Toasted Almond & Chocolate Chunk Oat Cookies

This is an experiment that turned out fabulous. Salty toasted almonds and rich dark chocolate. Yum! The texture is perfect.

Toasted Almond & Chocolate Chunk Oat Cookies
1 cup unsalted butter
2 cups dark brown sugar
2 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 tsp soda
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate pieces
3/4 cup of slivered almonds, toasted and salted (toast on cookie sheet in oven until golden then cool before mixing into dough)

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Mix together butter and sugar until light and whipped. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until blended. Combine dry ingredients (flour, oats, soda, baking powder, salt) and add to wet. Mix until moistened. Fold in chocolate pieces and almonds (I actually do this with my hands. It's part of the fun of making cookies.) Roll by hand into large pieces the size of golf balls. Place on cookies sheet, spaced apart. Cook for about 12 minutes or until very slightly golden. Do not overcook!
