Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Oatmeal

This is one of my favorite recipes for chocolate chip cookies. This recipe is pretty near fail-proof and is one I've used for years. The flavor combo works to produce a rich-tasting cookie.The chocolate and oatmeal make a perfect combo, offering a rich flavor and a delightful texture.

This is a straight-forward, one-bowl recipe. You'll need a large bowl because this recipe makes lots of cookies. The hardest part will be trying to stay out of these once they're cooked.


  • 2 cups 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


  1. Cream first four ingredients together in a large bowl until well mixed.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients.
  3. Add in 1 cup or more of chocolate chips.
  4. Chill in fridge 1 hour.
  5. Roll into balls and place on cookie sheets. Press lightly with a fork.
  6. Bake at 325 degrees for 10 minutes and then reduce heat to 300 degrees so that cookie middles cook.
  7. Remove cookies from oven and set on a flat surface to cool.

Cookies 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 up on cookies for the freezer.
