About a week ago I posted about some Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies I baked (you can see that post and recipe here). Well, I had a hankering to bake today, so I made this cookie recipe again…but this time, with a slight modification.
I added 1/2 cup of pretzels!
I can’t take credit for this idea whatsoever because I originally saw it when reading Lovin’ From the Oven. So smart!
What it does is add a little crunch (like a nut, but without the nut) to the cookie. And another bonus is that the pretzels add a little extra salt. So you get the sweet from the chocolate and the salt from the pretzel which is really nice.
I only added a 1/2 cup of pretzels, but you could add more than that. I was just being cautious since I’ve never tried adding pretzels before. In the future, I’d probably add a full cup instead. Also, I used tiny pretzel sticks broken up into pieces. You could use whatever pretzel shape you’d like or happen to have lying around your house.
I hope you enjoy these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip and Pretzel Cookies! And have a great weekend too!
