How to Make Oat Flour from Oatmeal

These aren’t your average oatmeal-loaded CCC’s. Rather than stir the oats into the cookie dough, they’re first blended in a food processor to make a coarse oat flour.

The blended oatmeal alters the consistency of the cookies by making them softer, while at the same time eliminating big chunks of oats to make for more even baking.

Do You Need to Refrigerate Cookie Dough?

Unlike my go-to recipe for Secret Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies, this recipe doesn’t require refrigerating the dough prior to scooping and baking the cookies. But you still get magical results!

Cookie Mix-Ins

Choose between chocolate chips or chunks, which are a classic pair with all things oats, or add a nutty crunchy with chopped walnuts or pecans.

For a sweet, surprising addition, Heath toffee pieces are the winner! They melt slightly into the dough and blend seamlessly into the oats-meets-chocolate flavor profile.

How to Make Soft and Chewy Cookies

My number 1 tip for cookie baking success, and particularly soft and chewy cookies is to underbake them!

Remove the cookies from the oven when they are barely set in the centers and let them continue baking on the hot cookie sheets for 5 minutes outside the oven. The carryover baking will firm up the centers and lead to the perfect soft and chewy cookie consistency.
