Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies seem to be the quintessential dessert for the Christmas season. Chocolate Chip Cookies are one of my favorites, and when you add oatmeal to the mix, the result is incredibly yummy. Once you get these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies out on the plate, they won’t last long. It’s the perfect combination of healthy and sweet rolled in to one awesome treat! I know you, your family, and Santa will love them!

Recipe for Oatmeal and Chocolate Chip Cookies


110g (4oz) butter, softened

110g (4oz) caster sugar

110g (4oz) soft brown sugar

1 egg

2 tbsp water

1 tsp vanilla extract

250g (9oz) porridge oats (rolled oats)

110g (4oz) self-raising flour

1 level tsp salt

110g (4oz) chocolate chips, raisins or chopped nuts

Directions: Preheat the oven to 180C (350F), Gas Mark 4. Cream the butter in a large bowl or in an electric food mixer until soft. Add the sugars and beat until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the egg, water and vanilla extract while still beating. Reduce the speed and gently mix in the oats, flour, salt and raisins to form a dough. Using your hands, roll the dough into walnut sized balls and place slightly apart on two baking trays. Bake in the oven for 12-25 minutes or until light golden brown but still slightly soft in the centre. Allow to cool on the trays for a minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

  2. You know, I have been loosing random weight for no reason.. kind of scary… but.. you are going to make me gain it again! LOL!!

  3. I can smell and taste them from here. Florida is not too far away! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog during the UBP. Hope you don’t mind if I come by and visit you again

    Hi Jerri, I keep looking at your profile picture…and I can’t belive that this is YOU!!
    How long ago is this pic.
    made? You are realy cute;
    I thought you are somewhere in late 50’s…
    hahaha… :):):)

  6. Jerri - Simply Sweet Home says

    Thanks Donna.

    Felicia, my husband says the same thing to me….”how can I lose weight with all this cooking going on?”

    Lissa – Actually we used to live only about 30 minutes or so from the Florida border…now we’re about 30 minutes away from the Tennessee border. Stop by any time!

    Sherry – This was my first time to try the oatmeal and chocolate chip combo. And they were quite scrumptious!

    Nina – The picture was taken about 2 1/2 years ago. Your comment made me laugh! I finally posted a pic up, because every time I’d sign in to follow someone, I’d get that generic man shadow picture thingy, and I hated it!

    It’s funny that you thought I was was nearly 60….I always feel that in my writing it’s obvious that I’m young. (At the very least, I thought that the fact that we have no kids yet and I’m only a few years out of college, would lead people to think I was young.)

  7. I will likely make these in the next day or so – Thanks for sharing!
