Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

My friend Saren posted this family recipe on her blog last week.  I finally got a chance to make them and they are really good and have a healthy twist.  You can read her cookie story HERE.  I am only including the version that I used, but she has a lot of tips on add-ins and stuff.  After I finish this post, I have some dough to bake and then I am putting my cookies in the freezer for future enjoyment! 

2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
1/2 cup ground flax seed
1 1/2 cup brown sugar, loosely packed
1 cup white sugar
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups white flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 cups quick oats
1 cup chocolate chips

1.  Preheat convection oven to 330 degrees. 
2.  Mix first 6 ingredients together.
3.  Add next 5 ingredients and mix well.
4.  Next add the oats and chocolate chips, one cup at a time, and mix.
5.  Drop by spoonful (or scoop) onto a cookie sheet.
6.  Bake for 8-9 minutes.  Take out when slightly brown on edges but still a little doughy in the middle.  Let cool on wire rack.
