  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the butter and brown sugar on medium speed for about 3 minutes until creamy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula, then add the egg and vanilla and beat again until smooth.

  6. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes, rotating the pans from top to bottom and front to back halfway through, or until the edges are slightly golden but the centers are still pale.

  7. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes, then either slide the papers off the pans onto cooling racks or transfer the cookies with a spatula.

  8. Serve and enjoy!
