Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

oatmeal chocolate chip cookie batter

I came up with this recipe back in high school and decided it was time to whip it out again. It’s very simple and takes about 10 minutes to make the dough. Depending on how many cookie sheets you can fit in your oven at once, the whole process will cost you roughly 1 hour (not bad in baking world). With hundreds of oatmeal cookie recipes in the universe, I fancy this one for its crunchy consistency and bold flavours; I prefer firm oatmeal cookies over chewy. I’ve never tried this dough with raisins but I have a feeling they would work just as well, if that’s your thing.

Let’s go to cookie town.

Chocolate Chipz

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter (melted)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla (do not omit)
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 cups quick oats
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Mix the first 6 ingredients in a separate bowl with a spatula or wooden spoon until all clumps are gone and mixture is smooth
  2. Add remaining ingredients into the same bowl and continue to mix, until oats are covered in wet mixture
  3. Drop small balls of dough onto non-stick cookie sheets (do not grease). These cookies expand in size when baking, so keep your dough balls relatively small for medium sized cookies
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown
  5. TIP: if you let your cookies sit on the hot baking sheet once you take them out of the oven, they will continue to cook. It’s better to pull them out of the oven before the bottoms are too brown, and let them finish baking on the hot cookie sheet (outside of the oven)
  6. Remove cookies from baking sheet and place on parchment paper to cool
  7. Dunk in milk and munch
