Ingredients edit

Procedure edit

  1. Cream butter and both kinds of sugar with an electric mixer until smooth.
  2. Combine the water, eggs, and vanilla in a separate container.
  3. Gradually beat the egg mixture into the butter mixture until smooth.
  4. Combine the flour and baking soda, then sift this mixture into the butter mixture. Mix to form a dough.
  5. Use a sturdy mixing spoon to stir in the chocolate chips and 6 cups of the oats.
  6. Stir in additional oats until the dough is stiff and almost crumbly.
  7. If desired, chill dough until ready to bake.
  8. Scoop teaspoon-sized balls of dough and place on a greased or parchment-lined cookie sheet.
  9. Bake in a preheated 350°F (175C) oven for about 10 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the cookies comes out clean.

Notes, tips, variations edit

Notes edit

  • The whole recipe can be halved (but you'll just need to make more).
  • The measurements for the vanilla and baking soda are guesses, so you may need to adjust them.
  • Depending on the oven and the cookie sheets, you may need to adjust the temperature and/or time.

Ingredient substitutions edit

  • Add more chocolate chips (or other small candy) if desired.
  • Substitute other "filler" (wheat germ, flaxseed, nuts, seeds, etc.) for some of the oatmeal.
  • Whatever you do to adjust the chocolate chips and oatmeal, make sure the resulting dough is very stiff—this helps make the cookies chewy.

Allergies and sensitivities edit

If you have allergies and sensitivities, you are probably already familiar with making adjustments to your recipes. Sometimes, these adjustments change the taste of the resulting food. The following adjustments have all been successful:

Dairy-free edit

  • Use non-dairy butter substitutes (e.g., Earth Balance).
  • Use chocolate that is made without milk.

Gluten-free edit

  • Substitute a gluten free flour blend (e.g., Bob's Red Mill) for the all-purpose flour.
