Colossal Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I figure if you add something healthy into something a little decadent it all balances out. Well, that's just what I tried to do with these colossal Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies. I added plenty of oatmeal into each cookie so I felt less guilty enjoying one.  One of these giant cookies is all you need because they are completely satisfying.  I especially loved the tender, moist texture of these giant cookies and they were definitely delicious.   I can't wait to experiment with more oatmeal and cake mix.

1 box yellow cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 canola oil
2/3 cup milk
3 1/2 cups old fashioned dry oats
12oz bag of mini chocolate chips

Use an electric mixer to combine the cake mix, eggs, oil and milk.  Then use a wooden spoon to fold in the dry oats and chocolate chips.  To make these cookies colossal size I used an ice cream scoop to help measure them out.   Spray baking sheet with non-stick spray and bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-17 minutes or until the edges are brown and the tops are golden.  Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet to set up.  Makes 18 colossal sized cookies.
