It may be because the season of baking and cookies is coming up (or it might be my own cookie obsession), but I keep developing cookies after cookies. I recently started craving some classic delicious chocolate chip cookies- but I also wanted something new, something better. So now, let me introduce the new all time favorite cookie: Elevated Chocolate Chip Cookies.

It's everything we all love about classic chocolate chip cookies, but this one is studded with walnuts and oats! It's basically a cozy, comforting hug masquerading in a cookie form. These are officially in my freezer cookie stash and are always the #1 cookie that my family and friends request for their visit. Try it out and become the official cookie maker in your family!

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 & 1/4 cup All-Purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (+ 1/4 cup for topping)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, place softened butter and both sugars. Mix together until combined.
Add in baking powder, baking soda, oats, and flour. Mix together.
Add vanilla, honey, and egg until mixture comes together.
Finally, stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
Scoop spoonfuls of dough onto sheet, about 2 inches apart. With the remaining chocolate chips, place on top of cookie scoops to get that perfect cookie look.
Place into fridge or freezer for atleast 15 minutes or until chilled.
When ready, bake cookies for 8-12 minutes. Take them out when cookies are starting to brown on the edges but the center still looks slightly uncooked.
Leave cookies in pan and allow them to cool for 5 minutes. Then remove from pan and enjoy your perfectly ooey-gooey cookies!

    Why do you place the spooned dough in the fridge/freezer prior to baking?

      It helps to keep the structure of the cookie so it stays thick and doesn't spread too much in the oven!

    Instead of 3tbs. Of sugar can I substitute honey

      I would recommend keeping the sugar since this recipe already has honey.
