Cake Mix Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love recipes that I can throw together at the last minute and not have to worry if about it being too much work. These cookies have been a lifesaver for a last-minute party treat, a thank you gift for a neighbor, and to make my husband's coworkers day a little bit brighter.

What's even better about these cookies is that they are made with only 5 ingredients, most of which you probably already have in your house. You can vary the flavors if you want, but I love this one just the way it is. You {or your guests} can't even tell they were made with a cake mix! I love that in less than 10 minutes, you can have a batch of cookies in the oven!
