Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

by katerina on June 15, 2011

This cookie recipe was a bit of an accident. After trying three versions of a cakey oatmeal cookie recipe, I changed my approach and produced these. They aren’t a truly cakey recipe but they are light, moist and chewy and overall a great oatmeal chocolate chip cookie.

So get yourself a glass of milk, a cup of tea or a latte and make yourself a batch. They are not as healthy as the peanut butter oatmeal cookies, but not everything in life should be good for you.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

(2 dozen)

2/3 cup canola oil
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups oats
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375F. Prepare two baking trays by lining them with parchment paper. In a large bowl beat together oil, brown sugar, the 2 eggs and the vanilla. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in the oats. Gently stir the wet into the dry and fold in chocolate chips.

Drop in little rounds about 2 tablespoons in sized onto the cookie sheet. Press gently to lightly flatten. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until just starting to brown. Cool on a rack.

The quest for a cakey cookie is an interesting one! I will have to try this recipe. The canola oil, I bet, is the instigator for the positive difference. Sounds like a keeper!

I am sorry to hear that, I made them again last night and did not find them too dry. What size eggs are you using? (I recommend large -> extra large)

You may want to up the sugar in this recipe if you have a sweet tooth!
