My kids just love these cookies prepared by the cook, Miss Julie, at their school. I've scoured the other recipes on the site and her ratio of baking powder to baking soda is different that most so here it is for my family and yours. We raise our milk glasses to you Miss Julie! :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl cream the margarine with the granulated and brown sugars.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.
  4. Stir in the salt, baking powder, baking soda and flour.
  5. Add oatmeal and mix only until blended - do not over mix.
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  7. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  8. Using a #40 scoop or Tablespoons, drop cookies onto the tray - about 12 per average cookie sheet.
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until desired brownness (she under-bakes because they continue to bake after they leave the oven and because the school children like them soft and chewy).

Awesome cookies. Cut down on the white sugar just a tad and added a little more vanilla. My brother was eating the dough and said, "This is amazing!" (He loved the baked cookies, too). Though I was expecting a puffier cookie due to the baking powder, these were soft, chewy, and moist! Thanks for a great recipe! :)

Absolutely heavenly! I loved them. Even at 10 minutes they were at their softest, and the chocolate was at it's moistest, which I loved.
