Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients:
1½ cups all-purpose flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t sea salt
1 cup butter (room temperature)
1 cup light brown sugar (packed)
¼ cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs (room temperature)
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups rolled oats
2 cups chocolate chips

Directions:
In a medium bowl, whisk flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars on med-high until pale and fluffy (approx. 3 minutes).
Add eggs one at a time, fully incorporating after each addition, and beat on high for 1 minute. Add vanilla. Turn mixer to low and add flour mixture, mix until combined.

Stir in oats and chocolate chips. Mix until just combined.
Chill dough in the fridge for an hour or outside, depending on the season. It is February here and 20 degrees out, so I set mine outside on the patio for an hour. 

Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet.
Using a small cookie scoop or a spoon, place cookies on baking sheet 2" apart. I did 12 cookies per sheet.
Bake for 10 mins or until edges are lightly browned but center is still soft and unset.
Cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet, then transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.

*You could always swap out raisins for the chocolate chips if you prefer.
