Yield: 1 dozen
Ingredients
  • 2¼ c. old-fashioned oats, divided
  • 1½ tbsp. cornstarch
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. kosher sea salt
  • ½ c. (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • ½ c. brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 c. semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips or chunks of chopped chocolate
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet pan with parchment or a baking mat, set aside.
  2. In a food processor or blender, add 1¼ cup of the oats, cornstarch, baking powder and salt, pulse until the oats are finely ground but not completely powdered.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, or in a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer, beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla, mixing until combined. With mixing speed on low, gradually add the oat mixture and the remaining oats, mix just until combined. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the chocolate chips or chunks.
  4. Using a standard size cookie scoop, place dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. DO NOT OVER-BAKE. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes on the pan before transferring to a wire racks to cool completely.
Notes
-DO NOT substitute the butter for coconut oil... it will not work, I promise, I've tried.
