{ oatmeal chocolate chip cookies }

As I sit here and write this blog post, I am enjoying a hot cup of Chai tea and a gooey, freshly baked oatmeal cookie. Isn’t that the best way to spend a gloomy afternoon? Baking, listening to ADELE and then relaxing and blogging :) I thought i’d share with you a great recipe for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for you to enjoy anytime!

What you will need:
1 1/2 cups rolled oats 1/2 cup flaked coconut
1 3/4 cups flour 1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda 1 cup baking margarine
1 cup white sugar 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg 1 tsp vanilla
However many chocolate
chips you want :)

First thing to do is preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit. Combine dry ingredients [oats, flour, baking soda & baking powder] except sugars, and set aside.

In your mixer, or a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until fluffy.

Next, beat in egg until blended. Add vanilla and coconut, mixing well.
Add dry ingredients. Mix just until blended.

Now for the best part..chocolate chips :) You can add however many you like! I added a few handfuls. { just a little tip: mix in chocolate chips by hand, because a mixer will often times crush the chocolate chips } *Also feel free to mix it up by adding nuts, raisins or dried cranberries! I ended up adding dried cranberries to a few of the cookies and they tasted delicious :)Roll into balls, and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Flatten slightly.

Now pop ‘em in the oven and bake for 11-13 minutes.


with love, peace and happiness,
