These Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies are everything you want in a cookie. They’re soft and chewy, yummy, healthy and the best part your kids will love them. You can’t even tell there’s oatmeal in these because the oatmeal is grounded into a fine flour. These cookies can be left on the counter top for up to 5 days. But these babies will probably be gone in 1 day 😉

- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup brown sugar *I used light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup or 1 stick of butter softened *For dairy-free, substitute with margarine or refined coconut shortening
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup grounded oatmeal *use food processor
- 1/2 cup +2 tablespoons of flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 2 ounces or about half of chocolate bar chopped *I use bittersweet, or any chocolate bar you have on hand.
Combine your dry ingredients in a separate bowl and set aside.
Using a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, add butter, sugar and brown sugar and mix until smooth and fluffy. (*You can also mix these ingredients by hand and get a great arm workout.)
Next, add the egg and vanilla extract and mix really well.
Reduce the mixer speed to low and slowly add in the dry ingredients. Mix really well.
Lastly, add in the chocolate chips and chocolate chunks and mix.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Take a tablespoon full of the cookie dough and using your hands roll them into a ball.
Place the balls about 2 inches apart, so that the cookie has room to spread out while baking.
Bake them at 350 F. for about 11 minutes or until the edges start to turn golden brown. When you take them out the cookie should steel feel soft in the center.
Remove the cookies with a spatula and place on a wire rack and let them cool completely and watch them disappear 😉
