Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Posted on Updated on

My husband and I are trying to watch our weight but he keeps asking me to make these cookies.  So I made a big batch, cooked only a few for him, and made the rest for my co-workers for work tomorrow.  That way he can satisfy his craving and not break our diet too much.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup softened butter

1/2 cup white sugar

1 cup of packed brown sugar

2 tsps vanilla extract

2 eggs

1 1/4 cups gluten-free flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

3 cups rolled oats

1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper.  Cream butter and sugars until well mixed.  Add eggs and vanilla, cream again.  Mix all dry ingredients in a separate bowl except chocolate chips.  Add dry ingredients in small batches, running the mixer on medium low to prevent a snowstorm of flour.  Once all dry ingredients are incorporated, add chocolate chips and mix until just combined.  Place in heaping tablespoonfuls on the baking sheet leaving at least 2 inches between each cookie as these spread.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Do not over bake, leave the centres slightly under baked to maintain the chewiness of the cookies.  If you like crisper cookies, just bake them more.

Hope you like these cookies.  Cheers, Michele
