Quarantine Cookies


Since we are all inside at home (except those amazing people who are out there keeping us safe. I’m talking about you nurses, doctors, police officers, firefighters, etc etc etc), let’s bake! These cookies are oatmeal chocolate chip, however the dough is so versatile that you can add whatever you have on hand! No need to make an extra trip to the grocery store because let’s face it, that’s a scary place to be right now. I mean, it’s like the only place open, everyone is all masked up just getting food and other essentials trying to survive!

I can’t wait for life to get back to normal even though I know it’s going to be a while so…. I bake. I’ve already made about 5 batches of banana bread and banana muffins and my family is OVER that. So, cookies it is! Go ahead and start your ovens and let’s bake.

The recipe below is what I used. However, you can add walnuts, pecans, cranberries, raisins, different kinds of chocolate. The list goes on and on so just add what you like. Also, you can easily double it if you are sharing with family and friends 🙂

What you will need:

Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup old fashioned oats
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temp
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, cornstarch, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In a separate large bowl, beat together butter and both sugars until soft and creamy. Add in egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Slowly add in flour mixture and beat until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips and other add-ins. 

Scoop onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 9-10 minutes. Allow to cool a bit on cookie sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!

Store covered at room temperature.
