Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

The perfect cookies for special occasions or just to have kicking around the house. Whether you are enjoying them fresh out of the oven, two days later, or as the cookies in an ice cream sandwich, you absolutely cannot go wrong!











  • 8 ounces unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ cups oats
  • 2 cups chocolate chips ( 60% cocoa)


  1. Using your stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, start to cream your butter by adding it to the mixer (at room temperature and soft) and mixing it on medium-low speed until it starts to become light and airy (about 2 minutes).
  2. After 2 minutes, add the vanilla extract and then slowly stream in the brown sugar, followed by the granulated sugar. Continue mixing on medium-low speed for another 2 minutes until the sugar/butter mixture is light and airy.
  3. While the butter/sugar mixture is creaming, measure the flour, the baking soda, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt into one bowl and set aside. Measure the oats and chocolate chips and put them together into another bowl and set aside.
  4. After two minutes, stop the mixer and scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl and paddle. Turn the mixer back on to medium-low speed and add each egg, one-by-one, waiting to add the second one until the first one is fully incorporated.
  5. Once both eggs are incorporated, add about 1/3rd of the flour mixture into the butter/sugar mixture and mix on the lowest setting to incorporate. (Be careful not to launch flour everywhere.)
  6. Once the flour is incorporated, repeat the process 2 more times to incorporate all the flour. (do not mix more than you need to to incorporate the flour.)
  7. Once all the flour is incorporated and the dough has formed, add the oats and chocolate chips and mix gently to incorporate evenly.
  8. Once incorporated, wrap the dough with plastic and chill slightly before shaping. (about 15-20 minutes)
  9. Preheat your oven to 350 F and spray or butter your baking sheet pan.
  10. After the dough firms up slightly, shape the cookies into balls that are about 3 tablespoons worth of dough each and place them on your greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 F for about 12-15 minutes.
  11. Upon removing from the oven, allow them to cook slightly on the baking sheet (about 5 minutes) before moving to a plate or cooling rack.
