I have to admit that this is the first time that I have made Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies. Man alive, I wish I had made them earlier. These were soooo soft and chewy. I have already added these to my favorite recipes in the Paprika app on my iPad.
Do you have the Paprika app? If not, you really need to check it out. I absolutely LOVE it! It lets me sync all my recipes between my iPhone, iPad and my MacBook. I use my iPad in the kitchen almost every time I cook or bake. I am always referring to the Paprika app on my iPhone when I am at the grocery store and needing to check and see what ingredients I need for a certain recipe. My only complaint is that they don’t have a Windows friendly version that I can use with my desktop computer.
Ok, back to the cookies. I was really expecting the kids to turn their noses up at these because they aren’t real fond of anything related to oatmeal. I am happy to report that I was wrong in my thinking. They loved them and they were gone within a few hours!
I found the original recipe here, but as usual I made a few little changes. I am always trying to make some treats a little more healthy for my family. Yes, I know these are not “healthy” but I did make them a little better than the original recipe. 😉 For instance, I cut down the sugar, used cake flour rather than all-purpose, etc. I put my recipe below, but you are welcome to check out and use the original recipe I linked above.
- 1 stick butter, softened
- ½ cup dark brown sugar
- ¼ cup light brown sugar
- ¼ cup white sugar
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 1 egg + 1 yolk
- 1 T. cornstarch
- 1 tsp. coarse sea salt
- ¼ tsp. baking soda
- 1¼ cups cake flour
- ¾ cup oatmeal
- 1½ cups chocolate chips
- Preheat the oven to 350º.
- In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Add in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the cornstarch, sea salt, baking soda, flour, and oatmeal. Add into the butter mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips.
- Scoop about 2 T. of dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 9-10 minutes. The edges should be lightly golden and the centers just set. Let cool for 2 minutes on the pan before transferring off to cool completely.
- Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
I hope you enjoy these! Be sure to come back and let me know what you think! 🙂
