Ingredients
  • 2½ cups (10.45 oz or 295 g) old fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 cups (8 oz) AP flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1 t baking soda
  • ½ t salt
  • 1½ cups (12 oz or 3 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup (7 oz) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (7 oz) light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • ½ T vanilla
  • 2 cups (12 oz) semi sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ bag (5 oz) mini chocolate chips
  • coarse sea salt, to taste
Instructions
  1. Place the oven racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line 2 cookie sheets with silicone or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Grind the oats in a food processor--Casaceli calls for a fine grind but I stopped when there were still some tiny bits of un-ground oats.
  3. Whisk together the oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  4. Beat the butter on medium speed until light and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add the sugar gradually and beat until very light and fluffy.
  5. Add the eggs, one at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl inbetween. Add the vanilla and beat to make sure everything is incorporated.
  6. With the mixer on low, add the dry ingredients. Caseceli has you finish by kneading but I chose to add the chips with the motor runnign on low while the flour was still only half mixed in and then finish by hand, but with a spatula.
  7. Using a small ice cream or cookie dough scoop, prepare the balls of dough for baking. They should be about 1.5 inches in diameter and set 2 inches apart. I believe I baked 6 to a sheet. Sprinkle the cookies with coarse sea salt (my own addition--ignore if you prefer).
  8. Bake for about 15 minutes, rotating from top to bottom and front to back halfway through. The cookies should be lightly browned at the edges and set in the center. Do not overbake. Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
