Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip CookiesYes, this is another cookie recipe.  I told you I’m addicted! Not much to say about these because they are just this recipe with chocolate chips instead of raisins.  Ben declared these as his favorite cookies the night I first made these.  (Here’s a hint: He says that about every cookie I’ve made lately!)  Flattering, but proof that he’s easy to please.  🙂

I think these are best eaten right out of the oven.  Just don’t burn your tongue. Instead, let them cool for at least 5 minutes then go ahead and indulge while the chocolate is still melted.  Yum!  You can also turn them into sandwich cookies, which is another one of Ben’s faves!

*Recipe update 3/17/11:  I cut the cinnamon down from 1 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon and loved the turn out.  Recipe reflects this new measurement below.

  1. THese look awesome! 🙂

  2. YUM! They look delicious!!!

  3. Oatmeal Chocolate Chip are my favorite!!! I need to try this recipe!

  4. These look SO good! I am a big fan of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies- YUM. They are the bf’s favorite too- well next to oatmeal raisin, but we all know I won’t be making those! haha 🙂


  5. Have to try this one! Love the oatmeal with chocolate chips.

  6. yum! I have some chocolate covered raisins that would go perfectly in here 🙂

  7. These cookies make me want to do the snow dance dance so I can make and devour these tomorrow! I have everything on hand! I’ve never had nutmeg in a cookie before!

  8. These sound delicious!! And they look pretty too!

  9. I’ve never made oatmeal choc chip cookies! I’m usually on a peanut butter or M&M kick! But these look good – You always make the perfect shaped cookie!

  10. I want to make these, but I’m convinced I’ll eat them all and ruin my ambition to eat better and lose weight… 🙂

  11. Wow, I just discovered you today and I love your blog! I have already printed out a bunch of your recipes and going to do some baking this week. Thank you for providing some fabulous ideas!

  12. You know, I’ve thought many times about subbing chocolate chips for the raisins, but I’ve never done it. Thanks for the inspiration.


  13. Maybe I was just in the mood for something sweet, but I baked these the other day and they were FANTASTIC! We’ve been devouring them. Thanks for posting this! Yum!!

  14. I just made these today (found the recipe on Pinterest) and they were the best cookies I have ever had!

  15. I made these cookies and they were quite awful. Sorry.

  16. Marie-Ève says:

    I am making these as we speak and I actually mixed the oats with the butter mix, will that change my cookies?

    • Hi Marie-Eve,
      I’m guessing I’m too late in responding, but I don’t think I would’ve been much help anyways. My best guess is that the cookies will be fine, but might be a little different in the resulting texture, but not enough to ruin them. How did they turn out?

  17. I was wondering if you’ve ever made these as bars instead of individual cookies?

  18. just made these cookies last night and they are amazing! thanks so much for posting this recipe 🙂

  19. Meredith MacDonald says:

    I have made this recipe of yours countless times, and I’m baking it now as I type for my dad 🙂 I added some Skor toffee bits I had leftover in my baking cupboard. They smell amazing. This is a great recipe and I thank you for sharing it 🙂 Delicious cookies every time!

  20. hi, i’m making these right now- the batter is amazing and i added dried cranberries! yummo.

  21. I followed this recipe to the letter and didn’t get the same result as the one in the picture. I think the oats are too much! Maybe next time, I’ll use 1 1/5 cups oats and ditch the cinnamon and nutmeg.

  22. Leah Cusick says:

    Made these the other night, they turned out lovely. Added a couple handfuls of raisins and some walnut (those are actually pretty technical measurements for me, lol) they’re absolutely delish! And I love that they stay nice and soft, oatmeal cookies should never be hard, if you ask me!

    So, thanks for the great recipe!

  23. These did not work for me, I tried twice and both times were a fail. They tasted pretty bad, they stuck to the bottom of pan really really bad and I tried different ways of preventing it, flat….

  24. Made these today and they’re fantastic – my 3 kids all love them! I followed the recipe exactly as it is. Thank you!
