2 cookie sheets lined with parchment paper
1/2cup (113g)unsalted butter, melted
3/4cup (150g)brown sugar, packed
1 and 1/4cups (155g)all-purpose flour
1cup (86g)old-fashioned (rolled) oats
1/2cup (85g)chocolate chips or chopped chocolate(plus more for tops if desired)
Coarse or flaky sea salt(optional, for sprinkling on top)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl whisk together melted butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, spices, baking soda and salt.
Stir in flour and oats until a dough is formed. Fold in chocolate chips.
Drop by tablespoons (a #40 cookie scoop is perfect for this) onto parchment lined baking sheets about 2 inches apart, then roll into balls in your hands if you want them perfectly round. Add extra chocolate chips to the tops of each dough ball if desired.
Bake for 10 minutes! Sprinkle sea salt on top after baking if desired.
Let cookies cool on sheet for at least 5 minutes, then cool completely on a rack. Store, tightly covered, at room temperature for up to 5 days.
Note on measuring flour: for best results, please either weigh your flour (see notes in the post) or make sure you use the “spoon and level” method for measuring flour, rather than using your measuring cup to scoop flour directly from the bag. The spoon and level method produces a lighter cup of flour, while scooping from the bag produces a packed, heavier cup that will prevent the cookies from spreading as they should.Freezing cookies and cookie dough: baked cookies can be frozen, tightly wrapped in plastic and stored in a freezer bag, for up to 3 months. Simply thaw at room temperature for an hour or heat in the microwave for 30 seconds to serve. Cookie dough can also be frozen and baked later: scoop dough onto a flat surface like a plate or baking sheet, and place in the freezer for an hour. Then store frozen cookie dough balls in a freezer-safe bag to be baked whenever cookie cravings strike! Bake from frozen for 12 minutes at 350 degrees F, or 14 minutes if you like them crispy on the edges.
