  • Cookie Sheets
  • Blender, Food Processor or Coffee Grinder


  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar packed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups oats old fashioned or instant, not steel cut
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 12 oz chocolate chips semi-sweet recommended
  • 4 oz bar milk chocolate* I actually prefer dark chocolate
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped nuts if desired


  • Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • First, In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add in eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Next, Using a food processor, blender or grinder, grind oats to a fine powder. Combine oats, flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda and mix until combined.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Add in chocolate chips, nuts and grated chocolate bar and stir until just combined.
  • Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto a cookie sheat that has been lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven and allow to cool on baking sheet for ten minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to continue cooling.


*while the recipe calls for a grated milk chocolate bar, I find that milk chocolate often melts into the cookies more than I prefer. I like to use dark chocolate, but it's a matter of personal taste.
