It's Cookie Time!

Yesterday, we made the most yummy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! Henry and I love to cook together.  Henry loves being a "chef, " so I had stocked up on organic baking needs from Whole Foods. I picked up butter, eggs, chocolate chips, and the oats from their bulk bins. I had all the other necessary goods needed.
When trying new recipes I opt to look at a few online and then combine the ones that look best to me (usually don't like cooking with abundance of Baking powder and Baking soda at the same time, and usually I cut the amount by a 1/4 tsp).

So I combined Betty Crockers version with this one, from Savory Sweet Life blog.

Ingredients (as Organic as possible):
1 1/2 Brown sugar, gently packed
1 cup Butter (slightly cold but not frozen)
1 1/4 tsp Vanilla
1 egg
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup Almond meal
1 3/4 cup Oats (not quick oats)
Chocolate Chips (semi sweet)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixer (with the paddle attachment), mix brown sugar and butter until fluffy (about medium to high speed). Mix for at least 2 minutes.
Slow down the mixer while you add the vanilla and the egg. Let it mix completely. Add in baking soda, salt, flour, almond meal, oats and chocolate chips.

Create spoon sized balls onto non-greased baking sheets. Cook until lightly golden brown!
