Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies – Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.

I will admit it, I fell off the wagon a bit last month. Between suffering another bout of tendonitis and getting sick, I was just not feeling it. Running wasn’t happening and I just wanted to eat junk food all the time. So I decided that the only answer to that was to bake.. COOKIES! I opened Run Fast. Eat Slow. by Elyse Kopecky & Shalane Flanagan and flipped right to the page – Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. YUM!

The recipe is incredibly easy as I already had all of the ingredients in my pantry. All you need is old-fashioned rolled oats, whole wheat pastry flour, chocolate chips, baking powder, baking soda, salt, butter, sugar and vanilla. Then mix it all together and bake – I didn’t even use an electronic mixer!

Tip: Try the milk chocolate chips from Whole Foods, they are TO DIE FOR.

If you haven’t bought this book yet, I still highly recommend it. There are so many recipes to try!
