You won't be tempted to eat an entire batch of cookies with this recipe. This small batch oatmeal cookies recipe will give you chewy, perfect cookies to satisfy your cravings.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Do NOT melt the butter at all or your cookies will not work without chilling the dough.
Combine the sugars, butter, vanilla, and egg yolk, in a small bowl until well combined.
Mix together and then add the oats, salt, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda.
Stir in the flour and chocolate chips.
If the batter is too dry add a tiny bit more butter and if it is too wet add a tiny bit more flour.
Using a cookie scoop or your hands make three balls of the batter and place on a cookie sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes (depending on their size, but watch them) or until lightly browned along the edges remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack.
If desired press a few more chocolate chips into the top of the cookies once they've been removed from the oven.
Do not melt the butter or the cookies will not form as well. You can increase or decrease the amount of chocolate chips according to personal preference. I love my cookies loaded with chocolate!
