    Sharlene~W's Note:

    This great little chocolate chip cookie is made with ground rolled oats. What is the secret ingredient?--one I have never seen in a chocolate chip cookie recipe before?--lemon juice. The lemon juice reacts with the baking soda to make a softer, chewier cookie.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Process rolled oats in a food processer or blender until finly ground.
    3. 3
      Combine ground oats, flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a mixing bowl.
    4. 4
      In a second bowl, cream butter, sugar, vanilla and lemon juice together with electric mixer.
    5. 5
      Add eggs and beat until fluffy.
    6. 6
      Stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture, blending well.
    7. 7
      Add the chocolate chips and nuts to the dough and mix well.
    8. 8
      Using about 1/4 cup dough for each cookie, scoop round balls and place 2 1/2-inches apart on to parchment-lined baking sheet--a ice cream scoop works well.
    9. 9
      Bake until cookies are lightly browned, 16-18 minutes. (Time will depend on how large you make the cookies--I actually prefer them about 1/8 cup dough per cookie and they cook in about 10 minutes).
    10. 10
      Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
    11. 11
      Store in a zip-top container to keep them soft and chewy.

      Very tasty cookies. I used pecans instead of walnuts and they came out great.

      I received this recipe in the mail as well. I made them w/o using a food processor, I just used straight quick oats. These were THE BEST cookies I have ever made or tasted! I'm not sure if it's the parchment paper(this was the first time I had used parchment paper)but they looked so beautiful, just like from a bakery & tasted awesome. I got the greatest compliments, even from people who weren't big sweet eaters. I definitely recommend using parchment paper, I think it was the magic touch!! And no need for a food processor using quick oats!! BTW:I didn't add walnuts due to food allergies. Update: I discovered you can substitute 1/2 ts of vinegar for the 1 ts lemon juice, still the most awesome cookies!

      Nice cookie, but not the most flavorful. I have several choc. chip recipes I like more and are easier to make - don't need to use my food processor. They are soft.
