Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

1 cup (220g) margarine

3/4 cup (151g) brown sugar, packed

1 cup (192g) granulated sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons (6g) of vanillaextract

1 teaspoon (5g) salt

1 teaspoon (4g) baking soda

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups (149g) all-purpose flour

3 cups (241g) of quick oats 

1 bag of chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C/gas 5).

In a medium mixing bowl beat the margarine and sugars together until creamy.

Add vanilla, salt, baking soda and eggs, mix well.

Blend in the flour and oats. Scrape the bowl and mix another 30 seconds.

Add 1 bag of your favorite chocolate chips. Or whatever amount you wish. Mix about 30 seconds.

Mix too long and and the chips might disintegrate. That'll just spread the chocolate more evenly throughout the dough.

Use a cookie scoop or drop the dough by rounded teaspoons onto the cookie sheet.

Bake for about 10 minutes or till lightly browned.

Cool your home baked cookies about 5 minutes. Remove from pan.
