Cooking with Kids: Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Today the girls and I made chocolate chip oatmeal cookies!  The cookie photo on top is by one of the girl's....she did go over board with pushing the chocolate chips in didn't she?  I am a big fan of oatmeal cookies because of it's crispy texture on the outside and the chewiness on the inside.  However, I don't like how much butter goes into it but that's why it tastes so nice! lol.

 Little fingers hard at work!

What will you need:
  • 250grams of softened butter, cubed
  • 1 cup of brown sugar (I prefer light)
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp of vanilla essence
  • 1.5 cups of plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 3 cups of oats (rolled or quick oats)
  • 1 cup of chocolate chips
  • Optional:  for more chocolate I just cut up 1/2 cup of a chocolate block in little pieces.


  • Firstly preheat your oven at 170 C degrees
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and both sugars until smooth
  • Then gradually beat the eggs one at a time and then add in vanilla
  • Add all the dry ingredients and combine til well blended
  • Mix in the chocolate chips and chocolate pieces until well combined
  • On a lined baking sheet tray, drop spoonfuls and decorate with a chocolate chip on top (if you want).
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes
  • Cool on rack and enjoy!

On a different note:

 Check out what I got delivered last night!  A new masterchef kitchen!  It's got a fridge, an oven, a microwave and accessories and a kitchen sink to wash all the dirty stuff after cooking a big pretend meal lol.

It's not for me really...it's for the kids that cook with me hehehe


  1. Yum! I love oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! I will have to try this recipe. The crispy,chewiness of oatmeal cookies is the best...and it makes me feel like I'm eating a little more healthy if I have oatmeal in there-ha.

    My daughter would flip out if we got a kitchen like that. Love it!

  2. Oh you had little helpers again. Cookies look great!

  3. All I need is a big glass of milk and a few of those cookies....What a cute kitchen for your helpers.

  4. that's what is great about kids -- they go crazy with things like adding chocolate chips, with no concerns about what is right or wrong.

  5. more hands makes yummy cookies! Beautiful kitchen, love it:)
