Hazelnut chocolate chip oatmeal cookies – Thick chewy oatmeal cookies with crispy edges packed with rolled oats, chopped hazelnuts and chocolate chips and topped with chocolate ganache. A classic lunch box treat make-over.
Few weeks ago I had to bake, for a church event, desserts for around 100 people. For two days I baked, washed the dishes, baked, washed the dishes and baked some more. By the end of the second day I was exhausted. I was glad this type of church events only happens once or twice a year. I honestly don’t have the energy to bake that much more often. That and all the questions I get after: Do you have a bakery? How can we order something? Some people don’t understand that I only bake for the church when they have big events, other than that hello close friends and neighbors. I’ve brought you some more cookies.
Being busy for two days I didn’t have much time left to play with Tiffany. She helped me with the baking for a little bit, colored, read and watched some TV. Although she seemed like having fun, I somehow felt guilty for not finding a little time to play with her.
When all my baking was done, I asked her to pick a couple of activities she’s like us to do together. After, let’s read five books, which always comes first if I let her choose, she wanted to make some cookies. Chocolate cookies, of course.
Orders must be obeyed. Cookies with chocolate were on the baking list. I remembered seeing a recipe for oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips in a cookbook and have put a sticky note to it but haven’t gotten around to make it, until now. It was the perfect time to try it. With a twist, of course.
I added more hazelnuts some hazelnut coffee creamer for a more flavorful nutty flavor and also added some Hazelnut creamer to the chocolate chips when making the ganache.
The cookies turned out soft and chewy with just a little crispy edges. The addition of hazelnuts and chocolate made me think of Nutella spread on a soft oatmeal cookie. You can’t go wrong with that!
