pam's "oatmeal" cookies

okay so i have to confess i hate oatmeal cookies...until of course, pam hurst gives me one and i have to ask multiple times about the ingredients, insistent upon the fact that there is no way that there is oatmeal in the cookies...there is [& lots of it]. see the great recipe below! the recipe yields about 3 dozen cookies which is awesome. I also just eye ball the chocolate chips so that may make it a little bit more.

PS Sorry the photo sort of stinks of these cookies...they are eaten WAY too quickly in our house to capture the true essence of them!  After all since these are oatmeal, I've been considering them a breakfast food.

by the way, don't you love "Pamma" as Pam's grandma name?! I do!
