These are the perfect Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. The cookies are both chewy, easy to make, and loaded with chocolate chips. These cookies are a family favourite, even my husband who doesn't have a sweet tooth enjoys them!
Why You'll Love Them
One bowl recipe. These cookies come together so easily and only use one bowl!
Amazing chewy texture. These cookies are for chewy cookie lovers, they're perfectly chewy!
Adaptable.I have nothing against a naked oatmeal cookie but adding chocolate chips makes them out of this world. You can substitute the chocolate for raison, but I have never liked raisins in any of my desserts.
Baking with Toddlers
I make all of my sweet treats with the help of my two toddlers (aged 3 and 1.5 yrs). I'm sure baking with older kids would be easier, at least I hope it will be. However, even baking with young children is a lot of fun!
What makes this recipe so great is that it is simple and quick. It's a great option for doing a fast activity the yields lots of fun even for the shortest attention spans.
This recipe only uses one bowl for mixing. This helps if your little ones like to throw dry ingredients and there is never an unattended bowl to worry about. There is no chilling required and from start to finish the cookies can be ready for the oven in as little as 10 minutes (usually when baking without little helpers).
The best jobs for the little helpers with this recipe will include mixing and pouring the ingredients into the bowl. With my toddlers it has helped them improve their fine motor and listening skills.
How to Make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Start by preheating your oven to 350 F and lining your baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl or your stand mixer with the paddle attachment on beat butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, this usually takes a few Add in the egg and vanilla extract and continue to mix.
In the same bowl you can now add in the baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Be sure all ingredients are mixed well together. Once well mixed stir in the flour, followed by the rolled oats, and lastly fold in the chocolate chips.
Spoon dough in 1 & 1/2 tbsp balls (I like to use a medium sized cookie scoop) and place them on a lined baking sheet 2 inches apart. Add additional chocolate chips on top of the cookie dough. This is optional but does give the cookies a aesthetically pleasing look.
Bake cookies for 9-10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. The middle of the cookies will still seem soft when removed from the oven. Allow cookies to cool on the pan before moving. The residual heat from the pan will continue cooking them.
Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
Bake them on your own or bake them with your kids, either way I’m sure you’ll love with these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies!

These cookies are more of a chewy oatmeal cookie but even after cooking it 9 mins. The center did look a bit uncooked. I still took them out of oven because the notes said it will still seem soft. I also let sit for 5-6 mins to cook before moving to the cooling rack. Still was mushy. The second batch I left in the oven for 10 mins and wasn’t as mushy. Taste better I guess it depends on everyone’s oven. The taste is good my family did enjoy them.
Thank you for the review. Yes, cooking time can be tricky to judge sometimes because everyones oven heats differently. I also find that using different cookie pans can make a difference as well. I'm happy your family enjoyed them!
very chewy, soft cookies! I used large oats instead of rolled and they still taste great! I didn’t find that they were mushy when they cooked, they did look mushy when I took them out but that’s the recipe. definitely a hit in my family
Thank you for the review! Glad you enjoyed them 🙂
The flavour of these cookies is wonderful, the only issue is that they spread out quite a bit so they’re very thin and because they’re a little bit underbaked they are a little bit squishy and you’re falling apart
I'm glad you liked the flavour. I'm sorry the recipe did not fully work out for you. Reasons for cookies over spreading can be that the butter was too soft or not creamed enough. They may need to have been baked a little more for you. Every oven is different and that can effect the baking time.
Addendum to my comment of yesterday ,
I found that the next day the cookies just crumbled , I couldn’t even pick it up without it breaking all apart .
Anyone else have any issues ?
I have not had the issue of the cookies falling apart myself. It could be that the cookies were a little too underbaked. A good rule of them is when the bottoms turning brown they're good. I will remake these soon to trouble check.
I just remade them today. I followed my recipe with no changes and they came out perfect. I'm sorry you're having troubles. I'm not sure the cause.
