Two giant oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies

Sometimes you may not want to share your desserts… When that happens, make this one-bowl oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookie. It only yields 2 cookies so you can share this with a friend or eat it all to yourself. I’ll let you guess what I chose to do!

I would like to think that I’m a fairly generous person. Obviously, I like to bake, and I almost always share the fruits of my labor with friends, family, and coworkers. Today was not that kind of day.

We had just gotten heavy rains that caused a lot of flooding in the area. It was so much water that schools were closed. We even had a bunch of water creep into the garage so we had to clear out the water-logged areas and get rid of some stuff. True story.

Since the flooding got me in a groggy mood, I wanted to bake something just for myself. I guess I was in a selfish mood that day because I certainly did not want to share anything. Enter these cookies.

I was able to make these cookies very quickly. I mixed everything together in about 5 minutes and then they baked for another 15. That means that I was able to eat these cookies in about 20 minutes total. That’s less time than it takes to watch a typical show on television (DVRed of course).

The cookies are big and chewy and are a perfect blend of a traditional oatmeal raisin cookie and a classic chocolate chip cookie. And even better – they are made in one bowl so there is minimal cleanup.

And because it makes only 2 cookies, you don’t have to share! You can bake these up and nobody would ever know! Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything… 😉

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons (30 grams) unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 Tablespoons (35 grams) brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 Tablespoons (25 grams) all-purpose flour
  • Heaping 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 1/2 cup (40 grams) old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3 Tablespoons (30 grams) chocolate chips
  • 2 Tablespoons (20 grams) raisins

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat and set aside.
  • In a medium sized bowl, mix together the butter, sugar, egg yolk, vanilla, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Fold in the oats, chocolate chips and raisins until well combined.
  • Divide the dough in half and roll each half into a circular mound.
  • Place the dough balls on your prepared baking sheets and bake in your preheated oven for 15-17 minutes or until the top turns golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. The cookies will continue to set as they cool.
  • Cool before serving.

Notes

Since there are only two cookies, I don't anticipate that you'll need instructions for leftovers. If you do, send them to me and I will take care of it for you. 🙂
