So, there I was standing in the pantry, feeling like I needed a cookie. Then I saw the oats and thought, hey, I’ll make some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Then I saw the graham crackers and I thought, nope. Forget the oats. I’m grinding up some graham crackers and turning them into cookies. A cracker cookie! A delicious, chocolate filled graham cracker cookie that makes me weep with joy.

So, that’s how these happened. Now you know.

The texture is a bit different from your average cookie and the flavor really does shout graham crackers if you ask me. The melty chocolate chips are optional, except not, because chocolate.

Chocolate Chip Graham Cracker Cookies – a cracker cookie? Yep, and it’s delicious!

Just wait until you see what I do to this cookie base next time. I have grand plans. Oh, do I have grand plans. UPDATED: I turned these into s’mores cookies!
