Chewy chocolate oatmeal cookies recipe from The Portobellas blog

 

chewy chocolate oatmeal cookies

I made these chewy chocolate oatmeal cookies this afternoon from a recipe posted on the the porto bellas blog.

I was planning to do these 2 weeks ago for my hubby, but time flew so fast I never had the chance to bake them.

My son and hubby participated during the baking process and were the first to eat them. He looks very happy in these pictures but once we removed him from the kitchen, he started screaming and crying. Sorry, I didn’t take a picture of him crying because I was too busy trying to calm him down ๐Ÿ˜‰

In this picture, you can see how much our little man enjoyed it!

These are the little moments I enjoy the most and are so important to me

These cookies turned out delicious, I will bring these tomorrow at my parents house for New Yearโ€™s Eve. We added red sprinkles, they look festiveย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hope you try them and enjoy them as much as we do!

They were so easy to prepare, only a couple of steps and ingredients were required.ย  I took pictures of some of the steps I followed from their post for you in case you will like to try them, but please make sure to copy the recipe and directions from the the porto bellas blog

    That’s the first time I’ve seen your son…he is a doll!!! My littlest one wants to help in the kitchen with everything because he sees his older siblings cooking. I usually have to kick him out eventually so things don’t get too chaotic and boy does he get mad! During the week when the kids are at school he gets to “help” me a bit more! Have fun tomorrow, those cookies look great! Melissa
