Crisp Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites

These little bite-sized Crisp Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites are seriously going to punch self-restraint in the face.

That’s the problem with bite-sized cookies: you eat, and you eat, and you eat, then pretty soon your belly starts to resemble a round cookie itself. 

By then it’s too late. Yup, too late for any regrets, so you might as well take a swig of coffee (or milk) and have a few more.  And that’s how it went in my home this past weekend—cookies and plumbers.

Yup, plumbers. I had to feed them since I had them out on a Sunday morning to dry out the garage and upstairs. Apparently, some flap on a pipe broke and a half hour later the garage gave way to a hot, humid, water logged floor—the only thing water damaged thus far—lots of my wood boards that I store in the garage for shooting. Wah!!

The good news – I get to buy  more. The bad news – I have to buy more. So until the garage is dried out, the pictures are going to be spare around here. Thankfully all this “spareness” will subside by the end of the week.

    Oh no, your beautiful boards! I’m so sorry. I bet you’ll get even better ones now though, so that’s good.
    These cookies are something that my mom would love. I have to make them for her, they’re so adorable! I hope your plumbing issues get worked out okay!

    Oh no! So sorry to hear about the boards and your garage! Sounds like the perfect situation for mini cookies. They are absolutely adorable, and, come on, they have oats in the, they’re basically healthy right? (That’s what I’ll tell myself as I eat 10…)

    I’d love to turn these cookies into an ice cream sandwich! Sorry about the plumbing issues, those are the worst! And your wood boards.. I can’t even imagine.

    It’s so true, I tend to eat more cookies when they’re bite-sized! But I would still eat a handful of these without any regrets. That’s so sweet of you to bake cookies for the plumbers! I usually just offer them glasses of water and fruit…

    Noooo, not the photo boards!! I’m sure you will find great new ideas for fun board concepts when you hit the hardware store – but it’s so hard to see a bright side when something so crumby happens!! These cookies are definitely not crumby at all! i would eat my weight in cookie feelings with these!

    Oh no! Not the boards! How stressful! Our hot water tank went a few months back and it was such a nightmare, I had to loose a few boards and back drops too! I think I need to make these cookies just to deal with that memory plus they look to die for!

    Oh no! Plumbing and ruined boards all in the same sentence! Did you cry? I would’ve been devastated. At least there were cookies. Cookies make everything better 😉
    Good luck with your new boards! I’m sure you’ll find even better ones. Sometimes, fate has it that bad things happen to open the door for better things.
    And I’m making these cookies this weekend! Thank you for the recipe Xx

    Cookies came out under cooked and spread way too much. Def didn’t look like the picture.

    Oh NOOO for your boards!!! I’m so sad to hear that :(:( Hope the new ones are even better than the old. And these cookies are calling my name! They look like everything I want my oatmeal cookies to be — craggy and chewy and crispy on the edges. I’ve been dreaming about them ever since I saw these on Pinterest. So amazing, Naomi!
