Total time: 
Serves: 24 cookies
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2½ cups rolled oats
  • 6 ounces white chocolate
  • sprinkling of sea salt (I used Maldon)
  1. Preheat oven to 360F. Line two baking sheets with Silpats or baking paper.
  2. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a medium bowl.
  3. Beat the butter and both sugars in a food mixer on medium for a few minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and mix for a minute on low speed.
  4. Remove bowl from mixer, add the flour in batches and stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture is just incorporated. Add the oats and white chocolate and stir again.
  5. Depending how large you like your cookies, measure out the dough into 1½ to 2 tablespoon pieces. (I made mine on the smaller side.)
  6. Roll into balls, place on the Silpat sheets and flatten slightly.
  7. Sprinkle a little sea salt on each cookie.
  8. Bake until cookies are golden brown, about 16 - 18 minutes, rotating baking sheets halfway through. Remove from the oven, let sit for a couple of minutes, then transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool.
