These are the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies you, your Momma, your Grandma and your Grandma’s Daddy ever tasted!
Seriously. The title can not lie (it’s like incapable or some shit).
I had been on the hunt for YEARS (really, close to a decade) for the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookie because it’s Bo’s favorite and he really doesn’t ask for much. I thought that I had it, Bo always requested it, the guys at his work always looked forward to them. They were the shit. Until I tasted Jen’s (my cousin via Bo). She kicked my cookies ass to the curb, stomped on them a bit, dug her heel and spit while she was walking away. The abuse was rough, I’m surprised she didn’t need a cigarette afterwards. Anyway, here’s Jen’s recipe, which she actually got in a high school home-ed class (go figure).
Don’t doubt it by the ingredients, just make them. You’ll never go back.
Update: I have no idea what was wrong me the day I first wrote this post. I’m guessing I was suffering from some severe exhaustion. My first reaction was to erase it all and rewrite it in a civilized fashion, but I was laughing too hard. That’s when I decided to just let it ride so that when I find it again in another few years, I’ll have another good laugh. Thanks for understanding!
Here’s your printable:
- ½ cup butter, softened
- ½ cup white sugar
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- ¾ cup flour
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup rice crispy cereal
- ¼ cup chocolate chips
- Preheat your oven to 350ºF with a rack in the middle position. Prep two baking sheets with parchment paper or your sil-pat mat's.
- Cream the butter and sugar, add the egg, and beat until combined.
- Add the baking powder, baking soda, salt and flour and beat until no dry flour is left. Add the rolled oats, rice crispy cereal and mix until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
- Place cookies with about 1½ inches between them (I get 12 per sheet). Bake for about 12 minutes, until the cookies are a nice golden brown around the edges, and light brown in the center.
- Let the cookies cool on the sheet for a few minutes, then move to a cooling rack.
