These are my new favorite oatmeal cookies! They have lots of healthy oats in them, along with chopped pecans, raisins, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. The recipe I’m sharing with you is adapted from one I found at Allrecipes.com. My version has more chocolate chips and a little less raisins. I made mine jumbo size, too, so the baking time is a little longer. These are thick and chewy and really yummy. And because the batter has 3 cups of oatmeal in it, they must be at least a little healthy, right? 🙂 This recipe makes about 23-24 jumbo-size cookies.
JUMBO OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES by NancyCreative, adapted from Allrecipes
- 1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour (I used unbleached flour)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in the oats, chocolate chips, raisins, and pecans, one ingredient at a time. Scoop dough with a 1/4 cup size measuring cup and drop dough onto the prepared cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes 23 to 24 jumbo cookies.
