  • 1 ½ cups old-fashioned oats
  • 3 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, well beaten
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, or almond
  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted (If you use salted butter, lessen the added salt to ¼ teaspoon.)
  • ½ cup semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips, optional, you could also try peanut butter chips. Raisins work, too!


  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicon baking pad.
  • In a medium bowl with a wooden spoon, stir together the oats, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl stir the vanilla into the beaten egg until well incorporated.
  • Continuously stirring the egg mixture, slo-o-owly pour the melted butter into the egg. Add the butter slowly so it incorporates and doesn't have a chance to cook to egg.
  • Add this egg mixture to the oats and mix thoroughly. You should have a sticky mixture that is still loose; don't worry, when the cookies bake, the egg will bind it all together.
  • If using, add the chocolate chips and stir until evenly distributed.
  • Use a Tablespoon or cookie scoop to drop onto prepared cookie sheets. Before dropping onto the cookie sheet be sure to press the mixture a bit to compact it. Then gently press on the cookie to flatten a little before baking. These won't spread out.
  • Bake for 9-12 minutes until edges are golden brown. Cooking time will determine the crispiness or chewiness of these cookies...longer cooking = crispier, just watch to ensure they don't burn.
  • Remove cookies from baking sheet to cooling rack while still warm.
