Today I am featuring the second post from A Blogger’s Dozen. This recipe come from a fairly new blog entitled Joyfill. Joyfill is a local Canadian blog that focus on recipes, landscapes, plants, and crafts to come. Created, photographed, and written by Bridget, each post is extremely informative and engaging. Although it’s still early, Bridget has such a unique voice that really captures what life on a farm is all about. I truly trust her recipes, and have confidence in saying that anything she publishes has been perfected and tastes delicious.
If you’re looking for one last gift for Valentine’s Day, this should be it.
1 ½ cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 ½ tsp salt
1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
1 cup butter at room temperature
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips
3 ¼ cups oatmeal
In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
This is a fairly new recipe to me. These are dense chewy oatmeal cookies, almost similar to a granola bar. I recently got the recipe from a neighbor who made it with raisins and nuts instead of the chocolate chips. I really enjoyed the hint of cinnamon and nutmeg in the background, especially if you use freshly ground nutmeg, the cookie has more depth and a richer flavor. Please enjoy this recipe and feel free to replace the chocolate chips with raisins, peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips, nuts, or even a combination of your favorites. And make sure to have a couple cookies with a nice cold glass of milk, some things are classics for a reason!
