Happy Friday morning, everyone!

It’s been a really busy week- I’ve been running around like a madwoman trying to get all my recipes made and pictures taken, in anticipation of several super fun trips I have coming up 😀  It’s been crazy and I’m a little stressed, but I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunities!

And I couldn’t be more excited to share this recipe with you today.  This is one that I have been making regularly, for the last several years.  This is one that my picky youngest son actually eats!!!  In fact, he doesn’t just eat it, he LOVES it, and asks for it often.  I’m so happy to be able to treat him to something homemade, especially when it makes him so happy.

These chocolate chip cookie cups are slightly crisp on the outside, and gooey and melt-y on the inside.  Just how a chocolate chip cookie should be, in my opinion.  The flavor is butter-y and comforting, with a caramel-sweetness from the brown sugar and a warm vanilla back note.  Plus they’re absolutely loaded with chocolate chips.  My whole family adores them.

And, they are made with whole grains like whole wheat flour and rolled oats.  So that means they’re healthy!  Right???

Every few weeks, I make a big batch of dough, scoop out balls onto baking sheets, and then freeze them and pop them into zip-top bags.  Then, whenever the urge strikes, I get out the ol’ mini-muffin pan and bake up a few, IN THE MICROWAVE!  Yep- you heard right, these babies bake up in a flash, so you can has warm, freshly baked cookie cups at a moment’s notice.
