Monster Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

I showed these cookies to Lily right after her nap and boy did she smile in delight.  She said...

"Mama , it looks so good and it is big" . "I like when you make cookies mama" .

I can't blame the kid, I would like and love the person who would always bake cookies for me. These huge, chunky, chewy and delicious cookies are so easy to make.  Instead of using sweetened chocolate bark, I used regular chocolate chips. Melted it, cooled it and chopped 'em into pieces. Not to be complicated in the kitchen but I wanted to see if the result would be the same or better.

The result. I fell in love with the cookie. There were huge chunks of chocolate and small pieces that just beautifully and deliciously incorporated with the oatmeal cookie.


Ingredients:

3 cups old fashioned oats
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup, unsalted butter softened
1 cup white sugar ( can substitute for splenda or raw sugar)
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup, chopped walnuts
8 oz bag of semi sweet chocolate chips.

Directions:

Line a cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper. Melt the 8oz. bag of chocolate chips in increments of 10-15 seconds, mix  between melting. Or you can melt the chocolate chips in a bowl  on top of a pot of hot water. Transfer the melted chocolate chips on the prepared cookie sheet. Spread to make a layer. Let it cool, set aside and let it harden. When the chocolate chips solidify, roughly chop it into chunks. It doesn't have to be uniform. Mine had small and big chunks.


Line your cookie sheet with parchment or silicone liner , set aside.Cream butter and sugars until smooth and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Mix the flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.  Add the dry (flour mixture) ingredients into the creamed butter mixture. Stir in oats and walnuts. Fold in the chopped chocolate chunks. Place the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour. 


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Using an ice cream or cookie scooper ( I used a 2 tbsp ice cream scooper), drop the cooled, rounded dough onto your prepared cookie sheet, at least 2 inches apart.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. 


These cookies are gooey, chunky and oh..delicious! These monster oatmeal chocolate cookies will surely win anybody's palate. What's not to love? 


Though I seldom meet a cookie that I don't love, there are some exceptions to the rule. I'm not a big fan of really hard cookies or cookies that claim to be chocolate chip cookie but you rarely see the chocolate..chocolate chips that go hide and seek on you. I guarantee you that ..THIS cookie is not the "hide and seek chocolate chip" type of cookie.


I would love to connect with you!
