The cookies you'll start eating before they go into the oven

{ chocolate hazelnut and oat cakey cookies }

If your cookie kind is the cakey kind, you are gonna love these. They are soft, moist, packed with flavour and, hence, irresistible. Don't forget to offer some - cookies are meant to be shared!

Last Christmas, I decided to make a batch of cookies to give as a gift to everybody in the family.

The first batch didn't last long.

First, because the ingredients and the batter are amazing and you'll feel like eating it as a dessert without baking. Second, because the freshly baked cookies are just irresistible! My brothers, my parents and I liked them too much, so I had to make another three batches to fulfill my need for gifts!
