As a kid, I thought oatmeal cookies were ok, but when there were chocolate chip cookies around I would always choose one over an oatmeal cookie. This recipe is a great blending of the two. You can also add 1 cup of chopped nuts if you like, but I wanted my toddler to be able to eat the cookies (which she did with gusto), so I didn’t include them in the recipe.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup King Arthur’s white wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 cups rolled oats
1 stick butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup brown sugar (sucanat or coconut sugar)
1/2 cup brown sugar (date sugar) (optional)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350° F.
- In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and oats with a whisk and set aside.
- In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar(s) with whisk and then beat in the egg until the mixture is smooth.
- With an electric mixer on medium high, drizzle in the maple syrup and vanilla to the sugar mixture.
- Turn the mixer to low again and add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture gradually.
- Blend in the chocolate chips with spatula.
- Spoon the cookies in walnut-sized portions onto baking sheets covered with parchment paper.
- Bake for 9 min. and turn them halfway through so that they bake evenly.
