Cookie of the Week: Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Perfect cookie to pack for school snack!


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp kosher salt

2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 cup packed light brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

3 cups old-fashioned oats

1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

Whisk flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.

In the bowl of an electric mixer beat butter on medium speed until creamy. Add sugars and beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs – one at a time. Stir in the dry ingredients. With a wooden spoon fold in the oats and chocolate chips.

Roll dough into 2 inch balls and place on prepared baking sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart. Bake until edges turn golden brown, about 22-25 minutes. Let cookies cool on sheets for 2 minutes, transfer to wire rack and cool completely.

Makes about 25 large cookies.
