These Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are easy, crispy yet chewy and full of chocolate. You might forget any other kind of cookie after these eggless Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I realized I haven’t done a cookie recipe in some time now. How can a dessert challenge be over without a decadent cookie post? I absolutely love homemade cookies – the fragrant butter, the gooey chocolate chips – everything about home-made cookies screams AWESOME. So thought of doing these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are simpler than you think.
My son is on a hunger strike (from last month I guess), he’s being very picky (and driving me mad). Things that are okay in his book currently are Pringles, biscuits, cookies, murrukku – anything crispy chewy. So I feel, a home-made cookie is a better alternative to the store bought one. At least I know it has good quality butter and no preservatives and not palm oil and artificial flavoring. And to make it even healthier I have added the wonderful oatmeal. I secretly want to go back a few months when my son ate everything on earth – including things like oats, bitter gourd, broken wheat etc etc. Now it’s just the opposite situation at home.
How to make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies?
This cookie is made with a mix of all-purpose flour and instant oats. You could also use whole wheat flour if you want. In a bowl add flour, baking soda, and salt. Yes, believe, this salt will bring a big difference in the taste later. It balances out the sweetness.
In a separate mixing bowl cream together sugar and softened butter. You can use brown sugar too, that will give a darker brown cookie instead of the golden ones here. You don’t need a stand or hand mixer for this, a simple spatula or fork will do. Add in 3 tablespoons of milk while creaming – it will help the sugar to melt and mix fast. Add in vanilla essence.
Add in the flour mix, oats and chocolate chips in this mix now. Whisk with a fork till everything is incorporated well. Rest this cookie dough for 15 minutes.
How to arrange Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies for Baking?
I love how simple the cookie dough is. It doesn’t require too much mixing. Line the baking tray with a baking paper and grease it well with butter or cooking spray. I do my baking in the convection mode of my microwave. So my biggest baking tray is the round one that comes along with the microwave. This has one limitation for me, though, I can’t bake a big batch in 2-3 baking trays, I have to repeat the batches! But that’s okay as long as the end result is good!
Take the 1 tablespoon measuring spoon and scoop out the cookie dough on the lined and greased baking tray. Keep good space around the cookies because they will expand and you don’t want them joined at their hip!
Pro Tip: It’s very difficult to make your baking paper stay at one place, especially if you tray/tin is round. Crumple the baking paper in your hand and then spread inside the tray/ tin. Now the baking paper is bound to behave!
Bake in a pre-heated oven for 20 mins at 180C /375F. Once done, transfer to a wire rack and allow it to cool for 15-20 mins.
And then you are free to chomp it off!
This recipe will make 25 cookies which you can store for almost a week. This is a great recipe if you want to bake some cookies for gifting a friend or colleague. I love it just like that.
Here my little man chewed on it. You will love how fluffy and chewy it is in the inside and how the first bite is a crispy wonder.
