  • 1 cup butter, softened (2 sticks)

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

  1. Place oven racks in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl with electric mixer, beat butter and brown sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy, about 1 minutes.
  3. Add eggs one at a time and mix until thoroughly incorporated.
  4. Add oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Mix on low speed until blended.
  5. Add semi-sweet chocolate chips and mix until incorporated.
  6. Drop batter by heaping teaspoons 1 1/2 inches apart onto greased or parchment lined baking sheets. (I use my Silpat baking mat)
