Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Chewy oatmeal cookies laden with chocolate chips -- with no raisins or nuts in sight. Inspired by Averie Cooks' "Best Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies"
Servings 4 dozen cookies


  • 1 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract or bean paste
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 bag milk chocolate chips


  • Using a mixer, cream together butter, vanilla, brown sugar, and granulated sugar.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, scraping bowl between each addition.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, oats, cinnamon, and baking soda. Gradually add this mixture to your wet ingredients, mixing on medium speed until just combined.
  • Add in your chocolate chips, again mixing until just combined.
  • Scoop dough with a tablespoon and roll into balls. Place balls in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours, until they become firm.
  • Move oven rack to highest position and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake cookies for 10-11 minutes.
  • If using an Airbake pan, allow cookies to cool on pan before removing. If using a single-layer cookie sheet, remove cookies promptly and allow to cool on wax paper or a wire rack.


For best results, use old-fashioned oats -- NOT instant or quick cook!
