Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I don’t know about you, but I have a sweet tooth. Like major sweet tooth and when I find something I like, I like it a lot and want to have it all the time!

As a kid my mom used to always make oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and I’ve loved them since then. I’ve always been a fan of oatmeal, which is why I think I love them so much.

This recipe is seriously the best too. The cookies come out warm and gooey and go perfect with a glass of milk. Just ask my daughter. She’s the reason I can’t eat them in front of her. She will end up finishing them for me. Mommy doesn’t like to share her cookies.

The other great thing about oatmeal is that it helps with your milk supply when you’re nursing. Score! So that’s how I justify eating a baker’s dozen of these a day. It’s all about the baby. {wink, wink}

Enjoy this easy recipe and make some delicious cookies. I promise you will fall in love!
INGREDIENTS

2 sticks of softened butter
1 cup brown sugar (packed)
¼ cup white sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 ½ cup flour
½ tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp of cinnamon (I like to do 2)
3 cups oatmeal
2 cups chocolate chips

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Mix the butter and sugars together in a mixer until white and fluffy (2-3 minutes)
  4. Add eggs and beat on high for 1 minute. Then add vanilla.
  5. Slowly add in flour mixture and mix on low.
  6. Add in oatmeal and chocolate chips. Keep the mixer on low. Mix until combined.
  7. Chill the dough for 30 minutes-1 hour. This step is not necessary if you are crunched for time.
  8. Put parchment paper (I use a silpat) on your cookie sheet and use a cookie scoop to place the dough about 2 inches apart. I fit 12 cookies per sheet.
  9. As for baking time you have to know your oven. My oven cooks fast (gas oven) so I cook the cookies for 8 minutes. You want the cookies to be light brown around the edges and gooey in the middle. They will continue to cook when you take them out of the oven. Play around with your cooking times for each batch so that the next time you make them, you’ll know for certain the perfect cooking time.
NOTES

If you don’t like chocolate chips, you can add raisins or nuts. Do whatever tickles your fancy!
If you like dryer cookies, cook longer. If you like gooeyer cookies, cook less.
