I think I made the perfect batch of oatmeal cookies ever to be made – by me. They were perfectly chewy, not too sweet, just the right amount of mini chocolate chips and did I mention soft and chewy? This is my second batch I made this week. In fact, I purposely made small batches so I wouldn’t eat them all. But they were so good, I made them again. Go figure! My daughter and husband helped of course. And my daughter’s little friends came over and gobbled them right up.
For this recipe, I cut the sugar in half and can’t imagine them being any sweeter because the chocolate chips give it enough sweetness on their own. Also, instead of using all white flour, I used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose. And for the chocolate chips, I used just a small amount of mini chocolate chips as to not overwhelm the oatmeal cookie, if you know what I mean.

Then to make it into a fun Halloween themed cookie, I decided to add some Sunspire Sundrops dye-free candy coated chocolates on top. Not only do I think these cookies would be the perfect treat for Halloween parties, but also as a fun after school or lunchbox snack as well!
