Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is sure to be a hit – the secret ingredient is maple syrup, which lends a bit of complexity to the sweetness in the cookie. (If you are trying to be “healthy” substitute raisins for the chocolate chips).

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
makes 30 cookies

oatmealcookie.jpg1 1/2 flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 sticks (1 cup) softened butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Set aside to mix into wet ingredients later.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar and light and fluffy. Add the maple syrup and mix just until combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, then add the egg and vanilla. Beat just until all ingredients are incorporated. With the mixer on low, slowly add in the dry ingredients, being careful not to overbeat the dough. Add the oatmeal and chocolate chips.

Form into 1″ balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 12-15 minutes.

Enjoy!

    Hi! I just tried out this recipe on a whim, just felt like baking this weekend with my mom. These cookies are DELICIOUS! We wound up making 57 out of the basic recipe, so we’ve got these cute little 2-3 bite-size cookies. We’re going to bake the second batch a little longer to see if they can crunch up a bit, but they’re very good when they’re chewy and wonderful. Thank goodness for the Internet! Thanks for posting this, and I’ll keep you in mind for my next baking fix.

    I’d like to make these, but with molasses, for my daughter. Can I use the molasses instead of the honey and just add a teeny bit more sugar?

  4. Love the addition of maple syrup to chocolate chip cookies. Really adds a deeper flavor.

    Hello again! I ran out of maple syrup and used a sweet, light honey instead. They cookies are still (and probably always will be, no matter what sweetener you use) AMAZING! I made almost 50 this time. I cooked them a little longer than 15 minutes and they browned nicely. =)
