This simple recipe for soft, chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies creates a moist and flavorful dessert that will make everyone's day a little bit better
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 egg, large
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1¾ cup oatmeal (Old-Fashioned, NOT quick cooking)
  • ¾ cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt (unless you use salted butter...then omit the additional salt)
  • 1½ cups semisweet chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy and the color has lightened slightly.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla, and mix to combine.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the oatmeal, flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt (if using). Mix well and fully incorporate the baking soda into the mix.
  5. Add the oatmeal mixture into the butter mixture, and mix until a dough is formed. Stir in chocolate chips.
  6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and place rounded scoops of dough onto the paper about 2 inches apart from each other.
  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes. How long depends entirely on how large your scoops are. Small cookies will take several minutes less than large cookies. Keep a close eye on them, and remove as soon as the edges of the cookies start to turn golden brown.
  8. Let cool for 3-4 minutes on the baking sheet, and then carefully remove to a wire rack.
