Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Print this post
I had a hankering for something sweet last night, so I took an easy recipe off the back of Safeway's "Organic" brand semi sweet chocolate chips, modified it a bit, and got the most wonderful cookies, both chewy and crispy in texture! It made over 3 dozen too, which was nice to bring to work for everyone.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies


Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Whisk together in one large bowl:

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed golden brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Stir together in another bowl:

2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
2 1/2 cups quick rolled oats
1 cup chocolate chips

Add dry mixture to the wet, stir with spatula until incorporated. Put tablespoon sized balls of dough onto ungreased non-stick cookie sheet. I then pressed the balls down with my fingers just a smidgen. Bake for 10 minutes. Even if they don't look cooked, take them out! They will cool into lovely chewy morsels with a crisp outside texture. ENJOY!
