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)
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.
