My Mom has been making these cookies for years and have become a big hit and a requested item from mine and brother's friends and now my children ask her to make them too. They are healthy and makes a good snack for school lunches....without too much guilt of it being 'junk food'. My daughter is not a fan of chocolate chips so I usually do half of the recipe with the white chips. Also, around Easter time I use pieces of Cadbury Mini Eggs....soooo yummy.
2 cups unsalted butter, slightly softened
1 1⁄2 cups white sugar
2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
5 cups rolled oats (Quaker 1 minute)
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
16 – 24 oz. Chocolate chunks
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cream together butter, sugar and eggs, beating well.
To prepare oats, pulverize regular rolled oats in a food processor. Add oats, flour,
vanilla, salt, baking powder, baking soda and chocolate chunks to butter mixture.
Spoon batter on to ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, removing
just before they look done or turn brown.
Let cookies cool a few minutes before removing to a rack to finish cooling. Store in airtight container.
Can be frozen.
Makes 9 dozen.
