I had a favourite Crispy Oatmeal cookie recipe that I totally messed up. I only had half the amount of oats which isn't a good thing in an oatmeal cookie but with everything else already mixed I went ahead with the reduced amount of oats. As the batch was likely going to hell in a hand basket anyway I decided to add a bunch of chocolate chips.
Whoa! Our absolutely fav Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookie emerged from the mess up. We love them but they are almost candy like so keep that in mind.
They are also pretty good with a handful or so of chopped walnuts tossed in with the chocoalte chips.

How to Make Vanishing Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1Heat oven to 350°F - you will need 3 baking sheets lined with parchment paper - you really need the parchment paper.
  • 2Combine flour, baking powder, soda and salt. If you are using salted butter you can skip the salt
  • 3With mixer at low speed beat together butter and both sugars until very creamy. Increase speed and beat 1 minute longer, scrape sides as needed and add egg and vanilla, beat another 30 seconds.
  • 4Add half the blended dry ingredients at a time and mix well at med speed until mixture is smooth.
    Stir in the oatmeal and chocolate chips with a spatula or wooden spoon.
  • 5Now these do spread a lot. I get 9 cookies per sheet using a rounded tbsp of dough. I keep swearing I'll make them smaller next time.
    Bake no more than 2 sheets and rotate the baking sheets at 5 minutes. Check in another 4 o 5 minutes - 10 minutes total works in my oven.
    Cool on a rack (or straight on the counter top as I do)
