1 c

2 tsp
2 c
2 1/2 c
1 1/2 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
2 c
chocolate chips

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, cream margarine and sugars. Add in egg, one at a time, beating after every addition. Mix in vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine oats, flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix together then slowly add into the margarine mixture. Add about a cup at a time, mix, then add another cup. Do this until it is all blended together. Mix in chocolate chips.

    I made these and shared them with my family and office. They said they were better than Potbelly's. I used real butter instead of the margarine.

    I'm making these as I type...... They're in the oven right now and it smells great. I also used real butter. Just gives so much more "Down-home" flavor to anything that calls for margarine. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Can't wait to eat one.
