No matter the angle, these choc-oat-chip cookies dusted with pretzel and sea salt flakes knock it out of the park! Adapted from Half Baked Harvest’s cowboy cookies. Try these out ASAP.

Ingredients:

  • 2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbs vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups oats (old fashioned)
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 cup pretzels, crushed*
  • Flaky sea salt / sea salt grinder for dusting

Directions:

  1. Two things. One, no need to preheat oven now. Two, prepare to walk the fine line of combining but not over-beating in these first steps.
  2. Okay, beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until combined in a large mixing bowl. Add the eggs, one at a time, continuing to beat. Finally, add the vanilla, and beat till creamy.
  3. Onto the dry ingredients. Add the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Incorporate. Mix in the oats and chocolate chips.
    Now, preheat the oven to 350F and line 2-3 baking sheets with parchment paper. Let the batter rest for 20 min.
  4. Roll the dough into balls and put on a lined baking sheet. Using your finger, push pretzel chunks into each dough ball, then use your palm to flatten the ball gently.
  5. Bake for 5 minutes, remove, and do the “tap tap tap” rule (tap the baking sheet on the counter 3x). Bake for another 4-5 min, until the cookies just get golden on the edges. Remove, and do the tap tap tap rule one more time.
  6. Sprinkle with your sea salt and let cool. Enjoy!!!

*Note: I accidentally bought Trader Joe’s gluten free pretzels and THEY ARE AMAZING! I love pretzels, am not gluten free, and would readily buy again
