These Honey Roasted Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies are chock full of oatmeal, honey roasted peanuts, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and a hint of cinnamon.
Today is special day.
Today my husband and I have been married for 15 years!
The recipe I have for you today is for Honey Roasted Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies, and this recipe is a special one for my husband and me. It was these cookies that I sent to my husband over Christmas break just a month after we met, before our first date.
He tried them, and he fell in love.
With the cookies and with me. 🙂
We had our first date the first week back to school after Christmas break and the rest is history!
These cookies were originally called “Heart Oatmeal Cookies”, because you were supposed to press them into a heart shaped cookie cutter. I rarely take the time to do that. My husband and I lovingly call them “The Cookies”. Put the emphasis on the “The” and we both know what cookies we are talking about.
But for you, I named them Honey Roasted Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies, because they are full of honey roasted peanuts and three types of chocolate, which makes them a bit unique. They also have a hint of cinnamon.
All of those flavors together give a special taste that is really unlike any other cookie we make.
And these cookies are so hearty. When they are in the house, I end up eating one for breakfast and it keeps me satisfied until lunch! With the oatmeal and peanuts, they really do fill you up!
I joke with Maddie that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, with these cookies being the proof. And we’ve told her she’s not allowed to make cookies for a guy until she is much, much older.
And if you decide to make these for someone special…you can’t say I haven’t warned you.
