Blended Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Blended Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies from justataste.com #recipe

Despite the fact that I’ve never met a cookie I didn’t like, I found these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies to be among the best I have ever baked (or tasted). The recipe was inspired by the famous Neiman Marcus Cookie recipe, which my sister sent me, but I’ve added the grated Scharffen Berger chocolate and the Baker’s Sugar to make these cookies irresistibly delicious.

The blended oatmeal alters the consistency of the cookies by making them softer, while at the same time eliminating big chunks of oats to make for more even baking. Move over Monster Cookies, these Blended Oatmeal Cookies might just be my new all-time favorite.

Blended Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 2 dozen

Prep Time: 20 min

Cook Time: 15 min

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups oats
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup Baker's Sugar (superfine sugar)
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
12 oz. (about 2 cups) semisweet chocolate chips
3 oz. Scharffen Berger chocolate (99% cacao), grated
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts (optional)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 375ºF.

Add the oats to the bowl of a food processor and blend until they're a powder-like consistency.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter, brown sugar and Baker's Sugar.

Add the eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition, then add the vanilla.

Add the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and blended oatmeal and mix until combined.

Add the chocolate chips, grated chocolate bar and nuts (optional), mixing to combine.

Shape about 2 tablespoons of dough into mounds spaced 2 inches apart on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

Bake the cookies for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown. Remove the cookies from the oven and immediately transfer them to a cooling rack to cool completely.

    These are incredible- placed them as rather large cookies and they still baked perfectly even and were chewy after cooling! Using high quality chocolate/chocolate chips really seems to make a difference too. And I thought Pillsbury place-’n-bake cookies were good. hah! never again.

    Oh my god. Second time I have made these cookies and they are FANTASTIC. The recipe definitely makes more than 2 dozen, though I think that’s because I make small cookie balls. Either way, they force my family to break their respective diets because these cookies are too good to resist!! This recipe only too quickly replaced my Joy of Cooking choco chip recipe!

    I’ve been using almost the exact same recipe since I was about 10, They are my family’s favorite cookies. The difference is I mix the chips usually about 8oz of chocolate and then the rest white chocolate. My sisters favorite have 3 kinds chocolate, white, and butterscotch.

    Hi, I’m not from USA, and I don’t know how much is a cup. On the internet is a different measurement for each ingredient flour, sugar, butter. So, how much is a cup in your recipe? Thanks
    :)

    Tasha, I found this website which converts US cooking measurements to European (Metric). See if it helps. http://www.convert-me.com/en/convert/cooking/
