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.
- Cream together butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla.
- In a separate bowl, mix flour, oatmeal (in powder form), salt, baking powder and baking soda.
- Add flour mixture to butter mixer.
- Mix in chocolate chips and grated chocolate.
- Drop on parchment paper on cookie sheets in golf ball size.
- 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!
This was a 2 blender job! Thanks Stach and Willow!
This batter is also very tasty! I saved most of it to make warm cookies another night, or eat the dough…
And remember, never leave the kitchen with a clean apron!
