It's baking season so I have another cookie recipe coming in hot for you all. This time, it's my ultimate favorite cookie. A slightly elevated classic. Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
The main reason I love these so much is because they're all the deliciousness of a classic chocolate chip cookie, with the chewiness and mild flavor from the oats. I also add in a dash of cinnamon to make them extra cozy and tasty.
Because the oats add the nice chewiness, these also keep really well and remain a great texture all week long. That is, if you have amazing self control. Otherwise, they're gone in one day.
Aside from the flavor and texture, I'd say another great thing about these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies is the really minimal fridge time. They only take about 45 minutes to chill in the fridge as opposed to some other recipes that ask for a few hours-1 day.
So yes, it's baking season and there's cookies galore this time of year, but these are a winner any time of year, so don't forget about em.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 stick unsalted butter room temp
- ¾ cup dark brown sugar packed
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg room temp
- 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 ½ cups old fashioned oats
- 1 cup flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
- In a large bowl, beat together the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Once that is combined, beat in the egg and vanilla extract for about 1 minute or so until it lightens in color a tad. Then add in the old fashioned oats until combined.
- In a separate medium bowl, gently mix together the dry ingredients - flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
- Slowly add in the dry ingredients into the oat mixture (I did in two portions). Once all combined, fold in the chocolate morsels.
- Grab a large baking sheet lined with parchment and scoop out 1 tablespoon sized cookie dough balls. Lay them all out on the baking sheet in 1 layer, and put in the fridge for about 45 minutes.
- Preheat your oven to 350℉ and bake the cookies for 12 - 14 minutes. 12 minutes if you like them a little more doughy, and 14 if you like them a little more well-done.
- Optional: sprinkle with flaky sea salt when they come out of the oven.
