Oatmeal & Dark Chocolate Chippers
Do you remember the days when you would come home from school and a fresh batch of cookies was being pulled out of the oven? Yeah me neither. That only happens in Toll House commercials, but it is a beautiful thought isn’t it? I try to bake or cook just about everyday, and yesterday I made these delicious oatmeal cookies with dark chocolate chunks. My sister came home from work and knew right when she walked in that there were fresh cookies. I love to make people happy through baking! These cookies are chewy and delicious, and the oatmeal totally makes them healthy! Right? Okay well don’t quote me on that, but how could oats and dark chocolate be bad? Hellllooooo antioxidants people! Time to get baking.
First cream up your butter and sugars!
Then add eggs and vanilla,
Then add your flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
Then you can use whichever chips you would like, but I had these dark chocolate chunks I was dying to use.
Then I coarsly chopped the chunks so I had a variety of sizes.
Then I just mixed in the chunks and oats.
Scoop them on some parchment…
And after about 9 minutes in the oven…
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) + 6 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup dark chocolate cups (coarsely chopped)
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease two cookie sheets and set aside.
- Beat butter, sugar, and brown sugar together on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until well combined.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon, then add to the butter mixture and beat until combined. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.
- Scoop dough into rounded tablespoons and place on baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Lightly press down to flatten each dough ball. Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until done. For chewier cookies, bake for 9 minutes, for crispier baker for 11 minutes.
