Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

So delicious.....So YUMMO!

I came across this delicious Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe when I was asked to do a cooking demo at our MOPS program at church.  It was back in November, and I cooked my Sausage Stuffing, and Chicken Pot Pie recipes for about 20 Moms. Yes, I was nervous, but it was fun! For a thank you gift, I was given the dry ingredients of this cookie recipe in a cute mason jar, right up my alley!

Now I am a Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie baker, but this recipe is by far better! I think it's the added oatmeal.  In the cute mason jar there were M&M's, chocolate chips, and nuts.  This recipe I didn't add the M&M's, I thought they are too sweet for my already sweet kids!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 1/3 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup Old Fashioned Oatmeal oats
1 stick butter softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1/2 bag chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts

In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients and whisk together so everything is mixed well. 

In another bowl cream the butter, sugars, egg, vanilla until light and fluffy.  Add the dry ingredients and mix well.  Add the chocolate chips and walnuts.  I do all of this with my trusty Kitchen Aid!

Line cookie sheets with foil and coat with baking spray.  Spoon nice size spoonfuls onto the cookie sheets, and bake in a 350 oven for about 10 mins or until they are firm to the touch, and lightly brown.  Or if you are like me, a little darker in color.

Cool, and enjoy.  I always double this recipe, just doesn't make enough!  Enjoy!
