Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 8 ounces (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking)
  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

Makes 60 cookies

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon (if using).
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer using the paddle attachment, beat the butter until soft and creamy, then beat in both sugars. Scrape down the sides once and beat until smooth.
  4. Beat in the eggs and vanilla and scrape down the bowl once more.
  5. With the mixer on low speed, add 1/3 of the flour mixture. Mix until just combined then add 1/2 of the remaining flour mixture, mix again, then add the rest.
  6. Add the oats and chocolate chips and mix until just combined.
  7. On a lightly greased baking sheet, drop the dough by the heaping tablespoon, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the cookies are nicely browned.
  8. Cool on a wire rack and then store in an airtight container until ready to serve.

I had to send you an email to tell you that you have seriously changed my cooking life!  I have never been much of a cook. I have a busy career and have young children and was always scrambling at 5pm to make something quick or to get take out.  It always tasted just OK but I wanted to eat healthier.  Then I got turned onto your website and it is amazing!  The meals taste great and are really easy to make.  I really ENJOY cooking now and my husband is thrilled.
