Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oh chocolate chip cookies! Everyone has there own version and everyone swears they have the best. Well you may notice that I already had a recipe for "the BEST chocolate chip cookies"... which i still think are really really good. But I have recently found this recipe... the search for it was brought about by a Bobby Flay Throwdown... and they are also the BEST chocolate chip cookies. The Oatmeal in them is what makes them so so yummy... and i think that because they are different, i can have 2 "BEST" chocolate chip cookie recipes. Found this recipe at Bake or Break

- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 2 large eggs (or 1/2 cup egg beaters)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 1/2 cups uncooked regular oats
- Chocolate chips (i use milk chocolate)
- Pecans (optional of course)

Preheat oven to 375°.
Beat butter at medium speed in a heavy-duty mixer until creamy. Gradually add sugars and beat well. Add eggs and vanilla, beating well. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, bakings soda, and salt. Gradually add to butter mixture and beat well.
Process oats in a food processor (or i just used my blender because i dont have one) until finely ground. Add to butter mixture and beat well. Stir in chocolates and pecans.
Drop cookies by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool slightly on baking sheets. Then, remove to wire racks to cool completely.

I have to admit I am not the creator for most of these recipes! Most of these come from friends or the Foodnetwork, and other websites. I usually tweak it, but i get them from other sources. THANK YOU OTHER PEOPLE,but please... use them, circulate them, make them your own. Just make sure you give the credit to the right person, which isn't always me!
