Perfect oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

Recipe by Eshun Mott


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar

  • 1 large egg

  • 2 tsp vanilla

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 2 cups rolled oats

  • 1/2 cup raw, shelled sunflower seed

  • 1 cup dark chocolate chip


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Combine butter, granulated and brown sugars in a large bowl, and beat with an electric mixer until smooth and well combined. Add egg and vanilla and beat until fully incorporated.

  • Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl and stir until well blended.

  • Add flour mixture into butter mixture and beat until fully combined. Add oats, sunflower seeds and chocolate chips, and beat until just incorporated.

  • Roll dough into 1-in. balls. Place 3 in. apart on prepared baking sheets and flatten slightly with your hand (cookies will spread).

  • Bake cookies for 13 to 15 min or until lightly golden at the edges. Let cool on baking sheets for 5 min, then transfer to a cooling rack.

When you bake one sheet of cookies at a time, it ensures crisp and evenly browned edges. But you can bake two sheets at a time, just use the top and lower oven racks and switch positions halfway through baking.
