Midnight snack

I love oatmeal cookies, mostly because of the endless ways you can personalize them and always come out with something delicious (for the most part). I added chocolate chips, some crasins, dollops of salty peanut butter, nutella as well as a splash of molasses. This recipe is quick and makes 12 cookies. A perfect amount for a late night snack, and some left for lunch or breakfast.. 

Ingredients: 1/4 cup butter softened 1/4 cup sugar  1/4 cup packed brown sugar 1 egg  1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 cup all-purpose flour  1/2 cup quick-cooking oats 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon  1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; gradually stir into creamed mixture. Stir in oats, chocolate chips and any other goodness you want to add (nuts, marshmallowscoconut, salty peanut butter, bacon ect. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 in. apart onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 325° for around 8 mins or until the edges start to get dark
Yield: 1 dozen.
