So I am posting a post from my family blog since this week has just been crazier then crazy(painting our kitchen cabinets, which I cannot wait to reveal) and I think everyone needs to try this recipe! So here it goes…here’s the big confession…
My name is Jamie….and I’m addicted to cookies. Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I love to bake them.
I love to eat the cookie dough.
I especially love eating cookies about five minutes after they’ve come out of the oven with a big glass of milk while they are still gooey and chewy.
So here’s my big confession: I can’t STOP with one cookie. One cookie leads to another, and that cookie leads to the next…and so on. But who’s counting right?
Anyways I think I found the PERFECT chocolate chip cookie recipe. I’ve changed the recipe up just a little bit…but only for the better! I’m definitely not one of those people who won’t share their favorite recipe(doesn’t that totally bug?!)…anyways here it is:
Did you make this recipe?

Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies


  • 2 cups butter( I use 1 cup margarine and 1 cup butter or butter flavored Crisco)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 cups of flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 4 cups old-fashioned oats (grind these in a blender till almost a powder, but still a little chunky)
  • 2 bags Hershey’s milk chocolate chips
  • 2 cups nuts optional( I never add nuts!)
  • My secret ingredient: 1 Symphony Bar(The Big One) w/ Almond and Toffee Chips (Frozen)
    -After you grind oats in blender set aside and put frozen chocolate bar in blender and GRIND.
    (If you don’t have symphony bar, you could just grind up chocolate chips…)


Cream butter and sugars in a large bowl. Add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla and mix well. Mix flour, salt, soda, powder, and ground outs in a separate bowl. Gradually add flour mixture while mixing. Gently stir in chocolate flakes (from bar) and chocolate chips.

Scoop onto a lined cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 8 min. They may come out looking a little doughy but they will harden up fast, so DON’T over bake them. Enjoy!

I’m telling you these cookies are amazing…you have to try them. We bake cookies every Sunday, and these are usually the ones we end up making. This recipe does make a lot of cookies, so I usually 1/2 it if I’m not planning on giving them away. Sometimes I freeze 1/2 the batch for emergencies as well. :)
Enjoy! :)

  2. The best chocolate chip cookies I make are made with powdered egg (without the water). I watched a segment on America's Test Kitchen and long story short the water in the egg makes the cookies crispy instead of chewy. Also they recommended the Ghirardelli 60% chips for their taste and unique shape perfect for melting into every bite. Try it – you won't be disappointed.

  3. I will definately try this recipe! My husband ONLY likes it when I make chocolate chip cookies…just so he can eat the dough!

  12. I’ll try this recipe soon! I too love (love, love!) chocolate chip cookies!  I have my favorite recipe but am interested to see how the oat flour and ground Symphony bar will affect the cookie as well as using half/butter/half margarine. Thanks for sharing!
