)
