Double Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I am so afraid of losing this recipe that I am posting it here as a recipe and of course properly linking it back to the website. This recipe was so good, it comes across as a mix of crinkles and cookie. And apparently, Matt doesn’t know what a crinkle is. I need to get my hands on some powdered sugar and make him some 🙂
