Magic Chocolate Chip Cookies
April 24, 2015 Kendra Valentine
This recipe for chocolate chip cookies has all the goodness of classic chocolate chip cookies but with a magic weapon… ground OATMEAL! The oatmeal doesn’t make the cookies taste like oatmeal cookies, it does something else magical to the cookies and elevates the entire situation: you’ll just have to try it to understand what I mean!
- Makes about 3 dozen small cookies (4 cm. diameter)
- 1 cup (225 grams) butter
- 1 cup sugar (2 dl)
- 1 cup dark brown sugar (2 dl)
- 1 cup chocolate chips or chunks
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp. real vanilla extract (or 1 tsp. vanilla sugar)
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2½ cups oatmeal or Harvregryn (This is measured before it is blended into powder)
- *½ tsp. salt (if your butter has no salt)
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda (Bicarbonat in Swedish)
Tip: Don’t have chocolate chips? Just chop up a milk chocolate bar!
Melt the butter on low until half is liquid and half is very soft.(I do this in the oven while it is preheating to 375 F or 200 C) While the butter is melting, make your Oatmeal powder in the food processor (might work in a blender also in very small batches)
When butter is ready put: butter, sugar, and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl. Mix together thoroughly.
Add eggs and vanilla, stir couple times (but do not mix thoroughly, you will continue to mix after adding other ingredients.)
Mix in the remaining dry ingredients. Makes sure the dough has a nice smooth and sticky consistency. (you can add a spoon of water, cream or milk to be sure its not dry).
I’m also using a chopped chocolate bar instead of chocolate chips…. so lets say chocolate chunk cookies then…
(Obviously, you can simply store the dough until you want to use it.)
Drop round balls with a 1 inch (2.5 centimeter) diameter on cookie sheets, two inches apart, and bake 6-8 minutes. Do not cook until it is really brown on the edges, when you let the cookies cool you will find they are done perfectly.
You can simply store the dough until you want to use it.
Leftovers: Store at room temperature in a jar or plastic bag for a few days.
