Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cup ground old fashioned oats*
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats left whole
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips Lately I've been preferring dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line 2 baking sheets with silicone mats.
  • In your stand mixer, beat butter and brown sugar together until fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  • Beat in vanilla and egg.
  • Stir in ground oats, whole oats, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
  • Mix until well combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, pack dough into the 1/4 cup and turn out dough onto prepared baking sheet - no more than 6 cookies on each baking sheet.
  • Bake immediately, or cover baking sheets with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.**
  • Remove plastic wrap and bake cookies in preheated oven until golden brown, about 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let cookies sit for 5 minutes.
  • Transfer to a wire cooling rack to let finish cooling or eat immediately!
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature.

Notes

*Make ground oats by placing about 2 cups old fashioned oats in your food processor. Grind until the oats resemble flour. Measure out 1 and 1/4 cups ground oats and resume with recipe!
**I never have had a problem with my cookies spreading when I don't refrigerate them, but if you're concerned, feel free to refrigerate the cookies then bake, as refrigerating will help the cookies keep their shape!
