Triple Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

triple chocolate oatmeal cookies

Ahh, oatmeal cookies. I wish I had a cute little story of a childhood filled with memories of my grandma baking warm and soft oatmeal cookies, but I don’t. My grandmother made fried chicken, while another grandmother made adobo. There were no oatmeal cookies in my Filipino childhood.


There are oatmeal cookies in my adulthood.

In fact, I associate oatmeal cookies with my first year of living by myself, ten years ago. And no, I didn’t bake them either. I regularly bought oatmeal cookies at… Starbucks.
