Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Texture
The texture of these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are slightly chewy, in the best way, from the rolled oats, and have an ever so slight crisp on the edges for the perfect cookie texture!
The right kind of Oats to use
For this recipe you will want to be sure that you use rolled oats and no other kind of oats! The chewy texture of the rolled oats makes these cookies and any other kind of oats will not yield proper cookies.
Topping the cookies
Now I’m not going to say you have to top your classic oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with flaky sea salt…. but like, you *have* to. That is all… just trust me.
How to store classic oatmeal chocolate chip cookies
You’ll want to store these cookies for up to 4 days in an airtight container at room temperature. They are best enjoyed, however, within the first 2 days… especially when fresh and warm! 🙂
