These cookies just might be too good to be true. The recipe makes a large batch so have one or two and then take them to the office :)

Ingredients
2 1/4 cup dry rolled oats, divided
1/2 cup ghee, melted
1/3 cup grade B maple syrup
1/3 cup coconut palm sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (at least 70% dark)

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In a small food processor, pulse 1 1/4 cups oats until very fine. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars until fluffy and well-combined. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until smooth. Stir in the oat flour, oats*, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt until just incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips. Drop the cookie dough onto the prepared sheets, 1 tablespoon at a time, 2” apart. Bake until golden brown, about 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on the sheets for 5 minutes, until set. *soaking the remaining 1 cup of oats in almond milk to soften them, then squeezing them ‘dry’ in paper towels before adding them to the mixture may make these cookies more moist!
