My Favourite Chocolate Chip Cookie

Since we have been stuck in quarantine I have loved taking the time to bake with Theodore. Whenever I ask him what type of cookie he wants this is always the cookie that’s requested and they never last long around our home. This is a thin, chewy, oatmeal based chocolate chip cookie so if that is what you’re looking for then this recipe is the last one you’ll need.
