I wanted to do something with the big bag of oats I have sat in my pantry and I found this amazing recipe on Pinterest and with a few adjustments I have the best chocolate chip and oat cookie recipe – these are seriously good.
I think it’s come to that time of year where all I want to do in the evenings is stay inside with a cup of tea and a biscuit and watch rubbish TV. These are the cookies you want to be doing that with!
Check out my video on how to make them and the recipe is below too. If you haven’t already, please subscribe to my YouTube channel 🙂
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cups rolled oats
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/4 cups chocolate chips
optional: 1- 2 tablespoons milk, if dough is crumbly
Preheat oven to 375 – gas mark 4.
Beat butter and sugars with an electric mixer until smooth. Add egg and vanilla, mixing well until combined, about 2 minutes. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and with the mixer on medium speed. Beat in oats. Mix until dough comes together. Add in 1 tablespoon milk if the dough is crumbly. If dough is still crumbly, add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until it comes together. Fold in chocolate chips. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Remove dough from fridge and roll into big 1 1/2 inch balls. Set on a baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Lightly press down on dough to flatten it. Bake at 375 for 9-11 minutes.
