Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

Updated on October 16, 2016

My Secret Recipe - Revealed!

These are my famous Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies!

Delicious and nutritious, they are the perfect blend for a yummy healthy snack. The oatmeal has fiber (very important for your heart-health!), and there's just enough chocolate to satisfy your sweet tooth.

These Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies mix up in a hurry (no electric mixer required!), and the dough refrigerates well. Make a big batch and be ready to spoon out a cookie sheet full of warm delicious Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies anytime at all! :)

Finished Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Dough.


  • 3/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 3/4 cup White Sugar
  • 1 cup of Margarine
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 cups Oats
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) Chocolate Chips


  1. Stir both kinds of sugar (brown and white) together with the Soft Margarine and the Egg in a big bowl. Keep stirring until they are are creamed together.
  2. Add the Vanilla, and stir again until the vanilla is completely integrated, (no streaks showing).
  3. Add the flour the creamed mixture slowly. If you add it a half a cup at a time, you'll be able to work it in without having to to dirty up the electric mixer. I use a scraper-spatula, to keep cleaning the sides of the bowl as I work.
  4. Fold in the Oats. Be sure to reach tho the bottom of the bowl as you're doing this, so you don't leave any pockets of the creamed mixture "un-oated".
  5. Finally, stir in your chocolate chips. It'll make your dough a bit lumpy-looking, but that's okay.
  6. Drop spoonfuls of the dough onto your cookie sheet (or onto disposable foil if you hate to wash cookie sheets!), then bake in a pre-heated 350 degrees Fahrenheit oven for 10-11 minutes. You'll know they're done when the *bottom* edges start to turn golden. DON'T wait for the tops to turn, or they'll be too done.
  7. Let them cool on the foil for just a minute or two, and they will peel off nicely without having to dirty up a spatula. (Do you see a theme here? I don't have a dishwasher...LOL)
  8. Serve with ice cold milk! Yummy!!! :)
