Growing up I never liked oatmeal cookies because they had raisins. But when I found this recipe under the lid of the Quaker Oats Box, I thought I'd substitute the raisins with chocolate and see if I liked it. And I LOVE THEM!

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

10 Min

Ingredients

2 stick
butter (1/2 lb.), softened
1 c
brown sugar
1/2 c
sugar
2
eggs
1 tsp
vanilla
1-1/2 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
cinnamon
1/2 tsp
salt
3 c
oats (old fashioned or instant)
1 c
chocolate chips (you may feel the need to add more. go for it!)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Beat together butter & sugars, until creamy. Then once creamy beat for another minute on med-high speed.
2
Add eggs & vanilla. Beat until well incorporated.
3
In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt; mix together very well. Then add the flour mixture to the butter & sugar mixture. Beat slowly until well incorporated. DO NOT OVER-BEAT (meaning once it is fully incorporated, stop the machine and move to next step)
4
Stir in oats and chocolate chips. Beat slowly until incorporated.
5
Drop by rounded Tablespoons onto un-greased cookie sheet. And bake for 9-12 minutes. Longer for crispier cookies, less time for softer cookies. (I prefer the softer ones)
6
Once the cookies are done, let them sit on the cookie sheet for at least one minute and then move to a cooling rack. Enjoy!!
