  • 1 ¼ cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar (packed)
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking sheet with baking paper and set aside.
  2. Place oats into a food processor and blend for 15-20 seconds to lightly pulverise, shredding them into smaller pieces. If you are using quick cooking oats, omit this step.
  3. Add oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt to a bowl and mix well. Set aside.
  4. Using a stand mixer, cream butter and brown sugar together on medium/high speed until light and fluffy. Scrape the sides of the bowl and then turn the mixer on low speed and slowly add the maple syrup to the butter and sugar mixture. Beat on medium/high until light and fluffy.
  5. Add egg and continue mixing. Scrape the sides of the bowl, add vanilla, and mix until light and fluffy.
  6. Slowly add dry ingredients (everything but the chocolate chips) to the wet ingredients, ¼ cup at a time, mixing on low. Last, fold in the chocolate chips/chunks.
  7. Place the cookie dough in the fridge for 30 minutes to harden.
  8. Roll balls from the dough and flatten between your hands. Place on baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes.
  9. Remove cookies from the oven, let them cool.
  10. Enjoy!!
