Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies (King Arthur Flour)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

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!"

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.

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.
