c is for chocolate chip oatmeal cookies


I love this recipe! It was originally printed years ago in the Georgia Straight, our local free weekly and I’ve made some additions and I think it’s a near-perfect cookie recipe. I like to keep the cookies in tins to keep them soft. I made them last night in a fit of procrastination. It was much easier making these cookies than gathering work for my portfolio!

These can also be easily made into vegan cookies since there are no eggs in this recipe. Just replace the butter for vegan margerine or Earth Balance and use vegan chocolate chips. Yum!

    About how many do these make for you? I’m all for tasty cookies like these since they usually freeze well. The boiling water is an interesting addition I don’t think i’ve done in a cookie before – how does the texture end up from this?

    i think this recipe made about 28 cookies or so. i’ve never used boiling water in a cookie either, but i didn’t notice anything strange. the cookies are nice and soft but i think it’s due to keeping them in tins.

    That bit about the boiling water is interesting! I too am a great fan of chocolate chip oatmeal cookies–much more fun than regular ole chocolate chippers, I think–and will have to give your recipe a go. Plus, how can I resist that coconut? Mmm.

    I’m back to Tag you with the 23/5 meme if you feel like going back in time! I finished mine today and listed what is needed on my site if you are up to it!

    Yes. These biscuits were fit, and actually improved with age (not that they lasted all that long in our house!). I'm also intrigued by the boiling water, though: why like that, and how does it affect the recipe?

    I made these yesterday, omitting the coconut because I added about a cup of chopped hazelnuts. Wow!!! they are good. Thank you so much, and I’m so very glad I trusted you on the oats.
