How to Make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

The best oatmeal chocolate chips cookies start with the chocolate, of course! You can use either dark or milk chocolate chips.

Ingredients & Prep 

First, assemble all your ingredients and preheat your oven! The process goes a lot smoother if you have everything set out.

  • Make sure the butter is at room temperature. Cold butter won’t blend as well and fully melted butter won’t create the loft (height) you want.
  • Eggs will whip up fluffier if they are at room temperature.
  • Line your pan with parchment paper (or a Silpat baking mat) for perfect cookies and easy cleanup!

Mix & Bake

Next mix all of your ingredients together!

  1. Whisk together the dry ingredients together and set aside.
  2. Cream together your butter, sugars and vanilla using an electric mixer until fluffy. Don’t have an electric mixer? No worries, this recipe will turn out great with a wooden spoon and a little muscle!  Add in the eggs.
  3. Gradually add in the dry mixture a little bit at a time until it’s all mixed well and looks uniform. Fold in chocolate chips.

To Bake Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

How Long to Bake Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies: Bake 10 to 12 minutes in the middle rack of the oven. Once removed from oven,  allow to cool about 2 minutes on the pan before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

This recipe makes 2 dozen 3” wide cookies, more or less, depending on how big you want them.

To Make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Ahead

The dough for these cookies can be made ahead and refrigerated for about 1 week. Allow the dough to soften to room temperature before scooping.

To Freeze: This dough can also be frozen before baking. Scoop dough onto a parchment lined pan (they can be close together since you’re not baking them on the pan) and freeze. Once frozen, remove from the pan and store in a freezer bag or airtight container.

To bake from frozen: Place 2″ apart on the baking pan. Bake directly from frozen about 12-15 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.

How Long do Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Last?

Oatmeal chocolate cookies will last in an airtight container or a ziplock bag for up to two weeks.

Pro Tip: If you want to keep them even fresher and chewier, place a slice of sandwich bread inside the container to keep them fresher longer!

  1. These are my favorite chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. I make them quite often and everyone loves them. The last time I made them, I forgot I had run out of vanilla extract so I used orange extract instead. This is how I will be making them from now on. I could not believe how good the orange flavor tasted with the chocolate.5 stars

  2. For the person who would like raisins instead of chocolate chips, would you suggest an equal quantity of raisins, covered with near boiling water until white edges appear, then drained and dried with a clean kitchen towel?

  3. This recipe is perfect. I used dark chocolate chips, some chopped dried, tart cherries and a tsp of cinnamon. Next level yumminess.5 stars

    1. I’ve only tried this recipe as written so I can’t say for sure how it will work without cornstarch. The cornstarch helps provide a tender consistency. If you try them without, let us know how it goes!

      1. In the oatmeal and chocolate chip cookie recipe it states butter, should I use unsalted or salted.

      2. Salted. We always use salted in our recipes unless noted. Enjoy Marie!
