Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

I love chocolate and oatmeal so I'm always looking for a reason to make some delicious chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. I had some extra time on a Friday night so I decided to look through a cookbook Gem gifted me called Sally's Baking Addiction for some inspiration.  I found a recipe called oatmeal scotchies that looked like it could be easily adjusted.  I simply replaced the butterscotch chips with chocolate chips.

First, you'll whisk together the dry ingredients: 1 3/4 cups flour, 1 1/4 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1 tsp ground cinnamon.  In another bowl, cream 1 cup softened butter.  Add 1/2 cup of granulated sugar and 3/4 cup dark brown sugar (I used light brown sugar with no issues) to the mixture and beat until fluffy.  Mix in 2 eggs and 2 tsp of vanilla extract.  

Gradually add in the dry ingredients.  I usually do this in thirds.  Mix in 3 cups of QUICK cooking oats and fold in 1 1/4 cup of chocolate chips.  The dough needs to be chilled for half an hour in the refrigerator and then wait for it to warm up at room temperature for about 10 minutes. 

I used a cookie dough scooper and made my cookies approximately 2 tablespoons.  The recipe says to bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees and the cookies will look under baked.  Let the cookies rest on the cookie sheet for 10 more minutes before transferring to a wire rack.  However, my daughter and I felt the completely cool cookies were a little too soft for our tastes so we baked about 5 minutes longer in the oven.  We got a browner cookie and a better texture that was more to our liking.  It's important to follow recipes, but oven temperatures vary so always allow some room for adjustments.    

Happy Baking!

Love to make giant oatmeal chocolate chip cookies!

Delicious with a tall glass of milk!
