Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
Here's a batch of semi-indulgence cookies after all those healthy muffins earlier! I called them 'semi' cos they have healthy oatmeal inside. Ha! who am I trying to deceive? I especially like these cookies with a hot cup of black coffee. Just one or two pieces will be enough to satisfy those little urges to snack on something crispy, chewy and partially sweet. Most recipes I tried earlier did not yield what I craved for. They are either too sweet, too soft for soft-baked, too burnt and not crispy and most of all, does not flatten when baked thus looking like a round bomb, when it's done.
120 gm butter
120 gm castor sugar
2 tsp vanilla
125 gm all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
A pinch of salt
100 gm semi-sweet chocolate chips
140 gm rolled oats
30 ml grape seed oil / olive oil
Pre-heat oven at 160 degree celcius.
Pulse all 'Ingredient A' together in a food processor.
Stir in chocolate chips and rolled oats until even.
Drizzle in the grape seed oil and mix until batter is soft and slightly sticky.
Drop 1 teaspoon of cookie batter on a greased baking sheet and flatten it with the back of a fork.
Repeat this process till baking sheet is full, leaving enough space in between each cookie batter to expand when baking.
Bake for 8 - 10 minutes until cookies smells great and lightly browned.
Leave to cool completely on a wire rack before storing in an air tight container.
