Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

This oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe has a lovely Christmassy flavour. If you add walnuts, almonds peanuts, raisins, cranberries or other dried fruits and nuts instead of chocolate chips you can increase the healthiness of these cookies even further. Different spices like nutmeg and cinnamon could also be added.

I reduced the amount of sugar because lately I have not liked overly sweet treats. So there is only half a cup of sugar and only half a cup of butter. 

When I made these I was a bit overly ambitious because I  love the idea of eating extremely large cookies mine turned out quite large a bit too large actually. That however didn’t stop me from eating more than my fair share. If you want to get more cookies out of the dough you can easily make 18 smaller cookies which are equally as filling but you may have to keep a close eye on them to make sure they do not burn.

Method :

Preheat the oven to 180C°. Convert!

  1. Place the softened butter into a bowl and mix it together with the sugars and the desiccated coconut until a creamy consistency is achieved.
  2.  Then add the egg and the vanilla essence and mix well.
  3. Add all of the dry ingredients the flour, the baking powder and the salt and combine gradually.
  4. Lastly stir in the oats and fold in the chocolate chips. I ended up just chopping up a block of chocolate because someone had eaten all of the chocolate chips this resulted in larger chunks of chocolate in my cookies which is a bonus in my opinion.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 180C°.
