I love being able to feature my friends' recipes.  Today I am sharing Fran's Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies.  She served them when a group of us met at her house to play cards.  The cookies were very good even though she forgot to add the oats.  We told her we would just call them Chocolate Chip Without the Oats Oatmeal Cookies.  lol .  She was disappointed because she said she really likes oats in cookie recipes.  She didn't remember where she found the recipe and has had it awhile.


1  1/4   cup softened margarine or butter ( okay to use light margarine/butter)
3/4    cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2   cup granulated sugar
1   egg
1   teaspoon vanilla
1   1/2   cup all-purpose flour
1   teaspoon baking soda
1   teaspoon salt
3   cups quick or old fashioned oats, uncooked
1   12-oz  (2   cups)  dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  

Beat together the margarine/butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
Beat in egg and vanilla.
Gradually add combined flour, baking soda, and salt, mixing until thoroughly blended. 
Stir in oats and chocolate chips.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake  9 - 11 minutes.
Cool   1  minute on cookie sheet then remove to wire rack to finish cooling.
Store in tightly covered container.
