Cream together butter, caster sugar and dark brown soft sugar in a large bowl. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and cinnamon; stir into the cookie dough mixture. Mix in oats. Cover and chill cookie dough for at least one hour.
Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Grease baking trays.
Roll the dough into golf ball sized balls and place 5cm apart on prepared baking trays. Flatten each cookie with a large fork dipped in sugar.
Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 8 to 10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Overall I quite liked these cookies. I did find there were a little too many oats, but that may be down to personal preference. Reduced oats to 2 1/2 cups, added 1/4 cup of Raisins and 1/4 cup of mini choc chips. Followed the recipe exactly - 12 Jan 2013
