The people have voted (on IG) and you couldn’t wait for this oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe! And I honestly don’t blame you.
Because this oatmeal walnut chocolate chip cookie is my official go-to dessert now. I tweaked this recipe five times before deeming it perfect. Changing the amount of flour, the cooking temperature, the cooking time, until it was perfect. And thus, I present to you this perfect cookie.
It is crispy on the outside edges, but gooey on the inside. The oats give it a dense texture, while the walnuts give it a bit of crunch. All I have to say is, you must make this. You are going to totally love it.
A few notes about the recipe first-
Make sure you follow the directions regarding the dry vs wet ingredients. It’s super important that you cream together the sugar, eggs , vanilla extract and butter. I didn’t used to do this because I thought it was just a tedious extra step. BUT I learned in my baking class that this step is actually super important. It creates an emulsification so that the cookie holds together better.
The other step to be sure not to skip is to put the dough in the refrigerator. This is going to firm up the dough a bit and you will thank me later when the middle of your cookies are perfectly gooey.
There is nothing more satisfying or comforting than a warm, delicious, gooey chocolate chip cookie. So today, tonight, whenever you make these, grab a big glass of milk, a few cookies, and just enjoy them.
Have an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie cookie tonight on me 🙂
