The Best Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Fuel’s Cafe, in the River North district of Denver, made the best chocolate chip oatmeal cookies ever. So, the day they closed their doors we were beyond dismayed. Their cookies were chewy, (healthier?) decadence!

When we discovered that the 5280 Magazine had published the Fuel’s chocolate chip oatmeal cookies recipe, we were overjoyed. We share this with you.
