Baking cookies on Friday afternoon has pretty much become a weekly event, but I think I'm going to make something other than cookies this Friday.
Although I'm not quite sure what I am going to make, I am sure of these cookies from a few Fridays ago.
These cookies in particular are full of oats and chocolate chips. I love oatmeal cookies and enjoyed the chocolate addition.
Ready to go!

makes 3-4 dozen cookies
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
Cream the butter and sugars in the bowl of an electric mixer with a paddle attachment until creamy, 3-4 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Bake 10-13 minutes in preheat oven. These are best when slightly underdone, about 10 minutes. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
