Sweet Sundays: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe


Last night I had a sweet tooth. Normally I like watching Cops on Saturday at 8pm, but if I didn’t get my sugar fix, I may have been the one in cuffs by the end of the evening. I’m kidding – like 80% kidding.

So while I listened to Cops from the kitchen, I whipped up my favorite oatmeal chocolate chip recipe. They have a nice crunch on the outside, but inside, they’re gooey, chewy and delightful.

The recipe is below. Enjoy!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 ½ cups chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Combine flour, cornstarch, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg & salt in a large bowl, set aside
  • In a large bowl, cream together butter & sugars until fluffy
  • Add egg whites & eggs in, one at a time
  • Stir in the vanilla
  • Gradually stir in the flour mixture, scraping the sides of the bowl as you go
  • Stir in the oats & chocolate chips
  • Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes
  • Let the cookies stay on the cookie sheet for 5 mins after taking out of the oven
  • Transfer cookies to cookie rack to continue cool
  • Eat them all yourself! Ha, kidding – like 80% kidding 😉

**Makes approximately three dozen cookies**
