My Grandma Lola used to make these cookies every time we would visit. They are even good the second day. Just pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds!!

3 dozen


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda

  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 ½ cups butter

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar

  • 1 ½ cups packed brown sugar

  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 3 eggs

  • 4 cups semisweet chocolate chips

  • .30000001192093 cup wheat germ (Optional)

  • 3 cups rolled oats


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. In a medium size mixing bowl sift together flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder.

  3. In a large mixing bowl cream butter, white and brown sugars together until light and fluffy. Dribble vanilla into the creamed mixture. Beat the eggs, one at a time, into the mixture. Add the sifted ingredients to the creamed mixture. Beat until well mixed.

  4. Pour chocolate chips, wheat germ and oats into the mixture; fold into dough until well combined. Drop the dough by rounded teaspoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

  5. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges are just slightly brown. The cookies will look undercooked but that is the correct consistency. Cool on a wire rack.
