Oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies

Welcome to this months Sweet and Simple bake. This is a group where we all bake a recipe supplied by the lovely Rosie of Baking Cakes Galore and Maria of The Goddess's Kitchen and post it on the same day. Head over to the Sweet and Simple Bakes blog to get more info and see the round-ups of previous months cakes and biscuits.

I won't reproduce the recipe as I followed it pretty closely, and it can be found here.

I actually made these much earlier in the month, around the time when I was baking to raise money for Comic Relief and took them into work at about the same time as these butterfly cakes and this gingerbread. They went down well, but to be honest I think I must have overcooked them slightly. They weren't burnt or anything, but they were mostly crunch and very little chew. I don't think I'd make them again, not because there was anything wrong with them but just because there are so many other cookie recipes out there for me to try - why stick with mediocre (but perfectly acceptable) when there could be a stellar recipe out there, just the next flick of the cookery book page, waiting for me to try it out.... Anyhow, your taste might differ to mine, so don't be put off making them - the recipe works well, I just wasn't overwhelmed. My colleagues liked them, but preferred the cake.... well, who wouldn't prefer cake really!
PS I promise I did put the specified amount of chocolate into them, it's just hiding, that's why you can't see it in the picture!!!
