1/2 cup rolled oats
1-1/4 cups chocolate chunks

2. In a large bowl, combine the butter and both sugars; beat with an electric mixer at medium speed until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla extract; set aside.
3. Sift the flour, baking powder and baking soda into a small bowl. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, beating continuously. Stir in the rolled oats and chocolate chunks.
