Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I wanted to make some cookies today to freeze because I know I have a busy couple of weeks coming up. I wanted something different than what I usually make, but I wanted a recipe that I knew would turn out and that we would like.

I decided to make a recipe that came from my older sister. I have made them before, but it has been quite a few years. I had actually forgotten about the recipe, but there it was buried in my recipe box. I am glad I found it again.

My sister has made this recipe for years, at least I assume she still makes it. I know she made these cookies all the time years ago. I don’t know where she got the recipe, but she labeled it Mrs. Fields Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Well, I think these cookies are very good, but I really don’t think they taste like a Mrs. Field’s cookie. So, I just call them Oatmeal Chocolate Chip.

I really like these cookies. They at least seem healthier because the have oatmeal in them. What my kids liked about them was the texture. You grind the oatmeal in the blender to make it fine like flour. This helps you get the flavor and benefit of oatmeal with out the texture of it. It is a great trick.

I made these this morning and I had them sitting out on the counter. We had to have a repairman, there was actually two, come to fix a seal on my oven this afternoon. When they left I sent them each with couple of these cookies. They were thrilled. I love it when I can give food away. I love to cook and it is a nice way to do something small for someone. I saved out just a few to eat and the rest will go into the freezer.

So, here is the recipe.

  9. Hi Lynn
    These look fab and I have a batch in the oven as I type, looking forward to tasting them after dinner. My husband is hard to please when it comes to cookies, he was nervous when I said I was trying out a new recipe as he loves my usual one!
    Anyway I wanted to ask if you always put an egg in your cookies? My current recipe adds milk and no eggs. Is ther a reason for using eggs and not milk.
    Eggs are so expensive over here (UK) and it would be good to have your advice
    Only 6 minutes to go :-)

  10. Lindsay, oh I hope you enjoy the cookies. In the US cookies almost always have eggs in them. The only recipe I have with out eggs has cream in it. I think you may be able to at least cut back on the eggs. Maybe use 1 instead of 2 and use maybe a couple tablespoons of milk or what would = the liquid of an egg. I would give it a try. We thought eggs were expensive here when the went close to $2 a dozen. What do you pay the equal to in the UK? I love to look at and try different recipes. I would love to see a cookie recipe from the UK. Are UK cookies like American one? I would love to see your recipe. If you have a chance maybe you could email it to me @ lynncw5@gmail.com. I really would love to try it. Let me know how you like the cookies you tried today.

  11. Thanks Lynn
    I’ll email you the recipe
    I loved the cookies, they were even better the next day. My husband is still enjoying them but I may have to win him over a bit more. I may try modifying it a bit more to his taste. The oatmeal adds a great texture though.

    As far as egg prices go I pay £2.60 for 12 medium sized free range eggs which at the current exchange rate is about $3.60.
    I admit these are free range eggs. I could get them cheaper if I bought caged hen eggs but I try to avoid that. I guess thats a choice I make.

    As far as the difference between Uk and US cookies I am not very sure. Despite having travelled to the US I can’t remember eating that many cookies. Our American Pastor loved them when I dropped some round at their house recently so I imagine they aren’t that different.

    Hope your office move goes well

  12. Ok..this is a GREAT recipie! Although I altered a bit to add some healthiness..well sorta..LOL
    I toasted seasame seeds,pumpkin seeds,flax seeds,almonds,cashews,sunflower seeds with a tiny bit of olive oil in the oven first then added the toasted nuts & seeds to the recipie ( a 2 small handfuls) along with a small handful or so of dark chocolate carob chips. They cam out not only delishus..but somewhat healthy toooo..my Hubbie Just LUVED them..A must try.
    But I will make this recipie as normal too as it is a great recipie .


  13. I just finsihed making these tonight and they are fantastic!
    My hubby and 5 year old have eaten a dozen of them already – and they are giving them rave reviews.
    Thanks for sharing this!!!!

  14. Making these this week as my son and I are studying about cookies. I love to have yummy cookies in the freezer to eat!

    I just wanted you to know that These are in the oven as I type!!! These are our FAVE cookies….I have made them no less than 10 times since finding it on your site! Thank you for sharing!!!!

  16. 0ooohhh yummy. Just made these. Split the batter (made with white chocolate chips as that’s all I had) into four. Baked 1/4 as they were, added apricots to the next 1/4, sultanas to the next and added nuts to the last quarter. Very happy family trying all the flavours now. Apricot with white chocolate has been deemed the yummiest flavour.
