Hannah Messinger urges you to make these super moist, toasted oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies.
  • 5 ounces old-fashioned oats
  • 6.5 ounces bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup (two sticks) salted butter
  • 10 ounces sugar, half brown, half white
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 large eggs at room temp
  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • flaky salt
  1. Melt 2 Tablespoons over butter over medium heat in a skillet. Toast oats, stirring occasionally, until they smell like popcorn. Pulse them in a food processor until they are as fine as possible. Whisk with other dry ingredients.
  2. Cream butter and sugars together. Add eggs, one at a time, followed by vanilla. At a very low speed, mix in dry ingredients. Give about ¼ of the chocolate chips a good chop- don't be tempted to do this step in the food processor because the heat from the motor will melt the chocolate. Fold in chocolate.
  3. Cover tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 24 hours, or up to 72 hours.
  4. Preheat your oven to 350. Roll dough into 2 ounce balls and bake six at a time. The length that you bake your cookies will determine the texture. About 14 minutes will give you a good, chewy cookie. 18 minutes will give you a more old-fashioned, crispy cookie.
  5. As soon as you pull your pan out of the oven, top the hot cookies with a sprinkle of salt. Let them rest for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
