Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pan Cookies

When I'm pregnant, I seem to gravitate towards the comfort foods from my childhood. Of course, I've also been craving sweets like nobody's business. Last week, I was feeling like Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pan Cookies.  Would they more accurately be called a brownie or blondie? I don't know, but they are delicious.
The kids are always up for baking with me. Jellybean would help me every step of the way if I'd let her. Unfortunately, I have my limits when it comes to their "help." So, it ended shortly after mixing up the dry ingredients. Then I suited them up in their snow gear and sent them outside while I finished the baking.
It turned out to be a good compromise, plus they got freshly baked cookies when they came in from playing in the snow.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pan Cookies


2 cups unsifted All-Purpose Flour
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Salt
1 cup Butter, softened
3/4 cup Sugar
3/4 cup Brown Sugar, firmly packed
2 Eggs
1 Tbs. Water
1 1/2 cup Quick Oats
1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 tsp. Vanilla


Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F.

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cream butter, brown sugar, sugar, eggs and water. Add flour mixture. Stir in oats, chocolate chips and vanilla. Mixture will be a bit on the dry side. Spread in a greased 13x9 pan. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes. Cool and cut into 2" squares.

I didn't think that we could eat an entire pan, so I halved the recipe. Did you know that there are 12 Tablespoons in a 3/4 Cup? There are. :)  

Have a Happy Day!
