Ingredients:

  • 150g butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips

Method:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper and set aside.

Using a mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar together. Add the vanilla extract and egg and mix well.

In a bowl, combine the flour, oats and 1 cup of the chocolate chips.

Fold in the butter and sugar mixture until well combined.

Roll tablespoon-sized balls of mixture and use the flat bottom of a glass to press them down a little. Sprinkle a few of the remaining chocolate chips on each cookie.

Bake for 20 minutes until pale golden. Leave to cool on the tray for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool.

 

Notes:

  • This makes about 30-40 cookies.
  • You need to keep and eye on these in the oven. Cooking to pale golden is the "just right" stage for these cookies to have crunch.
