Whole Wheat Toasted Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies-the toasted oats and whole wheat flour add a slight nutty flavor to these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. They are a favorite at our house!
People always want to know what my favorite cookie is. I can never answer that question. It stumps me every time. We have close to 200 cookie recipes on my site and I love them all. I can’t imagine picking a favorite. I try to narrow it down and usually say a cookie with oatmeal. I have several favorite oatmeal cookie recipes so it really isn’t picking a favorite, but close enough:) I just love the texture and flavor oatmeal adds to cookies.
My new favorite cookie, for the moment, it will change tomorrow, is my Whole Wheat Toasted Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. Again, I love oatmeal in my cookies and the toasted oatmeal makes these cookies extra special.
The secret to these cookies is toasting the oatmeal before stirring it into the cookie batter. To toast the oats, I spread the oats on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes until the oats are slightly golden and have a nutty aroma. I let the oats cool while I whip up the cookie dough.
To enhance the toasted flavor, I also use white whole wheat flour. Whole wheat flour gives the cookies a little nutty texture that goes great with the toasted oats.
The chocolate chips are the finishing touch to my Whole Wheat Toasted Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. Chocolate is always a good idea! I love biting into my cookie and getting a burst of chocolate. These cookies have it all!
