As far as texture is concerned, these are some of the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies I’ve had. I like how they are both crisp and chewy. However, they were a little too sweet. So, I reduced the amount of chocolate chips in the recipe below. I also want to try reducing the amount of sugar to 1 cup next time. 


INGREDIENTS
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
3 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1¼ cups granulated sugar
1¼ cups packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1½ cups rolled oats
2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

1. Adjust oven racks to middle position. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix in the vanilla extract.

4. Gradually beat in the flour mixture, mixing only until dough comes together. Be careful not tot overmix.

5. With a large wooden spoon or rubber spatula, stir in the rolled oats, followed by the chocolate chips.

6. Using a large cookie scoop (about 2 ½ tablespoons), drop the dough on the prepared cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake until the cookies are slightly browned and set on the outside but still soft and puffy in the middle, about 14 minutes. Cool the cookies completely on the baking sheets.
