Recipe: Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

oatmeal chocolate chip dough

The house is very very quiet. Picky Princess got new skates for Christmas from Grandma and Grandpa, so she and Sexy Husband are out in the chill skating. Foodie Baby is sleeping upstairs. The peacefulness brought a deep sense of….cookies. They were begging to be made!

My Little Family has been overwhelmingly gracious about being back to a life full of healthy food. I’ve barely heard a peep this week about meals featuring lentil salad, roasted kale, and bok choy. I know the peace will end soon; with pink cheeks begging for hot chocolate, giggling girls, piano practicing and the singing from the Studio that NEVER ends.

And I will greet the madness with…cookies.

chewy and easy

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

makes 3 dozen

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup coarse raw sugar(demerara) use brown sugar if you prefer

1 egg

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 cup spelt flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup oats

handful each of shredded coconut, pecans, chocolate chips (measure carefully 😉

Directions

Preheat oven to 350. Line 2 baking sheets with silpat or parchment paper. Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl with a wooden spoon. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until combined. Drop by teaspoon full onto baking sheets. Bake for about 12 minutes. They will be slightly golden on the bottom, and chewy in the middle.

How’s that for easy?
