Chocolate chip cookies and milk. I think my son could eat his nine year old weight in them he loves them so much. Last year, we had an experiment to find the perfect chocolate chip cookie and found one that we both loved. I turned them into chocolate chip cookie brownies and even used them in my recipe for chocolate chip peanut butter doozies that will knock your socks off they are so delicious!
But then, just a while back my husband told me he really preferred a chewier chocolate chip cookie. So our adventure started again.
We spent afternoons in the kitchen mixing, tasting, baking, and grinning from ear to ear.
It’s a tough life testing chocolate chip cookie recipes, isn’t it?
But a mighty delicious one at that.
Who would have thought that the cookie my family loved the most as a “chocolate chip cookie” has oatmeal in it?
But from one taste of the dough, we knew this recipe was different.
If you like your cookies to be crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside with the perfect combination of sweet and a little bite of salty then this cookie recipe has your name on it, too!
Cream your butter
Add in your brown sugar
And then your granulated sugar.
Mix together until light and fluffy.
Mix in your eggs
And yummy vanilla.
Vanilla just makes everything taste better.
Mix in flour
And then the secret little ingredient – oats.
Yum, yum, yum!
Now, add in sea salt.
Believe me, you definitely want to use sea salt in your chocolate chip cookies.
Throw in your baking soda and mix well.
Now toss in your chocolate chips and mix them in well.
Scoop dough onto cookie sheet and bake for about 8-10 minutes just until lightly golden brown.
Remove from the oven and watch them disappear.
