Oatmeal Cookies

  1. 1 cup flour
  2. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  3. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  4. 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  5. 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  6. 1/2 cup butter
  7. 3/4 cup brown sugar
  8. 1 large egg
  9. 1 large egg yolk
  10. 2 teaspoons vanilla
  11. 1 1/2 cup whole oats


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 2

Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil, sugar, whole egg, egg yolk, and vanilla, whisking vigorously.

Step 3

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir in the oats, raisins, and walnuts, if using, folding into a tight batter. Set the dough aside for 20 minutes while the oven preheats.(Note: if your dough seems too wet to become scoop-able, chill it in the fridge for this 20 minutes and it'll firm up). If your dough is too crumbly, stir in 2 to 3 tablespoons water.

Step 4

Use a cookie scoop to divide the dough into 20 tablespoon-sized balls. Roll lightly in barely damp hands to make them round. Spread out onto the prepared baking sheets and bake until puffed, golden, and a touch underbaked-looking, 10 to 11 minutes. Let cool on the pans for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
