Oatmeal + Chocolate Chip = Deli Cookies
We love adding oatmeal to our cookies. They add the perfect chew and unparalleled texture. Sometimes I prefer oatmeal chocolate chip cookies to regular chocolate chip cookies.
I love how chewy the first bite is full of oatmeal and chocolate chips. So did others trying this amazing recipe (it’s just so good!)
Baking in the cold winter is my favorite. I love the warmth the oven brings to the house and the smell of freshly baked cookies filling the room. My kids love it too! While these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are baking, they all flock to the kitchen. There is no way these cookies will be with my kids. ?
what makes them chewy?
The oats in this chocolate chip cookie recipe have a certain texture that gives them their unique chewy taste. Brown sugar also helps make it more chewy. If my cookies aren’t chewy, why bother! ? Who loves chewy cookies? not me!
how to make them
Start making these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies by mixing together butter and sugar. Then beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla and mix everything well. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. The dry mixture is then added to the creamy mixture. Stir them together until just combined.
Add oats, walnuts and chocolate chips. Once everything is mixed, spoon the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a 325°F oven for 10-12 minutes. Let them cool on the pan for another 5 minutes (this also helps them bake longer). Then transfer them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
This recipe makes about 3 dozen cookies – Depends on how big you shape them. 😉
Tips, Storage and Replacement
Should I chill the dough? There is no need to cool the dough. However, if you have time to cool the dough, it will help make a thicker cookie with a browned crust and a soft center.
Storage Tips: Ever wondered how to keep your oatmeal chocolate chip cookies fresh and chewy longer? Place a slice of bread in a storage container with the biscuits. A loaf of bread will absorb the excess air and the cookies will stay soft and chewy!
freezing: You can freeze baked cookies for up to 3 months in an airtight container. To freeze cookie dough, place the scooped dough on a baking sheet and place in the freezer to freeze. Once frozen, place dough balls in a freezer-safe container. Freeze up to 3 months.
