No Fail Oatmeal Chocolate Chippers are chocolate chip cookies made with ground oatmeal. The dough has less fat than most and over the years I've wondered if it was a typo in the recipe. However, I kind of like the version as is even with the lower than usual amount of butter.
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats (80 grams)
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour (100 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (packed) golden brown sugar (110 grams)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (50 grams)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped, toasted walnuts
  • 4 oz milk chocolate, chopped into chunks
  • 3 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Grind oats in processor. Add flour, baking soda and salt and pulse to mix.
  3. Cream butter and both sugars in a medium bowl. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add flour mixture and stir until blended. Stir in walnuts and both types of chocolate.
  4. Using about 2 tablespoons of dough, form dough into balls and place on ungreased baking sheet. Flatten slightly. Bake until edges are golden brown, about 12 minutes. Cool on sheets 5 minutes. Transfer to racks; cool completely.
  5. Makes about 15 cookies
Make sure to measure the flour with a very light hand or weigh it. If you use too much flour, the dough will be too dry.
