Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

5. Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
6. Fold in the chocolate chips.
7. Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop dough onto the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
8. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly golden brown around the edges.
9. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Additional notes:
– For extra chewy cookies, chill the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before baking.
– Substitute the semi-sweet chocolate chips for white chocolate or milk chocolate for a different flavor.
– Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
