Cookie Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies - Mama Bub

 

I suddenly feel the need to do something special for every holiday big and small, which explains why I’m drawn to so many cute green desserts for St. Patrick’s Day. What I’m not drawn to are the insane amounts of food coloring in each of these desserts. I’m not sure why food coloring is my particular hill to die on, but I’m not into it. I know there are natural alternatives, but that’s not helpful NOW, when I want a cookie NOW.

I decided cookies are special no matter their color and went with a reimagined classic. I recently saw this recipe, and was inspired to try baking with cookie butter, but that wasn’t exactly the flavor I was going for.

(Yes, I’m very aware of the irony of shunning food coloring in favor of an ingredient made from… cookies. I can’t explain my logic.)

I tried these tonight and they’re AMAZING. Make them right now!

Ingredients

1 stick butter, room temperature
½ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup cookie butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup old fashioned oats
2 cups chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.* Mix butter and sugars. Add cookie butter, vanilla and the egg until combined, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary. Add the flour, salt and baking soda. (I also added the oats at this time. I was using the paddle attachment, not the whisk, on my mixer so the oats weren’t obliterated by mixing.) Stir in chocolate chips.

Scoop into small balls (I used a small cookie scoop, and it was the perfect size for these cookies) and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

I found that the edges of these cookies browned quickly, so don’t make the mistake I’ve made in the past and add  all three cookie sheets to the oven at once. There’s nothing worse than burning ALL of your cookies. Fortunately, I didn’t burn a single one of these, but I still baked a single pan first.

*My oven runs hot, so I baked these at 325 for 12 minutes and they were perfect. I’m always burning cookies if I forget to lower recommended temperature a bit.
