  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups rolled (old-fashioned) oats
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  • In a large bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together for 30 seconds until blended.
  • Beat in the egg until smooth and barely fluffy.
  • With mixer running on medium high, drizzle in the maple syrup, and vanilla until incorporated.
  • Turn the mixer down to its lowest setting and gradually add the flour-oatmeal mixture.
  • Blend just to combine, then mix in the chocolate chips.
  • Drop walnut-sized balls of dough onto a Reynolds parchment-lined cookie sheet at 3-inch intervals.
  • With moistened fingers, flatten and round out the cookies a little.
  • Bake for 9 minutes, turning the pan once for even baking.
  • The cookies are done when they are lightly browned on top.
  • Set the cookie sheets on a rack to cool.

Notes

I got this one from my brother. It's a good cookie, lots of chocolate and nuts. The oatmeal gives it a nice chew, of course, and the maple syrup adds a nice touch.
