Recipe by

Chewy and more-ish - a lunch box staple! My family loves these. I like dark and white chocolate, but any combination would work. Allow to cool before storing.

How To Make betty's oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies

  • 1
    Pre-heat oven to 355oF/180oC and line baking trays with baking paper.
  • 2
    Beat the butter and sugars until thick and creamy, add the eggs and vanilla and beat until well mixed.
  • 3
    Add in remaining ingredients and beat through (I use my mixer for the whole process). Drop dessert-spoonfuls of dough on the trays and gently press with your fingers, allowing some spreading room (I get about 10 per tray)
  • 4
    Bake in the prepared oven to 10 - 11 minutes. Cool on the trays.
