Use 2 large bowls.

1. Mix first 4 ingredients together in the bigger bowl.

2. Mix next 4 ingredients together in other bowl.

3. Add second mixture to first in larger bowl. Blend well.

4. Add oats. Mix well.

5. Add chocolate chips and vanilla. Mix well. Dough should be stiff but a little sticky. Refrigerate if necessary.

6. Form dough into golf-ball sized balls and place on cookie sheet, spaced a little over an inch apart.

7. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-15 minutes. Cookies should be just brown on top, with golden brown bottoms and around ½-inch thick. Chocolate chips on bottom should NOT burn! Tips: 1. Use an oven thermometer.

2. DO NOT OVERBAKE!!!

3. If you are using an electric oven, the bottoms of the cookies will likely burn unless you use some oven tiles on the bottom rack, or use one of the magic double-layered cookies sheets.

4. Use REAL ingredients. Don't skimp! You're worth it! 5. If cookies collapse on cooling and look greasy, then add another cup of oats to the dough.

6. If oats do not mix into the dough and cookies have a lot of visible oat flakes, then you may be using too much oats. The cookies should be chewy.

7. Store them in an air-tight container with a slice of bread to keep them from getting hard.
