- In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugars until very light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile in a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon, making sure there are no lumps of baking soda. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips.
- Beat in eggs and vanilla extract to creamed sugar mixture.
- On low speed, or by hand, gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet mixture, mixing until completely incorporated.

- Drop the dough by rounded tablespoon onto sheet, and flatten the tops slightly with your hand.
