Simple Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies

You really can’t go wrong when it comes to chocolate chip cookies, the blend of oats along with gooey melted chocolate is such a classic combination which is so satisfying and a real crowd pleaser. These chunky cookies are the perfect cross between a flapjack and a cookie – chewy, crunchy and loaded with chunks of chocolate for a simple, satisfying sweet treat.

This fail proof cookie recipe is my go to when I want a quick, easy bake – they only require one bowl, minimal effort and are pretty much fail proof. Simply mix everything together, shape them, pop them in the oven and you have a delicious dessert in under 30 minutes. Adding ground almonds in to the mix alongside the oats helps to give these cookies an extra crunch which makes them so moreish.

These cookies are delicious alongside a cup of tea, hot chocolate or refreshing glass of nut milk. They even make a great alternative to granola when crumbled up on a nice cream bowl and in my opinion the fact that they’re predominantly oats means that they’re totally acceptable for an easy on the go breakfast too!
