Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies


Damn fine all-in cookies.  These cookies seem flexible enough to handle just about any reasonable combination of extras. Mix it up with coconut, chocolate chips, seeds, nuts, dried fruit, or what ever else strikes your fancy. I've also done them vegan with oil and they turn out great. They will stay soft and chewy for a week if you can get them to last that long.
