Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
- ¾ cup butter, softened
- 1 cup brown sugar (I like coconut palm sugar as a more natural alternative)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp almond extract
- 1¼ cups flour, ideally white whole wheat
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 ¾ cups old fashioned rolled oats
- 1 ¼ cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375F.
In a large bowl, combine the butter and sugar with an electric beater. Beat in the eggs and extract.
In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually stir the dry mixture into the butter mixture. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips.
Drop small spoonfuls of batter onto a greased baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes.
Makes about 30 cookies.
