Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

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.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
  • 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
  1. Preheat the oven to 350º.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Add in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

I hope you enjoy these!  Be sure to come back and let me know what you think!  🙂
