Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 375.  In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy, about 4-5 minutes, scraping the bowl occasionally.  Beat in the egg and vanilla.

In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients.  Add by spoonfuls with them mixer on low, mixing until combined.  Add the chocolate chips.

Shape into balls with your hands, flatten slightly, and place cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet.

For larger cookies, bake for 7-8 minutes, and for smaller cookies, bake for 5-6, until golden brown around the edges, but gooey in the middle.  Let the cookies set up on the baking sheet for several minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.


Yields about 1 1/2 - 2 dozen cookies.
