Oatmeal Cookie (Cleverly Inspired)

My friend made these cookies and shared them with us at the park. So delicious AND healthy. The kids loved them. She didn't add chocolate chips but added almonds. So good and can't wait to make these. 


1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar

1 cup butter or margarine, softened 

1 teaspoon vanilla 

1 egg 

2 cups quick-cooking oats 

1 1/2 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose or unbleached flour 

1 teaspoon baking soda 

1/4 teaspoon salt 

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz) 

1 cup chopped nuts, if desired (I didn't)

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir brown sugar and butter until blended. Stir in vanilla and egg until light and fluffy. Stir in oats, flour, baking soda and salt; stir in chocolate chips and nuts. 

2 Onto ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart.

3 Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
