A few weeks ago I made a batch of oatmeal cookies. I was hoping I could put together a couple of really cute photos, but they disappeared. And this time it wasn’t Jedi (although he loves baked goods to a fault) it was Steve. He ate all of them!!!!
1 cup unsalted butter at room temp.
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose whole wheat flour
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups Old Fashioned Oats
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 F
- In a large bowl using a hand mixer or electric stand mixer beat together the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add in vanilla and eggs (one at a time) making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl as you go.
- In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon.
- In batches add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and then gently stir in the oats until combined.
- Scoop cookies onto a Silpat or lightly greased baking sheet a couple of inches apart. And cook for about 12-13 minutes.
Note: these cookies are more crispy than chewy or cakey.
