Great Grandma’s Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
Great Grandma Dora's recipe. This is the first recipe my mother ever taught me how to bake when I was eight years old; it has been one of my favorites ever since. In recent years I have started adding sourdough starter to the recipe an option that can help aid in digestibility in addition to using heritage wheat flour.
Servings: 6 dozen
- 1 C butter (2 sticks)
- 1 C brown sugar
- 1 C white sugar
- 2 organic eggs
- 1 1/2 C Sunrise Flour Mill Organic Flour (Our favorite flour to use is our Whole Wheat Pastry Flour made with White Sonora wheat. You would never know you are eating a whole wheat cookie! You can also use the Turkey Red Heritage Wheat flours as well.)
- 1 t baking soda
- 1 t salt
- 2 t vanilla
- 3 C Sunrise Flour Mill Organic Oat Cereal
- 1 C chocolate chips
- 1/2 C nuts optional
- 1/2 C Sourdough Starter optional
Preheat oven to 350 0F
Beat together butter and sugars until light and creamy.
Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.
In separate bowl mix together flour, soda, and salt.
Add dry ingredients gradually to wet ingredients and mix until well combined.
If baking immediately stir in oatmeal, chocolate chips and nuts (*optional)
Drop by teaspoonful or small cookie scoop onto greased or parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake 8-10 minutes in preheated oven.
Remove to cooling rack.
If using sourdough discard, mix all ingredients but oats, chocolate chips and nuts. Add starter and refrigerate 7 hours or
overnight. When ready to bake, add the omitted ingredients and bake following directions.
