MEGA CHOC CHIP OATMEAL BISCUITS

These biscuits are wonderful.  They taste fantastic and they are a little bit chewy and a little bit crunchy.  The also have rolled oats in them so they are practically a health food (*wink*).  This recipe makes around 26-28 biscuits but if you don't need that many, just halve the recipe.  If you prefer a crisper biscuit (rather than chewy in the middle) just cook them a few minutes longer until they are a bit more brown all over.
