Our Gal’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

Our gal loves baking and wanted to bake some chocolate chip cookies.

She has a chocolate chip cookie recipe that she’s used several times before and know it by heart. She says it was originally from some kiddy book that she can’t remember so I can’t give the due credit for it.

These cookies were delicious. I ate 2 as soon as they came out of the oven!

Makes approximately 40 cookies.


2 cups plain flour
1 cup caster sugar (or use 1/2 cup if you prefer cookies to be less sweet)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup oatmeal
1 pinch of salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
115g butter (left in the open to soften)
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Leave butter in a warm place for a couple of hours to soften. It has to be soft and cannot be used straight out of the fridge.

Pre-heat oven to 180 deg Celsius.

In a large mixing bowl, add 2 cups of flour.

Add 1 cup of caster sugar. Or less (1/2 cup) if preferred.

Add 1 cup of brown sugar.

Add 1 cup of oatmeal.

Add a pinch of salt.

Add 1 teaspoon of baking soda.

Stir the dry ingredients together till they are well mixed.

In a separate large bowl, add 115g of softened butter.

Add 2 large eggs.

Add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

Whisk to combine. Don’t worry about the lumps.

Add 1/2 cup of vegetable oil.

Whisk the mixture well to combine.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.

Stir well to combine the dry and wet mixtures.

When the dough is ready, add 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Stir gently to combine.

Roll the ready dough into equal sized balls. About 1.5 inches in diameter.

Bake in the pre-heated oven for 13-15 mins. They will be chewy if they are slightly underbaked, and very crispy if baked for a full 15 mins.

  8. Had try this recipe. But the outcome for the final step for combining dry n wet mixture.it turn out quite sticky n wet.i cant make it to a dough like how u do. End up i have to use spoon to scoop out the mixture to place it on the baking tray…dunno wad went wrong..but i had follow the measurement base on e recipe. I wonder was it my vegetable oil? But the end result still taste awesome! 😉
