Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Elise Malm


Growing up I never liked oatmeal cookies because they had raisins. But when I found this recipe under the lid of the Quaker Oats Box, I thought I'd substitute the raisins with chocolate and see if I liked it. And I LOVE THEM!

How to Make Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies


  • 1Beat together butter & sugars, until creamy. Then once creamy beat for another minute on med-high speed.
  • 2Add eggs & vanilla. Beat until well incorporated.
  • 3In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt; mix together very well. Then add the flour mixture to the butter & sugar mixture. Beat slowly until well incorporated. DO NOT OVER-BEAT (meaning once it is fully incorporated, stop the machine and move to next step)
  • 4Stir in oats and chocolate chips. Beat slowly until incorporated.
  • 5Drop by rounded Tablespoons onto un-greased cookie sheet. And bake for 9-12 minutes. Longer for crispier cookies, less time for softer cookies. (I prefer the softer ones)
  • 6Once the cookies are done, let them sit on the cookie sheet for at least one minute and then move to a cooling rack. Enjoy!!
