Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie

In the great debate over which is best chocolate chip or oatmeal - my vote is for whichever cookie is in my mouth. But, to me, the perfect compromise is this recipe. The oatmeal is blended so is not overpowering yet adds great texture.

I've shared this recipe before but it truly is the cookie I never tire of. It makes a huge batch which is perfect for sharing. There is lots of great cookie recipes around this time of year, but I rarely make fancy cookies. Tried and true favorites like chocolate chip work for me!




1 1/2 cups butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
Cream butter and sugar together.

4 eggs
Add eggs and beat well.

3 cups whole wheat flour
5 cups oatmeal (blended until fine)
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
Blend in dry ingredients.


2 cups chocolate chips
2 cups chopped nuts (optional)
Stir in chips and nuts. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.

  1. i have a recipe that I got free off the Martha White website. Truffle Fudge Chocolate Chip, anything chocolate is my favorite. But htose truffle fudge cookies are SO simple and they look like I took for ever! I always double the batch so I can freeze half of it. Going to write down your recipe though! It's nice to know the ones that are "tried & true" !
