Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

After a long day at our annual Sports Day, I finally came home to chow on some food and BAKE with the roomies. We decided to make oatmeal cookies, because we lurveeee the texture of oats in cookies. I wanted to bake the oatmeal cookies I made before last year, but I couldn't find the recipe. What a shame, because let me tell you, they were D-E-LICIOUS!!

This is the recipe for the chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, adapted from blogger Baking Bite's oatmeal cookie recipe.

-1 cup whole wheat flour
-2 cups instant oatmeal
-1 tsp baking powder
-1/2 tsp baking soda
-1/2 tsp salt
-2 tbsp butter, room temperature
-1/2 cup white sugar
-1/2 cup brown sugar
-1 large egg
-1 egg white
-2/3 cup vanilla yogurt
-1 cup chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 325F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking poweder, baking soda, and salt.
3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars.
4. Beat in the egg and egg white, followed by the yogurt and vanilla extract.
5. Stir in the flour mixture and the oats so that no streaks of flour remain.
6. Stir in the chocolate chips.
7. Drop batches onto the baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes (depending on the level of crispiness).

My roomie Hannah suggested that next time, we should try this recipe with less flour (1/2 cup less) so that the texture of oatmeal would be more apparent, and I couldn't agree more. The cookies are quite yummy and chewy, but adding less flour would probably make them less "bread-like."
