Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookies

family favorite oatmeal cookies

I make these cookies so often it is laughable. The entire family enjoys them. Even my husband, who doesn’t really care for cookies. In fact, I think he asks for them more than anyone.

These oatmeal cookies are not overly sweet and full of real food ingredients. The batter itself is pretty good, too.

I hope you enjoy them, too!

The go so fast, I usually double this recipe.
