Guest Blog #2: Stealth Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies (Courtesy of Linus and his mom)

It’s the Holiday Season and it’s time for giving! Linus (and his mom) have graciously shared their recipe for Stealth Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies with me! Thanks for the guest blog Linus!I’m still waiting for my cookies in the mail. :)

“I don’t know about you, but I kind of hate oatmeal cookies. They’ve
got this weird texture and people are often tempted to put raisins in
them. But oatmeal is really healthy, so finding a way to integrate it
into cookies is a good way to feel less guilty about eating baked
goods that are approximately 99% butter and sugar. This recipe is the
result of my desire to integrate oatmeal into cookies in a way that
doesn’t make them horrible.

Makes about 16 cookies




2 sticks butter at room temperature
3/4 cup light or dark brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
2 3/4 cups rolled oats
2 cups chocolate chunks (non negotiable. Don’t use chocolate chips…
they’re lame)
1 cup chopped walnuts (if desired)


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees

2. Coarsely grind oatmeal using a grinder or food processor

3. In large bowl, cream butter with both sugars, using electric
mixer at medium speed until creamy and lightened in color (about 4

4. Add egg and vanilla. Mix on low speed until incorporated



5. In a small bowl, stir together, flour, baking soda, salt,
cinnamon and nutmeg. Add to creamed mixture, mixing well. Stir in

    lol. “stealth” and “nonnegotiable” tell me that Linus, not his mom, wrote this. hey ellen, do you get ad revenue from wordpress? im thinking of starting a blog but trying to figure out what platform to use. Blogger gives you revenue from Adsense i think.
