This is something that I have debated for a long time about sharing, and I almost didn’t share this today. But I decided that it’s so good, I can not, not share it with my wonderful friends. So here it is my secret weapon, my secret recipe.
These cookies are delicious, no… beyond delicious. Truly mind-blowing.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 1/2 c Quick Oats, blended until fine
1 c Sugar
1 c Butter, room temperature (very important, completely melted runny butter or cold butter will not incorporate properly and the cookies will suffer, trust me on this: room temp.)
1 c Brown Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
2 c Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1 c Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
3/4 c Milk Chocolate Chips
3/4 c Vanilla Chocolate Chips
Half of a 6.8 oz Hershey’s Symphony Bar with Almond and Toffee bits, broken into little pieces (the now not so Secret Ingredient)
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Blend the Quick Oats in the blender. Set aside. Add the butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Mix together until the consistency is smooth.
2. Mix together the flour, oats, soda, and salt in a separate bowl until combined. Add flour mixture, into the sugar mixture, 1/3 at a time, mixing each until incorporated. Add in the chocolate chips and the bits of the chocolate bar.
3. Measure out the cookie dough balls and bake for 8-12 minutes. Enjoy!
This recipe makes a lot and if you don’t feel like eating that many cookies at one time, you can make cookie dough balls and freeze them in a zippered plastic bag, for baking or for snacking on later (which is generally what I do, and when we go to make some actual cookies -same temperature and duration as above- there’s almost not enough to make a dozen… oops!).
Well there it is, I hope that you love it and that it brings you the joy we get when we eat them.
