What's cooking? Wednesday - Simply wonderful oatmeal chocolate chip cookies!

Super yummy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies!
My husband teaches computer science and when it's the day of finals, he brings cookies for his students.  Today is that lucky day!  I made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and they are probably the best I've ever made. (I'm so modest!)  I tweaked an old recipe given to us by a family friend and...well, try it for yourself and decide.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 c. Canola oil
1 1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 T. milk
1 3/4 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
2 1/2 c. rolled oats (divided into 1 c. and 1 1/2 c.)
2 c. chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
In blender, grind up 1 cup of the oats.  Set aside.
Beat until creamy - Canola oil, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs and milk.
Add - flour, baking soda, salt.
Fold in - ground up oats, rolled oats and chocolate chips.

Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 6-8 minutes.

The cookies I made today were large (heaping tablespoon each) so they took 8 minutes to bake.  Smaller cookies will take less time.  Do not overbake.
The cookies should be crisp around the edges and chewy inside.  Heavenly!


  1. Do you think using steel-cut oats would work? I don't use the blender much because it is big and heavy and so cleaning it is a pain. Not because I am lazy, if that's what you are thinking. ;-)

    1. I'm not sure. If you don't like using the blender much, you could blend up enough oats for several batches and put the remainder in the freezer for use later... I KNOW you're going to want to make these again...and again...and again :)
