Salted-caramels, check. Sea-salt chocolate bars, check. Salted oatmeal cookies? Well, that’s what I whipped up a few weekends ago. These are defintely not your run-of-the-mill oatmeal cookies. Fresh out of the oven, these are chewy yet crisp at the edges, studded with chunks of melty dark chocolate. A sprinkling of pink Himalayan sea-salt sharpens the flavours and makes them even more addictive!

Best of all, this is super simple to whip up. The cookie dough comes together in no time at all and can be frozen in batches. What I like to call – instant gratification. For the perfect chewy-crisp texture, bake til they just turn a light golden hue and are a little soft in the middle. Words cannot do these babies justice; the proof is in the pudding cookie.

Salted Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup organic rolled oats
130g unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 t baking soda
1 cup organic dark brown sugar
110g unsalted french butter
1 whole egg
2 t pure vanilla
1/2 t sea salt or fleur de sel (I used pink Himalayan sea salt)
150g dark chocolate

Mix dry ingredients together and set aside.Beat butter, sugar and egg together until light and fluffy. Mix in vanilla and sea salt. Sift and fold in dry mixture + dark chocolate, chopped into chunks (i used 1 1/2 bar of 70% cocoa for this) Place spoonful of cookie batter on a baking sheet. Sprinkle the tops with more pink sea salt. Bake at 180C for about 8 min, rotating the sheets if necessary.
