Yes, another cake.
But at the same time, no, it’s a cookie.
This recipe is for a gigantic oatmeal cookie that comes in the form of a cake. Unlike a cake, the texture is pretty dense and chewy. And unlike a cookie, you get to eat a whole big slice with a fork.
It’s a 2 for 1 deal… everyone loves a good deal.
Plus, aren’t there always times in ones life where all they want is a gigantic oatmeal cookie?
You had a rough day at work, you bombed your test at school, you came home to find that you’re out of chocolate chips.
What’s the solution? A big ol’ slice of cookie.
Trust me, it works.
And if the thought of cake and cookies (at the same time, no less!) didn’t already convice you to make this, there’s also the part about it being pretty healthy.
Much healthier, that is, than almost any cake or cookie you were going to eat. Now it’s a 3 for 1 deal, huh?
