chewy chocoolate chip & oatmeal cookies


My brother was visiting from Edmonton & so with 2 men in the house, I made a batch of my 'man friendly' cookies (aka no modified ingredient substitutions). All things in moderation, there is a time and place for a good' ol regular cookie (some would say normal, I wouldn't). 

Made with much less sugar than most and lots of whole grains, it's one you can still feel good about baking. 

Yield: 30 cookies

Ingredients
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar (White or brown, either or combo of both. I've been experimenting with taking a few teaspoons full out, so I usually use less than 3/4 cup but more than 1/2 cup)
2 free range eggs

1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups unbleached white flour
2 3/4 cups oats (large flake or quick both work-I used quick in the photo)
1 cup dark chocolate chips (or whatever you have on hand...I chopped a dark chocolate & almond bar from Presidents Choice into chunks)
chop each square into 2 pieces and make enough to fill 1-cup

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. In a large bowl cream butter, sugar and eggs until well mixed
  3. In another bowl, mix dry ingredients together (everything except oats and chips)
  4. Add dry to wet ingredients and mix until just well incorporated
  5. Add oats and chocolate chips & mix
  6. Spoon onto a parchment lined cookie sheet (by heaping tablespoon)
  7. Bake 8-10 mins*

*Very important!!! Don't overbake! They should look underdone when you take them out of the oven. Let them set-up & cool for about 15 mins on the cookie sheet and they'll be perfect. Let them bake a little longer if you prefer a cakey cookie. But who prefers those??





































Ahhhhh, sitting by the window, computing and cookies.
