Every weekend we have talented bakers that make the best of the best. Check out this recipe submitted by Mary Dubois, one of our hospitality team leaders. When we took photos of these we couldn't have just one. 

Ingredients:

1 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 cups rolled (old-fashioned) oats

1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

8 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature

1/2 cup light brown sugar (lightly packed)

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 bag semisweet chocolate chips or chunks

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2.  
  3. In a medium bowl, stir the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, oats, and walnuts together with a whisk or fork. 
  4. In a large bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar together for 30 seconds until well blended. Beat in the egg until smooth and barely fluffy. 
  5. With mixer running on medium high, drizzle the maple syrup, and vanilla until incorporated. Turn the mixer down to its lowest setting and gradually add the flour-oatmeal mixture. 
  6. Blend just to combine, and then mix in the chocolate chips. 
  7. Drop walnut-sized balls of dough onto a nonstick or parchment-lined cookie sheet at 3-inch intervals.
  8. With moistened fingers, flatten and round out the cookies slightly. 
  9. Bake for about 9 minutes, turn the pan once for even baking.  The cookies are done when they are slightly browned on top. Set cookie sheet on a rack to cool for a few minutes before using a spatula to remove to a cooling rack before serving.
