Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
adapted slightly  from Martha Stewart

1 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 sticks (1/2lb) butter, room temperature
2 large eggs
2 teaspoon mexican vanilla
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
12 ounces good-quality chocolate, chopped, or 12oz chocolate chips

oatmeal chocolate chip cookie

Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and butter. Starting with the mixer on low speed and increasing until it is on medium, beat until the mixture is creamy and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs and the vanilla extract, then scrape the sides of the bowl, and mix to combine.

Combine the rolled oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder, wheat germ and cinnamon in a large bowl, and stir to combine. Add the dry mixture to the butter mixture, then mix on low speed just to combine, 10 to 15 seconds. Remove the bowl from mixer stand, and stir in your chocolate.

Drop dough by spoonful onto parchment lined baking sheet. Bake until golden and just set, 12-14 minutes. Remove from oven; let cool on pan 4 to 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

enjoy!

These are beyond gorgeous! And I totally agree that they are so very evocative of Autumn. I have a thick and chewy oatmeal cookie recipe I like but I think this one needs to be tried! Thank you!

Mmm thanks for sharing. I needed a good oatmeal chocolate chip recipe. I was not a fan of the one I have last time I made them. I'll give these ones a try when I finish off the peanut butter chocolate chip cookies I made last night! :)
