Chewy Choc-Oat Chip Cookies

These are the perfect crowd-pleasing cookies with triple chocolate, old fashioned oats, and a chewy bite.

These are no ordinary chocolate chip cookies. Think of them as a Chocolate Chip-Oatmeal crossover!

I typically like to stick to classic Chocolate Chip Cookies (I recommend Joanna Gaines' Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe from Magnolia Table Cookbook Volume 1!), but over the past few years, I've started to make this elevated recipe.

Have you ever heard of the $250 Neiman Marcus Cookie Recipe? This recipe is almost identical to that one, but I made a few slight changes! For example, the OG recipe calls for Dark Brown Sugar, but I prefer light. I also omit the nuts, don't always blend the oats, and I use 3 different types of chocolate!

The first time I tried this cookie was at Zach's house. His Mom's close friend, lovingly known to us as "Cookie Kim," always brought over the most incredible cookies. Seriously - we would fight for these cookies! I finally asked her for her recipe, and she let me know that she uses the Neiman Marcus cookie recipe that's been floating around online for years! (She also mentioned she only pulses the oats, rather than finely grinding them).

Ever since those many nights we spent devouring cookies at the McGowan's, I've been determined to keep making them on my own, creating slight variations along the way. Mine are still not nearly as good as Cookie Kim's, but practice makes perfect, right?! (Thanks Cookie Kim! We love you!)

You can find the original recipe that I have adapted from right here.
