Craving a Thick Cookie to Sink Your Teeth Into?


Chocolate Chip Cookies with Oatmeal

This is one of my favorite recipes for chocolate chip cookies. It's pretty near fail-proof and one I've relied on for years. The flavors work to produce a rich-tasting cookie that is so satisfying to bite into. The chocolate and oatmeal make a perfect combo, offering a delightful texture that is both slightly crunchy, yet soft in the middle.

Most cooks find that as the years go by, they amass a store of recipes they make again and again. This is one of those recipes. And it's straight-forward, too, with no fancy ingredients that you normally don't keep on hand and you put everything into one bowl. And speaking of bowls, you'll need a large bowl because this recipe makes lots of cookies.

Oatmeal or no, kids love these cookies, too. For everyone in the family, the hardest part will be trying to stay out of these once they come out of the oven.

Step #1

Assemble Your Ingredients


  • 2 cups room temperature butter (1 lb)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups oatmeal
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1-2 cups chocolate chips

Step #2

Make Your Cookies


  1. Cream first four ingredients together until well mixed.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients.
  3. Add in 1 cup or more of chocolate chips.
  4. Chill in fridge 1 hour. This step is important and helps cookies to retain their shape while being baked.
  5. Roll into balls and place on cookie sheets. Press lightly with a fork.

Step #3

Bake Your Cookies

Bake at 325 degrees for 10-15 minutes and then reduce heat to 300 degrees so that cookie middles cook. Test after 5 minutes.

Set to Cool

Remove cookies from oven and set on a flat surface to cool.

A Perfect Treat to Have with Tea


Freeze Well

These cookies freeze well and are every bit as good when thawed. This is a good recipe to use if you want to stock your freezer with cookies.

      I like that your recipe uses oatmeal and less flour. I'll try these and try freezing them too. Thanks.

      Freezing cookies is a really good idea. We had some extra Xmas cookies we laid flat in large ziplock bags and froze them.

      Last week I dethawed them and they were great. The oatmeal chocolate chip cookies were like they were fresh.
