Food for Thought: Chocolate Almond Oatmeal Cookies

Baking in my grandma’s kitchen.

Baking has been a constant thread in my life. I remember baking with my grandmother and my mom, learning all their tips and tricks. My dad of course was always ready willing and able to be the official taste tester. I love baking so much I went to college and got a degree in baking & pastry arts.

This recipe for chocolate almond oatmeal cookies was originally from my grandmother, was passed down to my mom, and then to me. We have tweaked it a little over the years, and it is still as tasty as I remember from my childhood. It is one of the cookies that is requested for every holiday and whenever I make or eat them it brings back happy holiday memories.

The best part is watching my friends and loved ones enjoy the things I bake for them. The recipe is quick to put together and can easily be doubled. So… let’ go make some Chocolate Almond Oatmeal Cookies!
