Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies (King Arthur Flour)

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by senseicheryl

I recently placed an order with King Arthur Flour and when my order arrived, I received this recipe card. I didn't see it posted yet and it has a few interesting ingredients. "Given kids' affinity for cookies, you might as well temper them with some of the "good stuff" - in this case, oats with their soluble fiber and whole wheat flour with its extra vitamins, minerals and brand. Trust us: the kids won't know they're getting anything "healthy" in their favorite snack!"

I really love the texture of these cookies.
I used the ingredients I had on hand and therefore made the following changes: all purpose unbleached flour
rolled oats, 3/4cup chopped semi-sweet chocolate, 1/4cup currants, 1/2cup chopped dried cherries, 1/2cup chopped walnuts. Even without the third cup of nuts and chips this recipe could easily make 5 dozen cookies.
I plan to try them again with the whole wheat flour but I will not go over 2cups of chocolate nuts and cherries.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease (or line with parchment) two baking sheets.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter, shortening, sugars, vanilla, salt and vinegar. Beat in the egg, then the baking soda, flour and oats. Stir in the chips/nuts/fruit.
  3. Drop the dough, by tablespoonfuls, onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake the cookies for 12 to 14 minutes, until they're golden brown; the shorter amount of time for softer cookies, the longer amount for crunchier cookies. Remove the cookies from the oven and cool on a rack.
