Modified from a very old Mrs. Fields' recipe that my mother-in-law shared with me many moons ago. I have altered the recipe in several ways, but the oatmeal trick definitely came from Mrs. Fields!

Serves: 4 dozen
Ingredients
  • 1 cup salted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
  • 2½ cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 12-18 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips or wafers (12 ounces is a normal amount; 18 ounces is if you really like chocolate!)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375ยบ F.
  2. In a stand mixer or large bowl using a hand blender, beat butter, sugar and brown sugar on medium-high speed for 4-5 minutes.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat another 1-2 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  4. In a blender, blend the oats until it resembles a very coarse flour.
  5. Add oats to cookie dough and blend on low until just combined.
  6. Add flour and blend on low until just combined.
  7. Stir in chocolate.
  8. Form dough into balls (approximately 2 tablespoons per ball). Place on ungreased cookie sheet or cookie sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper (I use a Silpat). Press down gently on the dough balls to flatten them a bit. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until bottom edges are a golden brown.
  9. Dough balls may be frozen. Add a few minutes to cooking time if baking from frozen.
