chewy chocolate chip oatmeal cookies
yields: approx. 24 cookies prep time: 10 minutes cook time: 10-12 minutes
2 sticks of butter, room temperature
1 ½ cups light brown sugar, packed
½ cup white sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 Tbsp. milk
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
¾ tsp. kosher salt
2 ½ cups old fashion oats
1 cup milk chocolate chips
flakey salt, for topping
Preheat the oven to 350° and prepare 2 large foil-lined, lightly greased baking sheets.
In the base of the stand mixer, beat together the butter and 2 sugars using the paddle attachment.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add the milk and vanilla extract and continue mixing until smooth and creamy.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.
With the mixer still running, slowly add the dry mixture to the wet. Mix until fully incorporated.
Using a spatula, stir the oats and chocolate chips into the batter.
Scoop 2-inch balls of the dough out and place them evenly on the prepared baking sheets.
Sprinkle flakey salt over the tops of each dough ball.
Bake one sheet at a time, for 10-12 minutes.
Allow the cookies to rest for 15 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a cooling rack.
