  • 1.5 cup old-fashioned oats not quick cooking
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted, cooled, 1 stick
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (any kind will work: milk semi-sweet or white)


  • In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves (if using), salt.
  • In another mixing bowl, stir together butter vanilla, both sugars and egg. Stir until well combined.
  • Add the wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until combined. The dough will be sticky.
  • Add chocolate chips and mix in well.
  • Cover the bowl with saran wrap and place in fridge for at least 2 hours to overnight.
  • When ready to bake, line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Scoop the dough with medium size cookie scoop (1 and 1/2 Tablespoon size). Place scoops of dough on prepared baking sheet, spacing them 2" apart. Add few chocolate chips on each scoop, if desired.
  • Bake cookies for 13 to 15 minutes. For me 14 minutes was the magic number.
  • Let cool on sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer onto cooling rack.



I like to make this dough in the evening and let it chill in the fridge overnight.
