  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups AP flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/4 cups Rolled (old-fashioned) oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped Pecans or Walnuts
  • 8 TB (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup packed Light Brown Sugar
  • 2/3 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup Maple syrup (I use Grade B instead of Grade A Dark Amber, because it has more flavor)
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup Milk Chocolate chips

Directions

  • Preheat to 350 degrees F.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and oats together.
  • In a large bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the egg until smooth.
  • Drizzle in the maple syrup, and vanilla and blend until well incorporated.
  • Gradually add the flour-oatmeal mixture.
  • Blend just until combined; then mix in the chocolate chips and pecans with a spatula.
  • Drop walnut-sized balls of dough onto parchment-lined cookie sheet about 2 1/2 – 3 inches apart.
  • Wet your fingers and flatten the cookies a little. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes or until lightly browned on top.
  • Set the cookie sheets on a rack to cool.

Notes

The addition of maple syrup to a good ‘Old-fashioned Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe’ lends a nice chewy-ness and an interesting new dimension to the flavor of these cookies.
