Repeat with additional baking sheets (I think I did 3.5 batches total).
I don't tend to bake a lot of cookies. Mainly because then I will find myself eating them. But, I recently had a craving for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and people to eat up the majority of them. Winning! This recipe makes a ton so you will have plenty to share, even if you want to keep a few for yourself (and you really should). These are chewy and delicious!
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups flour
2 3/4 cups oatmeal
2 cups chocolate chips
Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Preheat oven to 350.
Using a mixer, cream together the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until light and fluffy. Add baking soda, baking powder, and salt and mix to combine. Add flour, oatmeal, and chocolate chips, and mix until just incorporated.
Take a spoonful of batter and roll into an inch thick ball (or smaller, if you prefer smaller cookies), place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat until baking sheet is full, being sure to leave a couple inches between each ball of cookie dough. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cookies should be golden and crisp on the edges but slightly gooey in the center. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
