1/2cupunsalted butter, at room temperature (113 grams)
1cuppacked light or dark brown sugar(215 grams)
1 ½cupall-purpose flour(180 grams)
2cupsold-fashioned oats(200 grams)
1cupchopped semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate(170 grams)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
In the bowl of stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, or in a bowl with a hand-held mixer, beat the butter and brown sugar together on high speed until pale and creamy, about 3-5 minutes. Scrape down the bowl and add the eggs one at a time, mixing after each. Mix in the vanilla.
In a separate bowl combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Add to the stand mixer and mix on low until incorporated. Add the oats and chocolate chunks and mix until just combined.
Bake until edges just begin to turn brown, about 8-10 minutes.
Let cool on the baking pan 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store cookies in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
You can use packaged chocolate chunks, or you can roughly chop up a chocolate. I like to use roughly chopped chocolate because the smaller pieces yield melted chocolate throughout the whole cookie while the bigger chunks provide the traditional crunch and flavor of chocolate chips/chunks.
