Vanishing Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything or commented on my fellow bloggers’ posts. I’ve been re-organizing things lately, so time’s been a bit cramped. But, rest assured, I’ll be back to posting and commenting regularly witnin the next week. In the meantime, please enjoy this classic cookie recipe from Quaker Oats. They’re actually called vanishing oatmeal raisin cookies, but I substituted in chocolate chips. There would be no “vanishing” cookies in my house if I had used raisins.

(adapted from Quaker Oats)

1/2 c. plus 6 tbsp. butter, softened
3/4 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c. granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp.vanilla
1-1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt (optional)
3 c. Quakerยฎ Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1 c. chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350ยฐF. In large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Add oats and chocolate chips; mix well.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.

    While I do like oatmeal raisin cookies, oatmeal with chocolate chips happens to be a favorite of mine! And they would definitely vanish in a heartbeat around here. Good luck with your re-organizing. I’m in the midst of that myself. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have the book that this recipe comes from Yummy. I use it all the time. What’s really funny is I substitute chocolate chips in this recipe too but, I save a part of the batter for Marion and her love of raisins!

    Hope things calm down for you soon Yummy…thank you so much for sharing…

    A friend of mine makes this Quaker oats recipe with chocolate chips and it is absolutely delicious. The wholesomeness of the oats with chocolate chips is just lovely.

    Those look delicious! But I’m one of those rare people who don’t really like chocolate, so bring on the raisins!

    Chocolate and oats go SO well together! This is a wonderful recipe.

    I’m totally with you on the “no raisins” in my oatmeal cookies! I love chocolate chips and can see why these are called “Vanishing”! xx

    Haha…I make these without raisins, too…we’re definitely in agreement on this!!! Good to see you back ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m in concurrence with your family, no raisins! Chocolate chips are the way to go ๐Ÿ™‚

    A good oatmeal cookie is a beautiful thing. And high-five for using chocolate chips – that is a must. My family would rebel if I used raisins.

    As a kid, I used to make these with the raisins. But yes, now as an adult, I prefer them with chocolate chips or even dried mulberries.

    I’m not a raisin cookie fan either- they’d vanish much more quickly with chocolate chips. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I can’t decide if I like raisins or chocolate chips more. I might have to make both just to tell. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am not surprised these are called VANISHING. They look far toooooo good to not eat ๐Ÿ™‚

    Looks chewy and delicious and I bet your kids loved that you added chocolate chips instead of raisins. Or maybe if we want the cookies all for ourselves we add the raisins for the moms! Take Care, BAM

    Love you chocolate substitute. I too am in the midst of decluttering and reorganizing, a slow and tedious process.

    I’m a huge fan of oatmeal raisin cookies – but the chocolate chip ones would disappear a lot faster in my house too!

    Hope that organizing is going well! And these cookies remind me of ones my grandmother used to make. They may have been the same old recipe! I love a good oatmeal cookie and haven’t made any in so long. Thanks for the nudge! ๐Ÿ™‚
