Back To School "Cowboy" Cookies

I know a lot of kids went back to school a few weeks ago, but in our neck of the woods most schools start back tomorrow. My little guy actually has one more week left until preschool starts back up, but with so many friends beginning their first day of kindergarten, I wanted to share this perfect back to school sweet treat!

Unlike a lot of oatmeal cookie recipes that I've tried, these are moist, dense, chewy and delicious. Not to mention, they also work great as "mommy therapy" for those of you who tend to be a little weepy on the first day of school (myself included)! Good luck mamas, your babies will be just fine :)

Cowboy Cookies
Adapted from

1 1/3 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup melted butter
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a medium bowl combine all of the dry ingredients, be sure to include the chocolate chips. In a separate bowl, mix together melted butter, egg and vanilla. Add mixture to the dry ingredients and mix together. You may need to use your hands to finish mixing. Shape into walnut sized balls. Place 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes in the preheated oven. Transfer from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.
