Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use instant oats instead of old-fashioned oats?
Old-fashioned oats or rolled oats take longer to cook compared to instant oats. However, they hold their shape better when cooked, giving a better texture. Instant oats are thinly chopped rolled oats and using them would result in a mushy and somewhat dry oatmeal cookie.
How can I make this a healthier batch of cookies?
You can always use vegan substitutes for the butter or substitute for more natural, less processed sugars like coconut sugar in place of brown sugar. Dried fruits can also provide a sweet flavor without having to resort to chocolate chips.
ConclusionYou can't beat freshly baked cookies, especially when they’re made in your own kitchen. It leaves the house smelling so delectable from a fresh batch of chewy and moist oatmeal chocolate chip cookies you can enjoy.
