Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Written by Roar Elias

If you have been looking around for an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe, you would probably have found that most of them traditionally will include raisins in the recipe. On the whole, raisins and oatmeal just go hand in hand. However, it's not wrong to break a certain tradition. So many good things have come out from the kitchen by adding something different or changing a few things around. This is how we create classic recipes.

So, something like an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe may not sound like the done thing for those who have strict ideas about what goes with this type of cookie, but then you are just missing so much.

Now, chocolate chip cookies are unique because they can be made in so many different ways in order to experience different flavors and textures. Some are soft in the center and will just melt in your mouth and others will have much more of a crisper texture to them. Here, we go one step further by adding different chocolate instead of just adding a bag of chocolate chips. This just gives the recipe that extra lift.

Here is a oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe that I'm sure you won't be able to resist.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F / 180 degrees C and adjust oven racks so they are placed evenly in the oven. Grease the baking trays.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl and set this aside.
  3. Cream the butter with the sugar until the mixture is pale in color. Now you can add the eggs gradually with the vanilla extract and mix until everything is well combined.
  4. Slowly add the dry ingredients you had mixed together and combine this mixture, working it with your hands until it forms dough. Don't overmix it. Once it has formed dough, then you have done your job.
  5. Stir in the oats along with the chocolate chips and make sure they are evenly distributed.
  6. Remember to weigh each cookie so that they cook evenly. They should be weighing about 2 oz. each. Roll the cookies into a ball and flatten them a little. Space them 2 inches apart on the baking tray.
  7. Bake your cookies between 12-14 minutes. Half way through make sure you rotate the baking pans, swapping them between the oven racks so you get the best heat distribution. When they are soft in the center, but set on the edges of the cookie then you know they are ready and you can cool them on a wire rack.

This is probably a nice thing to have available during the Christmas holidays. They always look so good in a nice big jar. You should probably be warned that the cookies will start to vanish in no time so just make a good helping otherwise you will find yourself in the kitchen more than you had planned.
