Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
Serves: 24 cookies (depending upon size of scoop)
Chewy chocolate chip oatmeal cookies you can make using your food storage!
  • ¾ c olive oil
  • 1 c brown sugar (if you are out of brown sugar, you can always add 1 T molasses to 1 c white sugar)
  • ½ c sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1½ c white flour
  • 2 c oats
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • 2 c chocolate chips
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixer (I use a Bosch mixer with cookie paddles), beat together oil, sugars, eggs, and vanilla for 2 minutes.
  3. Add flour, oats, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Beat together until mixed.
  4. Slowly add chocolate chips, mixing in on a low setting.
  5. Using a cookie scoop (I use a medium sized one - makes baking cookies SO easy. You can also use two spoons), scoop and drop cookie dough onto a baking sheet. (Note: If using a baking stone, increase cook time OR pre-heat the stone first in the oven.) You can fit around 12 cookies to a sheet, depending upon the size of you baking sheet. Be sure to evenly space them.
  6. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 8-12 minutes. Remove while still slightly doughy in the center (bake time is crucial for chewy cookies and can vary depending upon your location).
  7. Make sure the the cookies are ever so slightly doughy in the center. Allow to cool at least 5 minutes on the cookie sheet to allow the cookies to finish baking out of the oven.
  8. Remove cookies with a spatula and place them on a cooling rack.
  9. Enjoy!
I have had great success making these using whole wheat flour as well. It is a great way to add some health to the cookies and use your food storage!
