Metropolitan Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookies

this afternoon i made these cookies with the girls. the metropolitan bakery is in philadelphia. though i have never visited the bakery, i just bought their cookbook. their chocolate chip cookies jumped out at me because they called for ground up oats and grated milk chocolate in the cookie dough. i had never seen these ingredients before in a chocolate chip cookie recipe and had to try them. these cookies are fantastic. they are crunchy yet chewy and have a delicious nutty flavour. you should definately try them and i will definately be making a trip to the metropolitan bakery soon. here's the recipe...

...recipe slightly adapted from The Metropolitan Bakery Cookbook
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk chocolate chunks, grated
1 1/2 Cups butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups dark chocolate, chopped

1. Preheat the oven to 375. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a food processor grind the oats into a fine flour. In a large bowl combine the oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and grated milk chocolate. Mix together and set aside.

3. In the bowl of an electric mixer beat the butter until creamy. Add the sugars and beat until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time. Beat after each addition. Beat in the vanilla. At low speed beat in the flour until just combined. Stir in the chopped chocolate.

4. Drop the dough in 2 teaspoon portions on the cookie sheets. Bake for 10 minutes, rotating the cookie sheets between the upper and lower racks of the oven halfway through cooking. Let cool a couple of minutes on the cookie sheets, then let cool completely on wire racks.
