Why freeze oatmeal chocolate cookie dough.
Making a large batch of these delicious cookies is always a good idea. You can roll the dough into balls and freeze for future use like when unexpected guest come and visit.
Thaw the cookie dough to room temperature first when you are ready to bake. Take the dough balls out of the freezer and set them on parchment paper to thaw for about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Freezing or chilling cookie dough helps control the spread when baking. Because the butter in the dough is still in solid form therefore the cookie bakes in a nice round shape.

Chewy and crunchy in texture because of the whole rolled oats and walnuts. This is an experience that keeps it apart from other cookie recipes. Walnuts are of course optional.
Buttery and tasty – is what the brown sugar and butter gives these cookies. Unlike regular granulated white sugar, brown sugar guarantees flavorful baked cookies.

Tips for better results
Do not overbake – to ensure that you will have soft and chewy cakes!
Flour should be measured correctly. This is one reason I invested in a weigh scale, it helps me accurately measure ingredients like flour, baking powder, etc. You can also use a measuring cup and then scoop and level the flour with a spatula.
Check expiration of baking powder or baking soda. I usually get emails of baking fails and the most common reason is the leaving agents they used are past their expiration.
The secret ingredient is always LOVE
