If you have been looking around for an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe, you would probably have found that most of them traditionally will include raisins in the recipe.

So many good things have come out from the kitchen by adding something different or changing a few things around. This is how we create classic recipes.
So, something like an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe may not sound like the done thing for those who have strict ideas about what goes with this type of cookie, but then you are just missing so much.

Some are soft in the center and will just melt in your mouth and others will have much more of a crisper texture to them. Here, we go one step further by adding different chocolate instead of just adding a bag of chocolate chips. This just gives the recipe that extra lift.
Here is a oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe that I'm sure you won't be able to resist.
This is probably a nice thing to have available during the Christmas holidays. They always look so good in a nice big jar. You should probably be warned that the cookies will start to vanish in no time so just make a good helping otherwise you will find yourself in the kitchen more than you had planned.
The history of chocolate chip cookies is maybe a bit off topic, but is definitely an interesting read.
