These Are Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Are A Classic!

Easy cookie recipes like Chocolate Chip Cookies, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, and Peanut Butter Cookies are on regular rotation in my house and certainly are the most popular cookies on my site. We all love a classic cookie, especially one that stays soft and fresh for days.

I love Oatmeal Cookies so much! I have many recipes here on my site, but I realized I had never posted a classic Oatmeal Chocolate Chip! My Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are famous in my family, because they are simply the BEST and I thought that chocolate needed a time to shine too!

How Do You Make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies?

  • This is an easy cookie recipe that requires no chill time!
  • And of course they are adaptable as well…meaning you can use any flavor chip you like, for example white chips, butterscotch, or a combo! And certainly you could use raisins in place of the chocolate chips as well!
  • I use Quick Oats in this oatmeal cookie recipe. I love the quick oats because it makes the texture more uniform. You can absolutely use rolled (old fashioned) oats if you prefer, they will just have a slightly different texture.
  • I love using coarse sea salt in my cookie recipes, and this is no exception. The salty little bits just add an extra something that sets them apart!

How To Make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Can You Freeze Oatmeal Cookies?

Yes, absolutely! You can freeze the baked cookies OR freeze the dough before you bake them.

  • To freeze baked cookies, store them in an airtight container, or zip-top bag for up to a month! Let them thaw at room temperature and enjoy!
  • OR to get that fresh baked taste back, after they are thawed, pop them into a 350°F oven for 2-3 minutes and enjoy warm cookies!
  • To freeze the unbaked dough, portion out the dough in scoops and place them on a baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for an hour or so, or until they are frozen. Transfer the cookie dough scoops into a zip-top bag and place in the fridge!
  • To bake frozen dough, you don’t have to thaw it, just bake the dough frozen and add a few minutes to the bake time!

is it ok to just use regular salt?

These are delicious! I halved the recipe and it came out perfect, made 15 bigger cookies. Definitely listen to the direction where it says to not overcook! I got nervous because the middles were so gooey so I kept them in a few minutes too long but they were still delicious!

I made these for Easter and they came out great! I do think they tasted a bit salty, but didn’t mind the salty/sweet combo. Maybe a bit less salt next time. Still the perfect texture and easy to make, thanks for the recipe!

Happy to say this recipe has been added to my personal recipe book! I love the fact of no refined white sugar and I mix buckwheat flour flour with my unbleached flour 50% Adds a natural nutty flavor without nuts in the mix the cookie is very dark but super delicious!!

Your recipe asks for dark brown sugar, is regular brown sugar or what we call golden sugar here ok to use instead. I look forward to making these – Oatmeal Cookies are my favorite Cookies.
Thank you

Why do you use quick oats instead of old fashioned?

Dec 5, 2019 3:12 pm

Your recipe calls for butter but most cookie recipes say unsalted butter. Can salted butter be used?
