When I was pregnant with my first child, I remember stocking up on oatmeal during a sale then later wondering what in the world I was going to make with 10 packages of oatmeal. Luckily for me, the packages had a recipe on the back for oatmeal cookies. The addition of chocolate chips made them even better; perfect for a pregnant woman craving an oatmeal cookie! Since my first child celebrated his 10th birthday yesterday, I think it's only fitting to share this recipe today.
