Some recipes have a really great story and some recipes I just made because I couldn’t get those flavors out of my head. You ever have days like that? Where if you don’t put flavor a and flavor b together someone might get hurt? That’s how these cookies were born. It’s really a benefit to society,  really. No people were harmed in the experimentation of this cookie. Which I feel are pretty close to a scotchie {any scotchie experts give a holler if you know for sure!} but with all the leftover baking chips we had from the roomie’s Christmas goodie making extravaganza and oatmeal cookies on the brain I had to put the two flavors together and give my tastebuds what they’d been craving!

The result were these oatmeal cookies as big as my palm and perfectly crunchy. If you like a soft and chewy oatmeal cookie you’ll have to find that elsewhere because these are really similar to a crispy gingersnap. Perfect dunked into a glass of milk or hot chocolate or as a late night snack or for breakfast. Oats are a breakfast food, right?

You CAN of course make them a little smaller and share the wealth but who would want to go and do a thing like that? The whole recipe makes an even dozen in the large cookies but you could probably get 2 dozen if you used a smaller cookie scoop. But as I always say go giant cookie or go home!
