First off I want to say THANKS to all of you who are visiting my recipe for Crunchy Outside, Chewy Inside Oatmeal cookies that I posted almost 8 years ago! I mention the 8 years ago part because I want to apologize for how terrible the photo looks. Let me just assure you that these cookies TASTE delicious despite what they look like in the photo. Now, lets get on to the original post:
Today I was playing around with my Healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe and ended up with this less healthy, but super yummy cookie. It has a crisp, crunchy outside (thanks to the olive oil addition) and a chewy texture inside.
Crunchy Outside, Chewy Inside Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

3/4 tsp. salt

(You can also add 1 tsp vanilla – I didn’t add it in this recipe because I was baking them at my sister’s house and couldn’t find her vanilla!)
