Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 Sep

Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

The following recipe makes about 30 cookies:
  • 1/2 cup softened unsalted butter, a little less is fine for those who are more health conscious.
  • 4 tbsps of honey or agave
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1.5 cups of oats
  • a pinch of salt
  • 150 grams of chocolate chips
In a large mixing bowl, combine well the butter, both sugars, honey/agave, egg and vanilla extract. Sieve in the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Mix well and then gradually add in the oats and chocolate chips.  Ensure all the ingredients are well mixed.

Form dough into 2 inch rounds, place on baking sheet at least two inches apart and lightly flatten with the palm of your hand.  Bake in a preheated 375ºC oven for 10 minutes.  Let cookies cool before removing from the baking sheet.

Two oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with chocolate ice cream in between.

For an added treat, use the cookies to make ice cream sandwiches.  In this case, serve while the cookies are still slightly warm.  I really enjoy the hint of warmth against the icy cold ice cream.

    These look really really great! I love putting ice cream between cookies, even if it does make me feel mega guilty…
