My house always smells so good when I put these in the oven. Sadly they are gone so fast, I need to sneak a few away beforehand



2 cups all-purpose flour

2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup softened butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract


Prep and Preheat: Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C) and adorning 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Dry Ingredients: Whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl, setting it aside for later.

Cream the Butter and Sugars: In a separate, larger bowl, smoothly cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar.

Incorporate the Eggs: Beat in the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract.

Merge Wet and Dry Mixtures: Gradually introduce the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, ensuring thorough combination.

Add Oats and Chocolate: Fold in the rolled oats and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Dough Drops: Gently drop spoonfuls of your cookie dough onto your prepared baking sheets, mindful of leaving spreading space.

Bake to Perfection: Bake in batches for approximately 9 minutes, or until a light golden hue adorns the edges. Once baked, allow them a few moments to cool on the baking sheets before transferring them to wire racks for complete cooling.
