It has been a long time since I’ve shared a recipe on my blog. So, I’m breaking back into it with my new favorite cookie recipe: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I made these cookies by Center Cut Cook. Having mostly been off of baked goods and sweets for six months, these cookies were a little too sweet for me. So I made a few adjustments, but kept the secret to Center Cut Cook’s cookies – ground oatmeal.
With the oatmeal and chunky peanut butter, these cookies have a nice texture, while remaining chewy and soft. Hope you like them as much as Russell and I do!
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/8 cup extra chunky peanut butter
1/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
With your mixer, cream together the butter, peanut butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla.
1 1/4 cup old fashioned oats
3/4 cup white flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
In a food processor or Ninja, pulse the oats until finely ground (about 10-15 seconds in my Ninja). Combine in bowl with other dry ingredients and slowly add to wet ingredients. Mix well.
1/4 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips
Fold in chocolate chips. I love this brand because they are small so a smaller amount goes a long way in the cookies!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Form ping-pong ball sized dough balls and place on a cookie sheet with non-stick baking mat. Cook for 12-14 minutes, until the cookies are no longer glistening and they are starting to turn a light golden brown.
Remove from oven and allow them to cool on the cookie sheet before transferring to a wire rack.
Makes about 18 cookies.
