Cinnamon Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

It was rainy and dreary last Monday and I was craving some comfort sweets - and I had a big can of oats in my cupboard, along with a few  random bags of leftover chocolate chips.  So I decided to make some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, which have always been a favorite of mine.

I adapted this recipe from my favorite cookbook - the classic Joy of Cooking.

The recipe is below, but the ingredients are pretty basic.  First I preheated the oven to 350.  In a small bowl, I whisked together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.

In a large bowl I creamed butter and sugar then added 2 eggs and vanilla.

I liked this speckled egg!
Once the butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla were combined, I slowly added in the dry ingredients, then stirred in the oats and chocolate chips.  I had both mini and regular size chocolate chips in my cupboard, so I used those.

Oats, Oats, lots of Oats...
Roll them into 1-inch balls on a baking sheet... then, bake for ~13 minutes , pour a glass of cold milk and enjoy!  This recipe makes a lot of cookies, but one of my favorite things about these cookies is how well they freeze, so that when I'm craving one it's easy to take one out to satisfy my sweet tooth!

Cinnamon Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
makes approximately 36 cookies

1 3/4 c all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1tsp ground cinnamon
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1/4 c sugar
1 1/2 c brown sugar
2 large eggs
3 tsp vanilla
4 c oats
1 1/2 c chocolate chips

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and white sugar.  Once blended, beat in the brown sugar, then add the eggs, one at a time, and vanilla.

Slowly add the flour mixture.  Once combined, stir in the oats and chocolate chips.  Put the dough in the fridge for ~10 minutes to firm up (which makes it easier to roll the dough).

Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 

Bake at 350 for ~13 minutes.

Make like this guy and EAT!
