Thick, chewy oatmeal cookie studded with white chocolate morsels and toasted pecans.
Ingredients
  • 1¼ cups/190g organic whole wheat pastry flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 12 tablespoons/170g butter, softened
  • 1¼ cups/273g raw organic turbinado sugar
  • 2 organic or free range eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups/160g organic rolled oats
  • 1 cup/100g pecan halves, toasted and chopped
  • ¾ cup/115g white chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon water
Instructions
  1. Mix the whole wheat pastry flour with the baking soda, baking powder and salt and keep aside.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, dump the 2 cups of rolled oats and pulse 4 times to chop the oats a little.
  3. Put in a bowl and keep aside.
  4. You can pulse the raw sugar a few times too to get it a bit finer.
  5. Using a mixer, beat the softened butter with the sugar until light and fluffy.
  6. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each egg.
  7. Scrape the mixer bowl to mix everything evenly.
  8. Add the vanilla and cinnamon.
  9. Add the flour mixture and mix gently.
  10. Add the oats, pecans and white chocolate chips and mix gently.
  11. Add the tablespoon of water.
  12. Make sure the batter is well mixed.
  13. Allow to chill for at least an hour.
  14. To bake, preheat the oven to 350F/180C
  15. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or liner.
  16. Scoop out cookie dough with a cookie scoop or make balls with hands.
  17. Walnut size cookie balls, flatten slightly and bake for 12-15 minutes until browned at the edges.
  18. Cool on sheet pan for about 5 minutes and then on a rack to cool completely.
Notes
You can use soft brown sugar in place of the raw turbinado and the cookies will be quite soft and spread more than those made with the turbinado sugar. I made these both ways and they're both good but the turbinado cookies are soft with some crunch. These make about 33 regular sized cookies.
