Chocolate Chip and Oatmeal Cookies

Tuesday, January 20

I've missed baking since September when I moved to uni. I took all my things with me but just don't seem to have the time or the motivation to go and get the ingredients. While I was home I made a few things so I thought I would share this cookie recipe.

You will need:
150g of butter
230g of brown sugar
1 egg
2 tsp of vanilla extract (not pictured- I'd left mine in Aberdeen)
125g of plain flour
1 tsp of baking powder
235g of rolled oats
175g of chocolate chips

(I actually halfed the recipe when making mine because I didn't want to have 30 cookies tempting me)

Cream the butter and sugar together using electric beaters (if you have them) and then add the egg and vanilla so should be all light and smooth. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt mixing well again so they are combined. I used my silicon spatula so I wasn't too rough on them.

Into the mixture add the oats and chocolate chips. Mix again until everything is evenly through the dough. I then rolled the mixture into small balls (like a ping pong ball) and placed them on baking paper on a tray.

I baked them in the oven at 180º for 20 minutes but honestly I think they could have done with just 15 minutes. I do like my biscuits quite crunchy though.

Obviously in a week all these are gone and this post is making me hungry. Fancy doing some more baking now. I've been unwell this week coming down with a really bad cold just in time for the start of term. 

Can we all just take a moment to appreciate how far my blog photography has come since my first baking post?


  1. Yum! These look really good. I never make oatmeal cookies, I definitely need to try.Feel like they may be marginally better for me! x

  2. These look amazing! I love oatmeal cookies, I just never make them and end up going for something much unhealthier, so I'll definitely be trying these! :)
