WHAT INGREDIENTS MAKE A GREAT  OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE? 

There are a few musts when it comes to making the ultimate Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. Here is a list of some must-do’s:

  • Old-fashioned rolled oats are a must for chewy oatmeal cookies so look for these rather than quick-oats which are thinner and don’t yield the same texture.
  • Chopped chocolate versus chocolate chips is a must for melty pockets and even chocolate distribution without adding too much chocolate (yes, there’s such thing as too much chocolate when it comes to oatmeal cookies).
  • Browned butter is easy to make and it really packs in a nuttiness that pushes these cookies over the edge. Cinnamon rounds out all the flavors adding both a hint of spice as well as some sweetness.

HOW TO MAKE OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

  1. Start by mixing the rolled oats, all-purpose flour, chopped chocolate, baking soda, ground cinnamon, and kosher salt, and set it aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt the butter until it foams and you see browned specks on the bottom of the pan. 
  3. Whisk the browned butter, oil, brown sugar, and sugar together then add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and whisk until the mixture is smooth and well combined. Add the dry mixture and mix until combined. 
  4. Scoop and roll balls, using wet hands when rolling and gently flatten on parchment lined baking sheets. Bake for 11 minutes or until the edges have set and the middle is not wet looking.
  5. Sprinkle with flaky salt and let cool on sheet for 10 minutes before moving to a rack to cool completely.
