Old fashioned rolled oats are traditionally used to bake oatmeal cookies. Using old fashioned oats will result in a heartier, chunkier cookie.
You can also use quick oats to bake oatmeal cookies. Quick oats are smaller than whole rolled oats and will result in a softer, chewier cookies.
How to make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Step 1: Prepare the dough
To begin, take half of the rolled oats (1.5 cups) and process them into a flour using the food processor or high-speed blender. Then, mix this oat flour with 1.5 cups whole rolled oats, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl and set aside.
Next, use an electric mixer to cream together the butter and brown sugar until soft and fluffy. Then, mix in the egg and then the vanilla extract.
Lastly, fold the dry ingredients into the wet using a spatula. Then, fold in the chocolate chips.
Step 2: chill dough and form balls
Next, cover the bowl and place the dough in the fridge. It should chill for at least 30 minutes.
While the dough is chilling, preheat the oven to 325F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Once the dough is chilled, use a 2 tbsp scoop to scoop the dough into about 14 dough balls.
Step 3: Bake
Next, place the dough balls on the baking sheet with space between each one and top with a sprinkle of flakey sea salt. Then, bake for fourteen to sixteen minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely on a wire rack.
Allow the cookies to cool completely, then, store them in an air-tight container on the counter for up to 5 days or up to 10 days in the refrigerator. You can also freeze these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
You can freeze the oatmeal cookie dough balls prior to baking. I recommend rolling the dough into balls and then freezing on a sheet pan.
Once the balls are frozen you can place them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 6 weeks. To bake from frozen, preheat the oven to 300F and bake for 18-20 minutes.
