Sunday, January 6, 2013 Rosemary Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup olive oil
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
3 cups oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/8+ teaspoon of Penzy's powdered rosemary *
1 teaspoon finely chopped lemon zest **
1 cup chocolate chips

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Put aside.

Mix olive oil and sugar in a big bowl until it has an even consistency. Add one egg at a time, mixing until fully incorporated after each one.

Stir in vanilla.

Stir in dry ingredients. When batter is coming together add chips and continue to stir until all the ingredients are combined.

* I put 1/8 teaspoon on rosemary in the flour mixture and then stirred it up. If you can smell the rosemary there's enough. If you can't smell it add more in small increments.

** I used a peeler to take the yellow zest off 1/4 of a large lemon and chopped it very finely on a cutting board with a sharp knife.

Scoop onto parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake at 325 for 12-15 minutes.
