Almond Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies


Happy Monday everyone! A fresh week ahead, and so much to look forward to! Including these almond chocolate chip oatmeal cookies! I am a biiiig chocolate chip cookie fan. In Middle School my best friend and I would make giant chocolate chip cookies for sleepovers, and they were my absolute favorite! I gave the traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe an update in these cookies, by adding a little almond, oatmeal and espresso powder!


When you make these cookies, you may not taste the espresso powder. It helps to deepen all the flavors in the cookies, and as a flavor emulsifier, similar to vanilla extract! I love that these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are so chewy and thick, and full of flavor!




Makes about 18-20 cookies

Ingredients:

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cane sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon espresso powder
1 egg
1 cup old-fashioned oats
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup sliced almonds

Directions:

Whisk together the dry ingredients, flour through salt in a mixing bowl and set aside. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. Dissolve the espresso powder into the vanilla, and then mix the egg and vanilla into butter and sugar. Add the dry ingredients, and mix on low until just combined. Add the oats, mixing for about 30 seconds until incorporated. Then add the almonds and chocolate chips and mix until evenly distributed.

Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes to an hour.

Preheat oven to 350 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll cookies, using roughly 3 tablespoons per cookie, and evenly space 12 per cookie sheet. Bake 12-14 minutes, or until very lightly browned on the sides. The centers will still look soft, which is what we want!

Remove the cookies from the oven, and allow to cool on the baking sheet at least 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
