FORA Bites: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

cookie_header

There are two types of people in this world: those who eat chocolate chip cookies and those who eat chocolate chip OATMEAL cookies. We are the latter, and after trying this recipe out, we know you will be too.

This recipe, given to us by our sweetest friend over at Glazed , is super simple and only takes about 10 minutes to make the dough. Depending on how many cookie sheets you can fit in your oven at once, the whole process will cost you roughly 1 hour (a.k.a. 1 episode of Mad Men that you can have up on your laptop while baking). With hundreds of oatmeal cookie recipes in the cookie universe, we like this one for its crunchy consistency and bold flavours.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter (melted)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla (do not omit)
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 cups quick oats
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Mix the first 6 ingredients in a separate bowl with a spatula or wooden spoon until all clumps are gone and mixture is smooth
  2. Add remaining ingredients into the same bowl and continue to mix, until oats are covered in wet mixture
  3. Drop small balls of dough onto non-stick cookie sheets (do not grease). These cookies expand in size when baking, so keep your dough balls relatively small for medium sized cookies
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown
  5. TIP: if you let your cookies sit on the hot baking sheet once you take them out of the oven, they will continue to cook. It’s better to pull them out of the oven before the bottoms are too brown, and let them finish baking on the hot cookie sheet (outside of the oven)
  6. Remove cookies from baking sheet and place on parchment paper to cool
  7. Dunk in milk and munch
