Double Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies

I love a good cake mix cookie.  I've tried several recipes and am always willing to try one more.

I was tickled to see this simple recipe at Artsy-Fartsy Mama, but I adapted it with just a few changes. 

They turned out wonderfully.  I made them to put in the freezer so when I need a plateful of goodies to take to someone for the holidays, I am ready, set to go!

I always stock up on cake mixes when they're on sale. Was shocked when I didn't have a yellow cake mix on hand, so I used chocolate.  LOVED these!

You could add coconut, coffee or toffee for other 'flavor bursts'.
