King Arthur Flour has selected Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies as the 2015 Recipe of the Year. The cookies are a specialty of its Bake Truck, which travels the country handing out the cookies as part of the company’s Bake for Good fundraising program.
Last year, the Bake Truck collected over $8,000 for hunger-relief organizations, and after the cookies were handed out, they were consistently praised by thousands of taste testers nationwide as their favorite chocolate chip cookie – ever.
“This recipe is easy to follow, and comes out absolutely wonderfully! The taste was unbeatable as well! It’s a perfect balance of chocolate, oatmeal, and dough. This recipe will definitely move to the top of my go-to cookie pile,” declared Michael from Minetto, NY.
“What’s great about these cookies is they’re soft and chewy, packed with chips, and go beyond the standard chocolate chip cookie with the addition of nutty tasting oats,” said PJ Hamel, web producer for education and community at King Arthur Flour. “These delicious cookies are ideal for bake sales, potlucks, neighborly gifts, and sharing with friends and family, of course.”
The recipe originated from Cookies for Kids' Cancer, a non-profit organization King Arthur Flour is proud to support. For a gluten-free version, please visit http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/gluten-free-chocolate-chip-oatmeal-cookies-recipe.
