chocolate chip oatmeal cookies
Chocolate chips are a big deal in our house. I pack them in the kids lunchboxes as a special treat and add them into basically every baked good I make, including these delicious Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.
These cookies are healthier and easier to make than the traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe because they’re made in one bowl, and naturally sweetened with maple syrup. Well, the chocolate chips sweeten them too of course!
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup chocolate chips
6 tablespoons tahini
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 1 baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
In a large bowl, using a wooden spoon, mix all ingredients until just combined.
Using a medium cookie scoop (about 2 tablespoons) scoop the cookie dough portions onto prepared baking sheet at least 1 inch apart. The dough will be more crumbly than sticky but don't worry because it will bind together once baked. If your batter is very dry, add 1-2 tablespoons of water.
Bake 10-11 minutes or just until the bottoms are golden brown.
Note: You can sub the tahini for any nut/seed butter. I only use it because you can't taste it in this recipe and its a safe-for-school spread.

Thank you! I will give it a go! I also used the table spoon but it was working. I will try the oil on my hands for sure. Thank you!

Thank you so much for making the cookies!! The dough will be more crumbly than a traditional cookie dough but if your finding yours too dry try adding 1-2 tablespoons of water or additional peanut butter.

Hiya, I not have baking mat or paper but can I used it as foil mat?

You sure can! Or you can simply grease the cookie sheet itself, although that means scrubbing after baking. If you cook them on foil keep an eye on them becasue they will cook faster and the bottoms will brown more and get crispy.
