Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

J gifted me with a 72 oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips before she went back to the US (thanks J!) So of course the first thing I did was make chocolate chip cookies. Looking at the back of the bag, I saw there was a recipe that included oats, and since oats would obviously cancel out the chocolate chips and make them calorie free, I decided to try out that option. Man they're good, you'd never even know they're healthy for you :)

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Adapted from back of Nestle chocolate chip bag


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup (225g) butter
2 large eggs
2 tbsp milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups porridge oats
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 190C / 375F.

Combine flour and baking soda in a small bowl. Beat brown sugar, butter and granulated sugar in a large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in oats and chocolate chips; mix well. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 9 or 10 minutes for chewy cookies or 12 to 13 minutes for crispy cookies. Cool on baking sheets for 1 minute; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
