Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies:

Who doesn’t love a good, soft and chewy homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookie? In our house, these are always a hit! It does not take long after I make them for them to be gobbled up. I love using just a small amount of dough for each cookie to make mini cookies. Even though my husband often asks that I make a few big cookies, so we are less tempted to eat a ton of little ones at once. This recipe happens to be one that I make a few times a month. In an effort to spend a little less on groceries I have tried to bake sweets at home instead of buying a ton of prepackaged ones. These do not disappoint!

 

Recipe Variations:

I think everything is better with chocolate; however, this recipe could be changed up, and tons of other tasty ingredients could be added to change up the flavor. Feel free to toss in things like raisins, other dried fruit or nuts instead of or even in addition to the chocolate chips.
 

I also like to chill my cookie dough in the refrigerator for an hour or two before I pop these in the oven. When you allow your dough to chill it helps the cookies not to spread or flatten out as much as they would if you just popped them in the oven right away. I have made these without chilling the dough as well though. I mean sometimes you want cookies now, and they are still just as yummy.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of butter (room temperature)
1 large egg
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup of rolled oats
3/4 cup of flour
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1 cup of chocolate chips

 


Directions:

  1. Combine the brown sugar, sugar, butter, egg and vanilla extract in a bowl until well combined.
  2. Add in oatmeal, flour, and baking soda until well combined.
  3. Add in chocolate chips until they are mixed in. This just takes a few seconds.
  4. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper and spoon small amounts and place on cookie sheet. I like to use about 1/2 tbsp amount of dough to make mini cookies.
  5. Optional Step: Chill dough on sheets anywhere from one hour to 24 hours before baking
  6. Bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 10 minutes. If you like your cookies a little more firm, then add a few additional minutes to your time. Be careful not to over cook them though. If they are in the oven too long, they can get hard and even a little burnt on the bottom.
  7. Allow them to cool down for at least 10 minutes before enjoying. Cookies will set as they cool.
  8. Enjoy!

Store any leftover cookies in an airtight container, so they stay soft.
