What You'll Need
  • 225 grams unsalted room temperature butter
  • 1 1/4 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugars until very light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract to creamed sugar mixture.
  4. On low speed, or by hand, gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet mixture, mixing until completely incorporated.
  5. Chill batter for 3-12 hours.
  6. To bake the cookies, preheat the oven 180ºC. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Drop the dough by rounded tablespoon onto sheet, and flatten the tops slightly with your hand.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes, then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
