maple chocolate chip oat cookies

When it comes to Fall baking, I love pumpkin treats just as much as the next person, but in my opinion, maple is the flavor of the season. I try to put a pop of maple flavor into every desert possible. These maple chocolate chip oat cookies taste like a bowl of warm oatmeal on a stormy Fall day, and nothing is better than that, in my opinion.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup flour + 1 Tablespoon
  • 1 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple extract
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. in a medium bowl, whisk together flour, oats, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the butter and all sugars together for 2 minutes until well combined.
  4. Mix in the egg, vanilla extract, maple extract, and maple syrup, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combined. Add the chocolate chips and mix on low speed until well combined. Cover tightly and refrigerate 30 min – one hour. *(if chilling dough overnight, let dough sit out for 30 minutes before baking)
  6. Using a cookie scoop, scoop dough onto parchment lined cookie sheet, leaving 1 inch between each ball of dough. Gently press down each ball of dough to slightly flatten them.
  7. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, or until edges are golden.
  8. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
  9. Enjoy!
