These are the kind of cookies I dream about with a giant glass of milk. These are not fancy cookies, they are not multi-day creations. They are simple, delicious and remind me of what a cookie should be. Soft, crunchy, buttery, chocolately…
And I tell myself the oats and almonds makes them healthy.
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup quick oats
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 chopped almonds
Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.
Begin by creaming the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla, mixing until combined.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Slowly add into the wet mixer and mix until just combined. Mix in the oats, chocolate chips and nuts.
Drop tablespoon sized balls of dough on a prepped baking sheet. Be sure to place the dough a few inches apart – these will spread a bit.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
This recipe should make about 3 dozen cookies – if you don’t eat too much of the dough like I do.
