This is basically a variation or the Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. I used 1 cup of chocolate chips instead of raisins.

How Didi eat it:

Oatmeal Chocolate Chips Cookies
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup chocolate chips
1 ts vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg/ ground cinnamon (optional - i prefer to skip this)
2 sticks unsalted butter (1/2 pound), softened but still firm
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
3 cups rolled oats

1.  Beat butter until creamy using the pedal. Add sugars; beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs one at a time.
2. Mix flour, salt, baking powder, and nutmeg together, then stir them into butter-sugar mixture with wooden spoon spatula. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.
3. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Form dough into about 1 1/2-inch balls, placing each dough round onto one of two parchment paper–covered, large cookie sheets. 
4. Bake until cookie edges turn golden brown, about 22 minutes.  Let cool at least 30 minutes before serving.
