Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Total Time:
40 min
20 min
20 min

about 36 cookies


Set 2 racks in the middle and upper thirds of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, stir the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, oats, and pecans together with a whisk or fork.

In a large bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together for 30 seconds until blended. Beat in the egg until smooth and barely fluffy. With mixer running on medium high, drizzle in the maple syrup, and vanilla until incorporated. Turn the mixer down to its lowest setting and gradually add the flour-oatmeal mixture. Blend just to combine, then mix in the chocolate chips.

Drop walnut-sized balls of dough onto a nonstick or parchment-lined cookie sheet at 3-inch intervals. With moistened fingers, flatten and round out the cookies a little. Bake for 9 minutes, turning the pan once for even baking. The cookies are done when they are lightly browned on top. Set the cookie sheets on a rack to cool.

Incredible cookie after a few mods...increased the flour to 1.5 cups, the chocolate chips to 1.25 cups and the butter to 12 tablespoons (1.5 sticks) item not reviewed by moderator and published
The cookies turned out awful!!! I do lots of baking, but these cookies stuck to the pan. I put cooking spray and that did not help. I will not make them again!!!! Terrible recipe!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
not one of my favorite recipes. Cookies took forever to bake and make sure you let the cookies sit on the baking sheet a few minutes after baking or they will fall apart on the way to the cooling rack. Texture is good but not the consistency of a classic oatmeal cookie. Lighter and I would add more chocolate chips. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very, very good! Crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside, perfect texture. Will be keeping this recipe for sure. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These sucked to the point of being nearly inedible. I followed the recipe exactly. They are super thin, crisp and light almost like low-fat alternative cookies. They are not rich and delicious like I'd hoped. Very disappointed. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Not my favorite. I like a chewier oatmeal cookie and these turned out very thin and crisp. I can't believe others said they took longer than 9 minutes to bake. set my timer for 8 (knowing my oven cooks fast) and my first batch already burnt. Ended up cooking 6 1/2 min. I can't taste the maple enough for it to be worth the cost of real maple syrup. They're fine but I'll be sticking to the recipe on the side of my Quaker Oats box (my standard) item not reviewed by moderator and published
This oatmeal cookie recipe is good. I've made it a few times. The maple syrup is a nice added touch. I have never gotten 36 cookies out of it, but rather 20! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made it with coconut oil and brown rice syrup in place of the butter and sugar...came out awesome! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Used walnuts instead of pecans & used combo of chocolate + peanut butter chips...YUM! Huge hit with the family. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It turned out really well. The maple syrup was a great add, though I think I will fold the pecans (I used walnuts) at the end with the chocolate chips... the mixer minced them a little too fine for my tastes. Good Stuff! item not reviewed by moderator and published
