Espresso Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies



makes 20 large cookies
recipe adapated from
Brown Eyed Baker

prep time: 30 min / cook time: 14 min


INGREDIENTS
3 c all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
* I omitted the salt
3 tbsp espresso powder
* I used Medaglia D'oro
3 sticks butter, softened
* I used salted butter
1 1/4 c granulated sugar
1 1/4 c light brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 c rolled oats
2 c semi-sweet chocolate chips

INSTRUCTIONS
• Adjust oven racks to the upper-middle and lower-middle positions.
• Preheat oven to 350˚F.
• Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
• In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and espresso powder. Set aside.
• In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar.
• Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
• Mix in the vanilla extract.
• Gradually beat in the flour mixture, mixing only until dough comes together. Do not over mix.
• With a large wooden spoon or rubber spatula, stir in the rolled oats, followed by the chocolate chips.
* A stiff rubber spatula works best. The flexible one is too soft and can't get to the bottom of the bowl very well.
• Using a large cookie/ice cream scoop, drop the cookies on the prepared cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
• Bake for 14 minutes, rotating the cookie sheets front to back and top to bottom half way though the baking time.
• Bake until the cookies are slightly browned and set on the outside, but still soft and puffy in the middle.
• Cool the cookies completely on the baking sheet.

** ADDIECAKES' NOTES **
• If you are making smaller cookies, lessen the baking time.
• I thought the cookie was a bit on the sweet side, so you may want to reduce the granulated sugar and light brown sugar.
• Be sure to mix the oats and chocolate chips well. The batter at the bottom will not have as much of either ingredients and will spread when they bake. You can always add more oats and chocolate chips when you get to the bottom.
