Recently I have been CRAVING chocolate chip cookies.
I decided to scour the internet for some “healthier” options
and after searching…
and searching, I finally threw in the towel and created my own recipe
using what little baking “know how” I have!
These were a HUGE hit in our house and I know will be a hit in yours too!
These Oooey Gooey Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
are soft on the inside with the perfect hardness on the outside!
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp corn starch
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp unsalted butter at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cut unsweetened apple sauce
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups oats (quick or old fashioned)
3/4 cup of chocolate chips (any kind you want!)
Now that you have the ingredients,
let’s whip up some cookies!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Whisk together flour, corn starch, baking soda and salt in a bowl then set aside.
Using a mixer, mix the butter, sugar, brown sugar until well blended and creamy,
then add the egg, vanilla and applesauce.
Stir in the flour mixture in the bowl that you set aside by HAND then add the oats.
Get those hands dirty and blend the ingredients together SUPER well!
Add the chocolate chips!
Now it’s time to bake your cookies!
Drop the dough onto your baking sheet
(mine were about 1 tablespoon each),
then bake about 8-10 minutes until the edges of the cookies are LIGHT brown.
(You do NOT want to overcook the cookies!)
Keep these super yummy cookies on the counter in an air tight container!
(I bet they won’t be there for long!)
