Today I’m sharing an easy chocolate chip cookie recipe.
I wish I could claim these as my own but I can’t. My awesome friend, Sarah, is the one who came up with these delicious morsels! In the past 4 years, I’ve probably asked her for this recipe 5 times. People like me need a blog so they cannot lose recipes.
These are not healthy cookies but if you’re looking for some yummy HEALTHY cookies, check out the recipe for my chocolate chip cookies with beans.
But back to these babies, I like my chocolate chip cookies chewy rather than cakey. The secret ingredient in this recipe is quick-cooking oatmeal.
This easy chocolate chip cookie recipe makes about 3 1/2 dozen, so half it unless you are making these for a crowd.
WARNING: They’re highly addictive, I dare you eat just one! These cookies are a rare treat but so worth it!
Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies with Oatmeal
- 1 c. Butter
- 1 c. Brown Sugar
- 1 c. Sugar
- 2 Eggs
- 2 tsp Vanilla
- 1 1/2 c. Flour
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 3 c. Oatmeal
- 12 oz Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
Cream together the butter and sugars. Add in the eggs one at a time and mix well. Stir in the vanilla. Add all the dry ingredients except the chocolate chips. Mix until throughly blended. Stir in the chocolate chips.
(*This is helpful if you find your dough spreads out too much.) Refrigerate dough for 20 minutes. In the meantime, preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Scoop cookie dough onto a greased cookie sheet or ungreased stoneware pan.
Bake 10-12 min, turning at the 5-6 minute mark. Remove from oven when cookies are slightly browned on the edges. They will finish baking on the hot pan.
Let cookies cool slightly on pan and remove to cool completely on a wire rack.
