Recently my mom visited my grandparents and since I know they all love cookies, I decided to send my mom along with some cookies. My papa’s favorite cookie is a basic chocolate chip cookie, which is great, but I always find myself always wanting to add a twist and try a new recipe. I found a great recipe for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies here and they add a dash of cinnamon, which my nana ended up loving! My papa told me he had to hide the cookies from my nana so he could get enough!
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (I used a mix of whole wheat and white)
3/4 cups rolled oats (old-fashioned)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/4 cups chocolate chips
optional: 1- 2 tablespoons milk, if dough is crumbly
– Preheat oven to 375.
– Beat butter and sugars with a mixer until smooth. Add egg and vanilla, mixing until combined.
– In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Slowly add this mix into the wet mix and beat on medium.
– Add in oats and mix until combined. If still crumbly, add milk. (I ended up adding 2 tablespoons, which helped tremendously).
– Fold in chocolate chips and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
– Set onto cookie sheet.
– Bake for 9-11 minutes.
Tip: Refrigerate your dough in between batches too to keep dough cool.
