Nutella Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 egg, at room temperature
1/3 cup Nutella
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla paste
1/2 cup 63% dark chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or silpats. In a medium sized bowl combine flour, oats and baking powder. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, Nutella and vanilla paste. Combine thoroughly. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the sweetened butter and mix until a very thick dough forms. Fold in the chocolate chips. Take care that they are distributed evenly. Form cookies by dropping a heaping 1 tablespoon of dough on the sheet 2 -2 1/2 inches apart. Flatten slightly. Bake 12 minutes. The centers still may look slightly shiny. Carefully remove to a wire rack to cool completely before serving.

Yield: about 1 1/2 dozen cookies
