Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: North American
Serves: 20 to 22 cookies
Ingredients
  • 4 tbs butter at room temperature
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1½ cups large rolled oats
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 ºF.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a large mixing bowl with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar on high.
  4. Lower the speed to medium and add the maple syrup and egg. Mix for 30 seconds.
  5. In a medium bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients except the chocolate chips.
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl and wet ingredients. Mix well with a heavy spatula or wooden spoon until all ingredients are incorporated and wet.
  7. Mix in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed in the batter.
  8. Using a small ice-cream scoop, fill the scoop tightly against the side of the mixing bowl and drop a ball of dough onto the baking sheet.
  9. Keep scooping the dough onto the baking sheet about one inch apart until the batter is all used up.
  10. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 14 minutes. The edges should look a little toasted and the dough will be a little soft when it comes out. The cookies will harden a touch once they're cool.
  11. After about five minutes, transfer the cookies onto a cooling rack for another 10 to 15 minutes.
  12. Serve these cookies with a nice cold glass of milk, a hot tea or a delicious coffee!
Notes
If you don't have a small ice cream scoop, you can use heaping teaspoons to form your cookies.
Other options instead of dark chocolate chips include: Raisins, Cranberries or your favourite nuts.
