5. Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Goji Berry Cookies by Tiana
Recipe:
 
Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 stick softened butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 to 2 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1 and 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries or goji berries (if you use goji berries be extra careful of them burning if they’re on the outside of the cookie)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
Directions:
First, combine the salt, baking powder, and baking soda and flour in a small bowl until combined.
In mixer on medium speed whip the butter until it’s fluffy and light.
Still on medium, mix in the brown and white sugars until combined (you may need to pause and spatula cause everything can get kind of sticky)
Add the eggs and vanilla to the bowl and mix on medium until combined.
Reduce the speed to low and add the flour mixture until just combined.
Then, with a wooden spoon, stir in the oats, chocolate chips, goji berries or cranberries according to your taste, and walnuts.
Put heaping spoonfuls on a baking mat or parchment paper and put in a preheated oven for 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes until the cookies are golden on the tops, shifting the trays between racks halfway through.
The more goodies you put in (chocolate, walnuts, etc) the faster they brown so keep an eye on them.
