Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yet another variant of my chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. it is better still. After playing with all oatmeal I think adding some flour is best. it adds a nice texture, holds the cookie together and is cheaper than the oatmeal.

This is a combination of the Toll House and Quaker Oats cookie recipe. Then just a couple substitutions to make it more flexible, starting from the toll house recipe substituting 2:1 oatmeal for half the flour, prepared oatmeal and oil for the eggs and butter.

This is a great way to use up old halloween candy bars cutting then up into chocolate chips making what I like to call Trick or Treat bars, as every cookie is a little of a surprise.

Makes about 5 dozen cookies.

Note: This recipe is vegan, depending on mixins.
