Freezer-friendly Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

The fastest way to grab my girls attention is by saying the word cookie.  That’s right, I think this might be the only word I never need to say more than once in my house at any given moment no matter where they are and they start running.  It’s AMAZING! I keep telling Kinley when they grow up, I”m going to their house to break their stuff, eat all their cookies, make a huge mess, say I’m bored and then just leave:)  But until then, I found a pretty awesome recipe for freezer friendly treats that will gain a few brownie points from your littles.  Just pop a few of these yummy treats in the oven and viola your set!
