Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Crunch Cookies

It certainly isn't new information that I love my sweets,
especially chocolate, and I have a soft spot for cookies.They are probably one of my most favorite desserts, with the wide variety available and just about anything you can add, they definitely rank high in my book!

I stumbled across the most delicious chocolate chip cookies from a local bakery, and have been hooked on them since. What I think makes them so amazing is the addition of Corn Flakes! Yes that's right, deliciously crunchy and mildly sweet, the flakes help to give this cookie it's name. 

Now I don't know the recipe behind these local cookies or even everything that would be in them. So based on taste and a few other recipes I have seen, I put together a list of ingredients and came up with something pretty close that is just as delicious. I call them Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Crunch Cookies, I'll continue to work on this one a bit more, but in the mean time will enjoy it all the same!

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Crunch Cookies

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup of unsalted butter, room temperature ( this is important, pretty sure mine was a bit too warm)
1 large egg
yolk of 1 large egg
1 Tbsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup oats
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup Corn Flakes
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips

- Preheat the oven to 325° and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

- First you will mix together the sugars and butter until blended smooth. Then add the vanilla and eggs, beat until mixed thoroughly.

- Add flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix well. 

- Then take Corn Flakes and crunch in hands, dump flakes into bowl and continue to mix until just combined. Scrap the bowl and add chocolate chips until mixed. 

Take a large cookie scoop and drop onto baking sheet about 1-2 inches apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden. (Depending on your oven this time may vary).

Let cookies cool for a few minutes and remove from baking sheet. 

Mine may have gotten a little more done than I would have ultimately liked. They did continue to bake a bit while cooling. 

Now devour and enjoy! These did not last long in my house, yet that really is no surprise.
