Cost: 10


  • 1 cup (226g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup (200g) packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 ¾ cups (217g) all-purpose flour
  • 3 ¼ cups (289g) quick cooking oats
  • 1 ½ cups (255g) chocolate chips


  • In a medium bowl, whisk cinnamon, salt, baking soda, and flour. Set aside.
  • Cream butter and both sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. (You can also use a large bowl and a hand mixer.) Cream until smooth, about 1-2 minutes. Mix in eggs and vanilla, beat until smooth.
  • Gradually mix in dry ingredients until smooth, being careful not to over mix. Add oats and mix, then stir chocolate chips.
  • Scoop 2 tablespoon sized balls of dough and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour.
  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350°F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silpat baking mat and place the cookie dough balls 2” apart.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the bottom is slightly golden. Cool on cookie sheets for 10 minutes, then remove to a rack to cool completely.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 4 days. They can also be frozen in an airtight container or ziploc bag for up to 2 months.


  • Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 4 days - they'll stay soft!
  • You can freeze oatmeal cookies for up to 3 months.
  • Turn these into oatmeal raisin cookies by swapping raisins for the chocolate chips. You can also add nuts!
  • I don't recommend using old fashioned oats for this recipe - they'll soak up too much of the moisture and make a dry cookie. Make your own quick oats by pulsing the old fashioned oats in a blender then measure as directed.
