Our dog Loey can smell these things from a mile away! It's hilarious! She comes running and always gets a taste because, how can you stand that cute face?
1 1/2 cups (3 cubes) butter, softened
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons of vanilla
3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoon soda
1 1/2 teaspoon powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup wheat germ (optional, makes them less greasy and adds a yummy flavor)
3 cups quick oats
Semisweet and milk chocolate chips
Chopped pecans (optional)
DIRECTIONSPreheat oven to 375° F. Cream together butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Stir in vanilla, eggs and wheat germ. Sift together flour, soda, powder, and salt. Add flour mixture and oatmeal. Stir in chocolate chips by hand. Bake on a non-stick cookie sheet for about 9 minutes until golden. Do not over bake. We usually take them out while still soft and let them finish cooking on the baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
