Oatmeal Cookies with Cinnamon Chips and Walnuts
I’ve been hearing about cinnamon chips for awhile thanks to Jenny at Picky Palate. I looked for months but never found them. Last week I was in a random grocery store and saw them on the shelf. I scooped up a couple of bags and envisioned oatmeal, walnut and cinnamon chip cookies. My kids and I started baking once we got home. I adapted the recipe from the back of the cinnamon chip bag. The cookies smelled so good while they were baking and they tasted amazing fresh from the oven – I loved them dipped in ice cold milk. Not only were these cookies really good to eat they were also easy to make. This recipe makes a small batch of cookies, perfect for a family of four. I am looking forward to more tasty treats using these little cinnamon chips.
