Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

@fridley thanks for sharing this recipe:

Cream 1 cup of margarine, 1 cup of brown sugar, and 1 cup of white sugar

Add 2 eggs and 1 tsp vanilla essence

Add 1 1/2 Cup of self raising flour, 2 cups of rolled oats, 1 packet of chocolate chips (I like to use dark chocolate chips)

Place spoonfuls on baking tray leaving room for spreading
Bake in medium oven for about 12 mins

You can add more rolled oats if they are spreading too much.
If you like them crunchy, cook them until they are a rich caramel colour.
If you like them chewy, cook them until firm. They will be a little soft when warm.

Gram's recipe says that this will make 72 cookies but this will depend on your self discipline... how much dough is eaten before it makes its way to the oven... and how small you make the cookies. James (@fridley) added up to 2 cups more oats than the recipe...



  1. This looks great - no self discipline, often eat the dough before it gets into the over, so mine might yield less. Might be good with several different kinds of chocolate mixed in...

  2. oh that's incredible - great comment - i am dough eater too - self discipline being contructed as i type x
