Here is the recipe:
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip CookiesAdapted from Bon Appétit
Makes 7 dozen 2 inch cookies
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (packed) dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk the flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder & salt in a bowl.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter with both sugars until light & fluffy.
Add the eggs & vanilla & beat to combine.
Add the dry ingredients & beat until just incorporated.
Remove the mixer bowl from the stand, and fold in the chocolate chips.
Scoop the dough out by the tablespoonful & place 2 inches apart on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through the cooking time.
Let the cookies cool on a wire rack.
