Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies is the most popular post on my website to date. They are so thick, soft, chewy, and delicious, it's no wonder people people keep coming back to make them time and time again! This got me thinking about how I could make that recipe even better, and then it hit me: oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies. These cookies are every bit as soft, thick and chewy as the others, but they are also full of oatmeal which adds such a delicious chewy texture to a classic cookie flavor. I can't stop at just one oatmeal chocolate chunk cookie - they're that good.
The ingredients are mostly what you'd expect, but there is a secret ingredient that helps them stay so soft and chewy:
While oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are obviously the superior choice to oatmeal raisin cookies, turning this recipe into oatmeal raisin cookies is simple enough. Simply just double the amount of cinnamon and replace the chocolate chips with raisins.
The steps to making these delicious oatmeal cookies are exactly what you would expect from a homeamde cookie:
step one: stir together oats, flour, cornstarch, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl, set aside
step two: beat butter with brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy
step three: add eggs and vanilla and beat until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes
step four: add the oat mixture a little at a time, stirring well after each addition
step five: stir in the chocolate chunks until evenly distributed
step six: drop scoops of 2-3 tablespoons of cookie dough onto parchemnt lined baking sheet
step seven: bake at 350 F for 10 minutes, or until cookies are lightly golden
These cookies stay nice and fresh in a sealed container for a few days on the counter once baked. Baked cookies can be frozen for several months; the better way to do this would be to freeze the dough in pre-scooped cookie dough balls though. When you are ready to bake the dough, you can thaw in the fridge overnight or on the counter for a few hours and bake fresh cookies! You can also bake from frozen but you will need to add 3-4 minutes to the baking time - and the cookies will be thicker than baking from room temperature. The cookies made from frozen dough taste just as good as (if not better than) non-frozen dough.
