Betty's oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies

Betty Bramanis


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.
