Chocolate Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Cookies

chocolate oatmeal cookieNext month will be the 3 year anniversary of my very first Jen’s Favorite Cookies blog post.  *bow*

3 years of cookie recipes.  This recipe here is my 82nd cookie recipe.  Wowza.

I used to worry that I would run out of ideas for new cookies, but lately I have realized just exactly how infinite the possibilities are.  In fact, there are products and ingredients out there that I have never even used.

Cinnamon chips being just one example.  This is my first recipe using cinnamon chips, because this is my first time ever purchasing them.  I guess I just never had a reason before.

But, reason schmeason.  They were on sale and I picked some up and decided I would figure out how to use them later.

Of course, my first thought was about my favorite classic Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.  But just using cinnamon chips in place of chocolate chips seemed a little… boring.

And the last thing I want to be is boring.

Adding cinnamon chips to a chocolate cookie was an idea that spoke to me.  Better yet, adding cinnamon chips to a chocolate oatmeal cookie… well, I think we have a winner.

And better than that… it gives me some ideas about how to celebrate my upcoming 3-year blog-iversary.

      Holy crap, talk about a major oversight! I think I used 3-4 T of unsweetened cocoa powder. I’ll get that fixed right away. Thanks!

    I didn’t even know there were cinnamon chips! What a great idea! I love cinnamon, so I know I’ll love these. And terrific cookie. Super flavor – thanks for the recipe.

    I love chocolate and cinnamon together so of course why not add the other great ingredient….chocolate. Great idea. I can’t wait to try this. I saw you over at Katherine’s Corner for Favorite Things.

    Good base recipe. Next time I’d do half cinnamon chips and half chocolate chips and add a tbsp of good quality cinnamon to the dough. Thanks for the recipe! 🙂

    I am so going to try these! Chocolate and oatmeal…ah! But I’m going to use peanut butter chips. It wouldn’t let me give the recipe more than 3 stars. Odd…

    I found this recipe the day before I was planning to.go grocery shopping and it sounded sinple and delicious. So while I was out at the store I decided to pick up some cinnamon chips. After checking out getting my groceries I stopped at a different store and took a lot lomger than expected, when I finally made it back to the car my cinnamon chips were completely melted. I ended up with more of a cinnamon blob.
