Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
I have been doing more baking lately because both of my kids want to “help” me in the kitchen. Baking cookies is an easy & fun way to connect with my kids. These cookies turned out really good! They’re chewy on the inside and slightly crunchy on the outside. They are perfect dipped in ice cold milk.
- 1 stick of butter, softened
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup PLUS 2 tbsp of flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/2 cups of quick cooking oats
- 1/2 cup semi sweet mini chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. In a mixer, combine the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until creamy. Mixing slowly, add the egg along with the vanilla. In a separate bowl combine the flour, salt and baking soda; slowly stir the flour mixture into the creamed mixture until blended. Add the oats, chocolate chips & nuts then mix thoroughly. Drop spoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!
