Since I missed posting yesterday, I’m posting 2 today.  Today I made a new oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe.  I love oatmeal raisin cookies.  I love chocolate chip cookies.  So it should stand that I love oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, right?  RIGHT!  This recipe is unique in that it requires you to blend the oatmeal in a food processor until it becomes like a powder.  I did this in a blender and it worked great.  I think this really helps the cookies stay together and takes away the chunky part of oatmeal raisin.  Instead you get an oatmeal tasting cookie with a traditional chocolate chip cookie texture! 

This recipe doesn’t really have an inspiration.  I just really wanted something with chocolate!  The recipe will make about 4 dozen cookies.  I only make 11 and am saving the batter for later. 🙂

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 cups oatmeal, blended to a powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 4 oz Hershey chocolate bar, grated (optional)

Tips from the Kitchen – Softer Cookies – To get softer cookies, add a pinch more of baking powder to your recipes.

Directions

  1. Cream together butter, sugar and brown sugar.  Add eggs and vanilla.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix flour, oatmeal (in powder form), salt, baking powder and baking soda.
  3. Add flour mixture to butter mixer.
  4. Mix in chocolate chips and grated chocolate.
  5. Drop on parchment paper on cookie sheets in golf ball size.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 6-8 minutes on the convection oven setting.

I think the trick to why these particular cookies are so yummy is two-fold.  First the oatmeal is blended into a powder, making the cookies smoother, soft etc. AND there is extra chocolate in the mix with the grated chocolate.  I haven’t used these two things before, and I can definitely tell they are better!
