Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Cookies

The first time that I made chocolate chip cookies for my Chief Culinary Consultant, there was a serious “uh oh” moment. I enthusiastically presented him with a plate of my favorite thick and chewy chocolate chip cookies, and waited for him to take a bite. He said they were delicious, but… The dreaded “but.” I held my breath. He asked why they didn’t have oats in them. Confused, I told him that I had made regular chocolate chip cookies, not oatmeal cookies. As it turns out, the chocolate chip cookies he had growing up always had oats in them. It’s been over four years and we still don’t see eye-to-eye on chocolate chip cookies – from the inclusion (or exclusion) of oats to the ratio of dough to chocolate chips, we just don’t have the same tastes. I’ve realized that I’ll never be able to make him love the same types of chocolate chip cookies I do, so I extended an olive branch. I made straight-up oatmeal-chocolate chip cookies with the ratio of dough to chips that he likes. Everyone deserves cookie utopia, after all!

Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are very similar to my favorite chewy oatmeal-raisin cookies, but I left out the spices, added some vanilla and threw in the chocolate chips. You can make these cookies smaller or larger, depending on your personal preference, just be sure to adjust the baking time accordingly. You know I love large cookies, so I often make these larger than the two-tablespoonful size called for below.

Have you had any cookie disagreements at your house? I’m pretty sure that “his” and “hers” cookie jars are in our future ;-)

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: About 2 dozen cookies (depending on size)

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Thick and chewy oatmeal cookies that are loaded with chocolate chips.

Ingredients:

1½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup (8 ounces) unsalted butter, softened but still cool
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1½ cups semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F; adjust oven racks to low and middle positions. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. Whisk the flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl; set aside.

3. Cream together the butter and both sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and then mix in the vanilla.

4. Stir in the flour mixture with a wooden spoon or a large rubber spatula, then stir in the oats and chocolate chips.

5. Using 2 heaping tablespoons per cookie, roll the dough into balls and place on the cookie sheets, spacing them at least 2 inches apart. Bake until the cookie edges are just turning golden brown, but the middles are still quite pale, about 12 to 14 minutes, rotating the sheets from front to back and top to bottom halfway through the baking time. Cool the cookies on the baking sheets for 2 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool for at least 30 minutes. Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.

    My husband only likes dry, crunchy cookies, and (horror of horrors) prefers store-bought to homemade. Not that he won’t eat homemade cookies, but if there’s ever a choice, he always chooses store-bought. I like chewy, homemade cookies. It works out though, because I’m not tempted to eat his cookies, and he’s not too tempted to eat mine.

    You always have such beautiful photos. This recipe is very similar to our “family” recipe (aka, the one my mom used). We make my standard chocolate chip cookies with 2 cups of oatmeal, 2 cups of rice krispies, and a bag of mini chocolate chips – I find there’s more chocolate in each cookie with the minis. Then my daughter, the toffee chip lover, came along and suggested I add a bag of Heath toffee chips. So I reduce the oats and rice krispies to make room for the toffee chips and they’re fantastic. We call them Kyra’s mix cookies. My aunt like to use corn flakes in hers and we’ve been known to throw in mac nuts and coconut when we’re in a Hawaiian mood. I think the benefit of the oats is that the cookies keep their texture over a few days – if they last that long!

    Oats are a great addition to any cookie really. A delish way to add more texture too. Sounds like his and her cookie jars are a fun idea. I would eat out of both of them though.

    One of my all time favorite cookies was a double batch – 1 of the Nestle’s toll house cookie recipe and 1 of the Quaker Oats oatmeal cookie (minus raisins). I just make one batch of each and combine them. Then bake. They’re the best of both worlds!

    At my house we disagree on my hubby’s favorite cookie, the Peanut Butter cookie. My Mom always made them as Peanut Butter Blossom cookies adding the all important Hershey’s kiss. Hubby is a purist. Our son prefers them as I do with the kiss – fortunately I can make a batch and make some of each to keep everyone happy. :)

    Now that’s true love! My hubby and I are completely different in our dessert tastes. In his mind, more chocolate is ALWAYS better. While I love a classic chocolate chip cookie, he’ll always pick the double chocolate chocolate chip cookie. While I’ll swoon over blondies, he can’t resist a brownie. I like cobbler. He likes fudge. So I guess I just have to make them all ;). Poor us.

    Not sure I’ve ever heard of chocolate chip cookies with oatmeal, but they look amazing. Everyone does deserve to have their favorite cookie every now and then. And totally agree on big cookies. I always assume I’ll get roughly half the number of cookies a recipe calls for. Life’s too short to eat small cookies! Strangely I rarely have to extend the baking time to achieve perfectly baked cookies.

      Hi Cassia, Your butter may have been too soft and/or you may have baked them just a little too long. Be sure you’re using parchment paper, as well, and not spraying your cookie sheet or greasing it, because that could absolutely do it.

      Hi Carmen, It could be that, but it could also be that your oven temperature is off. If it’s on the low side, that could contribute them not spreading.

    I like your post and the little, personal story so I’m trying your recipe. I’ve got my fingers crossed that they really are chewy and not cake-y (those eggs make me nervous)!
    My husband and I disagree about cookies too (he likes chewy and I like super crunchy) but neither of us prefer cake-y cookies.
    He’s going out of town for work in the morning, so I’m making him a care package with your cookies.

          You do not bake them for 24 minutes. You cook each sheet for 12 to 14 minutes. 24 minutes is the total for baking two sheets back to back.

    Oatmeal chocolate chips are my favorite cookies. I used to get the recipe from the back of the oatmeal can but it is no longer there. I made these cookies following the recipe exactly and mine came out flat as pancakes. I did not over mix as I know that will make them flat. I was curious as to why baking powder, not soda was used as all the other recipes on-line called for soda.

      Hi Pamela, No, I would not recommend using steel cut oats in these cookies, the results would be vastly different and I don’t believe the steel cut oats would absorb enough moisture, leaving them fairly raw and crunchy.

    I made these and they are a bit dry. Was hoping for a chewy cookie. Maybe too much flour?? I did not over cook so not sure what happened?

      Hi Amy, These definitely are not dry cookies; I don’t like crisp or thin cookies, so I definitely made these to be chewy. If you added extra flour, that definitely could have had an effect, otherwise, be sure not to over bake them as well.

    These little babies turned out perfect. My house smells amazing, brown sugary, chocolatey, oaty goodness has filled every corner. They’re golden crisp edges hold in the puffed up warm and gooey centers. I was surprised to see that SallysBakingAddiction didn’t have this recipe (tons of other yummy looking oat cookies) and was so pleased that you did! Between the both of you babes, I have quite the index myself. Thanks for sharing love.

    I’ve made these three times. The first two they turned out great! People loved them. They were so thick and chewy! This last time they got incredibly flat and burned on the edges! I can’t seem to think of anything I did differently. Was it the butter maybe?

      Hi Laura, If the first two times turned out okay, I’d be led to believe that anything you may have changed the third time (be it butter or something else), would be the culprit.
