How to Make Double Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
Preheat the oven and prepare the cookie sheets – Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line the cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Cream together the ingredients – Beat the softened butter together with the granulated and brown sugar. Once the butter and sugar are creamy and pale in color, beat in the eggs, one at a time until combined well. Then, mix in the vanilla extract.
Finely grind the old-fashioned oats – Using a food processor, add the oats and blend until finely ground. Using ground old-fashioned oats will give the cookies a nice chewy texture.
TIP: A food processor will create finely ground oatmeal in just a few quick pulses.
Combine the dry ingredients – Spoon and level the all purpose flour and add it to a large bowl and mix in the ground oats. Stir in the baking powder, baking soda, and salt and combine well.
Add the oat mixture into the wet mixture – Slow blend the dry ingredients into the butter mixture until all ingredients are moistened.
Stir in the chocolate chips – Using a spoon, stir in both kinds of chocolate chips until combined well.
Scoop the cookies and bake – Using a #40 cookie scoop or about 1 1/2 tablespoonsful of dough, scoop the cookies onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper leaving 2 inches between each cookie.
TIP: Cookie scoops are great tools to use to get uniform-sized cookies and for easy scooping.
Bake – Bake for 14-16 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
Allow the cookies to cool – Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to sit for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
