Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

p 1-10-13 1 thm

This is hands down my favorite cookie recipe – so far. I’m always up for trying a new one, especially if it has chocolate in it (: So send your favorites my way!

The original recipe is found here. I read so many reviews and made enough changes, so that recipe won’t get you quite to how my cookies come out. Here’s my version:


1 c butter, softened

1 c brown sugar

1/2 c white sugar

2 eggs

2 t vanilla extract

1 3/4 c all purpose flour

1/2 t + 1/2 T baking soda

1/2 t salt

3 c quick-cooking oats {though I usually go up about half a cup or so – reasoning: the more oats, the more cookies ; ) }

1 c semisweet chocolate chips


1. Cream butter, brown sugar, & white sugar for 4-5 minutes – until fluffy and light.

2. Beat in eggs one at a time.

3. Stir in vanilla.

4. Combine flower, baking soda, and salt. Stir into butter/sugar mixture until they are just combined.

5. Chill for 2 hours.

6. Preheat oven to 325F.

7. Bake for 12 minutes on parchment paper.

8. Let cookies cool on baking sheet for a few minutes before moving them to a wire rack.
