Ingredients

Cookies:

  • 1/2 cup (115 g) unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup (95 g) packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup (105 g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 11/2 tsp vanilla
  • 11/4 cup (230 g) unbleached all-purpose flour flour
  • 1 cup (100 g) old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup (115 g) dark chocolate chips

Topping:


Instructions

  1. If you are making caramel, do that first and let it cool while you bake the cookies.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 350 F (170 C) and line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment mix the sugars, pour in the butter and beat on high for a minute.
  4. Add the egg, yolk and vanilla and mix.
  5. Pour in the flour, oats, salt and baking soda and mix until it just comes together.
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  7. Scoop your cookies onto the baking sheets (I used a medium cookie scoop) and bake for 9-10 minutes until just done.
  8. Let them cool on the trays for a minute and then move to a cooling rack.
  9. Once the cookies are fully cooled drizzle them with caramel and sprinkle with sea salt.
  10. Store in an airtight container for up to a week.

Notes

If you don’t have the time or desire to make caramel break out a can of the store bought kind 🙂

The caramel stays soft and gooey so expect them to stick together a little when stacked.
