Crispy (almost healthy) chocolate chip cookie.

I don't think I've posted a single recipe for the year!! #slacker #myovenistoosmall. But on our snow day before Easter my kids wanted to make some chocolate chip cookies. And I was lazily googling vitamix cookies recipes and came across this one. So though it's not a totally vitamix recipe but it seemed easy enough and the right combo of healthy and sugary to please our little bunch. It was the perfect pre-holiday snack. 

  

Ingredients

(makes 72 cookies)

2sticks of butter 
2 cups of flour
 (I used whole wheat white flour)
1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2.5 cups blended oatmeal (blend oatmeal to a fine powder- this is where my Vitamix came in)
2 cups milk  chocolate chips

2 sticks of butter
generous sprinkle of salt
1 8 oz.
1 chopped chocolate bar (1 cup of mini eggs in my case)
2 eggs

1 cups chopped nuts ( I used a combo of walnuts and almonds)
1 tsp. vanilla

Method

Mix the butter and both sugars together
Add eggs and vanilla slowly
Mix together the flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and soda and add to the wet mixture.
Add chocolate chips, chocolate and nuts.

Roll into 1 inch balls and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet.


Bake for 10- 12 minutes at 375 degrees depending on how crunchy you want your cookies to be . 
Serve with cold milk and a smile


This one will definitely be on repeat in this house… it was the perfect combination of sweet and crunchy!

  3. Chocolate chip cookies with oatmeal - sounds interesting. Do they have a taste of oatmeal cookies at all? They look delicious and crispy cookies are my favorite! I'll have to try this out sometime!

  5. My grandmother used to make some amazing crispy chocolate cookies so I'm a huge fan of those over the soft ones which are typically sold in stores.
