Perfect Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love a good oatmeal chocolate chip cookie, but in all the recipes I have tried I could never find one that was just right to me. So, I finally developed my own.  I think the real secret is in using both old fashioned and quick oats as well as regular chocolate chips and mini chocolate chips.  To me, these are the perfect Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.
