First of all, I apologize for the lack of food posts on here. We really have been eating, just not taking pictures of it! However, I trust this amazing cookie recipe will make up for it!
For quite some time I’ve been searching for just the perfect Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookie. I have a great recipe for a thinner, crisp and buttery type, but I wanted a kind like Bob’s Red Mill makes; thick and chewy – almost like a snack and yet with the perfect hint of sweetness.
When my friend Amy mentioned on Facebook that she was eating a chewing oatmeal cookie she had just made, I wondered if she had found the perfect recipe – and after trying it for myself, I must say she has!
1 cup (2 sticks butter)
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups flour (I used 1 cups of white and 2 cup of whole wheat)
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 package (6 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, if desired
Cream butter and sugars, add eggs, and beat well. Stir in vanilla. Combine dry ingredients and mix into liquid. mixing thoroughly. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
The dough is stiff, so don’t be afraid to mix it with your hands!
With tablespoon, pack dough into 1/4 cup measuring cup. Space nine cookies evenly per pan; shape cookies with hands. Bake on greased cookie sheets at 350 degrees F. for 10-12 minutes, or until just done around the edges. Let cool on pans a few minutes before transferring to wire.
Variation: Replace chocolate chips with raisins, and add cinnamon and nutmeg to taste!
Pour yourselves a glass of milk and enjoy!
