Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies are one of the easiest sweet treats to bake. I was looking for an eggless oatmeal cookie recipe and came across quite a few. By making slight modifications, I ended up with a simple and chewy oatmeal cookie that was hard to resist. You can use these cookies to make whoopie pies using a hazelnut spread (like Nutella) or even use light whipped cream (you can freeze them for 10-15 minutes until they set) sandwiched between two cookies.


1/2 cup (or 1 stick) unsalted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 cup boiling water
1 cup quick oats
1/3 cup raisins
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped walnuts


In a mixing bowl, add melted butter (room temperature) , brown sugar and vanilla extract. Whisk until all the ingredients turn smooth and fluffy.

Add the sifted flour, salt, baking soda mixed with boiling water and mix all the ingredients.

Stir in the oats, raisins, semi-sweet chocolate chips and walnuts (the cookie batter might seem slightly wet and sticky, thats ok).

Preheat the oven to 350° F.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and drop the cookie dough using a tablespoon (or teaspoon for smaller cookies) and slightly flatten it. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 5-10 minutes. Serve warm and chewy oatmeal cookies.

Makes 20 medium sized cookies.
