Triple Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

The cookie monster has landed! Nothing beats a good cookie especially a chocolatey one. After my brownie feast, I moved on to cookies. This is the first of my 'cookie monster adventure' I found this great recipe from the Brown Eyed Baker. Again I reduced the sugar in the recipe and it was still a little too sweet for me. I used to have a very sweet tooth but that seems to have changed recently. Having said that, it was so delicious, I couldn't stop eating them!

Cream butter and sugar, then beat eggs one at a time.
Add in flour mixture

Stir in rolled oats
Add the chocolate chips

3 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
340g butter
1 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

  • Preheat oven to 180C.
  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and set aside.
  • Cream butter and sugar until pale and creamy.  Add in the eggs, one at a time and mix in the vanilla extract.
  • Gradually beat in the flour mixture. Do not overmix.
  • Stir in rolled oats, followed by the chocolate chips.
  • Drop cookies on to a baking sheet and bake for about 12-15 minutes until it's slightly browned and set on the outside but still soft and puffy in the middle.
  • Allow to cool completely on baking sheets.
