i think there's room for infinite "best chocolate chip cookie" recipes. doesn't everybody have a recipe for the BEST ones? which one is ze best?!?!?! gah. one of life's greatest mysteries...
weLLLLLL, these are the BEST ones that i've ever made, personally. hands down. mmhmm. totally. yes.
i'd be confident entering these in a cookie contest for the chocolate chip + oat category.
chocolate chippers with oats are the way to go, i say!
the other secret is coconut sugar! i just recently discovered it. maybe i'm cuhrazy, but i could totally tell the difference with these cookies. the sweetness is just richer & deeper than when you use white sugar or white + brown sugar. something about it.....i dunno. but i was over the moon for them! pete, too!
give them back to meeeeeeee.
The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes 18 small, plump cookies!
- 1 cup (+ 2 TB) all-purpose flour
- 1 cup coconut sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 egg
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. sea salt
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup oats
- 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips (or more, heHehHHHH)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a non-stick cookie sheet, just to be safe. [I'm real paranoid about burnt cookie bottoms.]
Cream butter and sugar with paddle attachment in stand mixer or with hand mixer. Add egg and vanilla and mix until smooth.
Add dry ingredients slowly, and mix. Add oats, chopped nuts, and chocolate chips, mixing in between each addition.
Drop spoonfuls of dough on the baking sheet in 4 rows of 3, spread evenly. Bake for EIGHT and a HALF minutes, mayyyybe 9 minutes. Seriously though....those extra 30 seconds....who needs em! You want them a bit soft in the center, trusttttttt.
Sprinkle with just a tiny touch of extra sea salt on top.
Please gobble this down while they're still warm! With milk, if you're into that stuff. :)
