Oatmeal Chocolate Chips Cookies

Get to try this wonderful recipe from Evan's Kitchen where she bakes the Oatmeal & Raisin Cookies. As Reyon doesn't like to eat raisin, I replaced it with his favourite tiny chocolate chips. And I also used the chocolate flavored horlicks which I got as a free sample from buying bread. So afterall, mine became something like chocolate and chips cookies.

At first, I still worried that reyon might not like the taste or texture of the rolled oats but luckily he did not notice it and happily munching his end-products. Like what Evan said, this is indeed a very easy to prepare cookies and it would really filled your kitchen with that wonder aroma the you can't resists. Do give it a try and I am sure you can come up with whatever favour of oatmeal cookies that you prefer.

Ingredients: (click link for original Evan's Recipe)
100g Brown Sugar
125g Butter, soften
190g Plain Flour
65g Chocolate/Plain Horlicks(malted milk powder)
1/4 Teaspoon Bicarbonate Of Soda
50g Rolled Oats
80-100g Mini Baking Chocolate Chips
1 Egg

1. Beat sugar and butter on medium speed using electric beaters until light and creamy. (about 5-8 minutes)
2. Next add in the egg and continue to beat until well combine.
3. Add slowly fold in the sifted flour mixture(flour, bicarbonate of soda and chocolate horlicks) in three batches until well corporate.
4. Lastly stir in the combined chocolate chips and rolled oats in two batches and mix well.
5. Drop 1/2 Tablespoon of mixture onto a lined baking tray and flatten it slightly using a wet spoon or fork.(make sure to leave some space in between each cookies or else they will expand and stick to each other after baked)
6. Bake in a preheated 160 degree oven for 20 minutes.
7. Leave it to cool completely before storing in air-tight container.

For my case, I made 1/2 Tablespoon of mixture to produce small cookies that are easier for my son to munch.

The texture of the cookies will be crunch on the outside but a bit chewy and moist in the center.

  4. ellena, forgot to ask u something. how come your unbaked cookies look so neat one? i tot its supposed 2b like, a lump of mixture. instead yours look like those that can be shaped by hand. amazing leh...

  5. Oh.. don't know leh.. i just wet my hand with some water.. then i can roll 1/2 tablespoon of the mixture leh.. that's y i think maybe the dough is too dry or wat.. it look stick..but then i can still roll it with wet hand.. :)

  6. Hello there(:

    Tried the recipe twice but my cookies burnt at 15mins. I placed it on the top rack, away from the heating element that was on the bottom but it still burnt. Btw, I'm using a black baking tray like this:

    Do you know how I can prevent the cookies from burning? Thanks alot!
