These soft and chewy chocolate chip blended oatmeal cookies are fantastic! Blending the oats gives the cookies the perfect texture (and flavor!).
Nothing beats a really delicious chocolate chip cookie. And this version with blended oatmeal gives all the delight and flavor of an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie with a soft and chewy texture.
Quick and Easy Cookie Dough
And because I’m all about cookie options, I am also including details on how to make these cookies bakery-style (read: super big and super amazing).
You know, just in case you want to pretend like you are running a bakery out of your house and the only customer is yourself. (Wait, am I the only one wanting to live that dream?)
As far as cookie doughs go, this recipe is straightforward and comes together fast.
You’ll have warm, ooey, gooey chocolate chip oatmeal cookies staring you in the face before you can strategically manage who is going to wash the mixing bowl.
For this recipe, the oats are blended until the texture resembles a coarse flour. I use my blender for this; a food processor will also work.
I have only ever used old-fashioned rolled oats, but I’m guessing quick oats will work fine, too. If using quick oats, measure with a light hand (or weigh the oats).
Why blend the oats? You get wholesome oat-y flavor throughout the entire cookie without the chewy textural logistics of using whole oats.
Soft and Chewy Cookies
At first glance, the cookies may look like a regular soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie (although if you really get down there in the cookie’s personal space, you might notice some of the pretty little oat flecks).
But one bite and you’ll quickly realize you’re eating an intensely delicious chocolate chip oatmeal cookie. They are hearty and decadent all at the same time.
A Perfect Little (or Big) Cookie
I recently made over 300 of these cookies for the freezer (for an upcoming church event). I only technically need 265 for the event, but I deliberately planned the excess to give me a chance to sneak a few from the freezer.
And, sneak a few I have. All in the name of research, of course. I’m pleased to report these cookies freeze very, very well.
