This is a recipe from Lauren. The most memorable moment was when she called me from the grocery store asking what blended oats were. These cookies are a very tasty version of oatmeal. Blending the oatmeal in the blender takes away the oatie-chunkiness regular oatmeal cookies have. Plus, they have two types of chocolate, and zero raisins.
Unfortunately tonight I made them and forgot the flour, for the millionth time this year (I left it out while transcribing the recipe), so my batch was ruined. Tomorrow will be take-two, with the ever helpful flour...
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
1 C butter softened
1 C sugar
1 C brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 C flour
2 1/2 C blended-oatmeal (blend in a blender)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 chocolate bar, grated (it might be fun to use a flavored chocolate bar, like mint chocolate or chocolate orange)
2 C chocolate chips (1 package)
Roll into balls and bake for 10 minutes. They tend to overcook, so ten minutes is usually just right. Cool on racks.
