Chocolate-Oatmeal Cookies

Today, I studied some more.

Started reading The Wonderful Wizard of OZ
I Worked Out:
Level One of Jillian Michael’s 30-Day Shred
Monday of The Last Chance Workout
a 10 minute run.
After all of that I knew I needed cookies.
So, I made…
Chocolate-Oatmeal Cookies


  • 1 & 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 & 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
    • Preheat oven 350 degrees
    • Cover baking sheet in parchment paper
    • Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and set aside
    • Cream together butter and both sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes
    • Beat in eggs one at a time, mixing well after each
    • Mix in vanilla
    • With a wooden spoon slowly mix in flour mixture in three parts until combined
    • Mix in oats and chocolate
    • Roll two heaping tablespoons of batter per cookie into balls and place on baking sheet covered in parchment paper


  • Bake until cookie edges are just turning golden brown about 12 to 14 minutes
  • Cool or about 2 minutes on the baking sheet
  • Then transfer to a cooling rack for a half an hour
  • Enjoy
