Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate, Cookies, Quick and Easy

One of the biggest let downs in life might be the moment when you grab an oatmeal cookie–thinking it’s chocolate chip–to only realize it’s actually an oatmeal RAISIN cookie.

I don’t hate raisins. I used to tho because I remember my mom would put those tiny boxes of California raisins in my lunchbox and every time I opened up my lunchbox and would see it, I would let out a dramatic and admittedly-bratty UGHHHH.

So, yeah, I don’t adore raisins. I won’t go out of my way to eat them and oatmeal cookies taste a million times better with dark chocolate chunks than raisins. Sorry, raisins.

I do like wine…so I guess it all worked out. Lol.

Last week I tried my first hand at oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and phew, it did not go so well. If you swipe right on the photo, you’ll see the horrific after photo.

It took Billy and I a few times to get it right. We essentially wanted the Cozy Chocolate Chip Cookie but in oatmeal cookie form. It took some tweaking but we finally nailed it.

These cookies are soft and delicious. They have a tremendous amount of texture and the dark chocolate chunks make them very very tasty.

A plus, they are ridiculously easy to throw together. Make ‘em this weekend!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

5 from 1 vote
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Serving Size: 24


Dry Mix:

  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, melted butter
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 6 ounces dark chocolate chocolate chunks or chips, chopped (I chopped mine because they were sort of big)
  • Flaky Sea Salt, such as Maldon or Jacobson, as garnish


To Make the Dry Mix:

  • In a medium bowl, mix together the oats, flour, baking soda and salt.

To Make the Wet Mix:

  • In medium bowl, mix together the melted butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. Pour the butter/sugar mixture into the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Lastly, fold in chocolate chips. Stick in fridge for 1 hour to chill.
  • Preheat oven to 350F. Scoop out 1 1/2-inch balls of dough and roll them between your palms; place them onto a parchment-lined baking sheet spacing them 3 inches apart. Bake for 8 to 10 min, until they barely turn golden brown around the edges. Sprinkle with a few pinches of salt. Repeat with the remaining cookie dough. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes and then transfer them to a cooling rack. These are best eaten warm with milk.

    Dear Adrianna,
    My one tip on baking with raisins is only use golden raisins. They are wonderful and do not get a burned quality to them Oatmeal golden raisin cookies are awesome.

    I love reading your blog.

    “One of the biggest let downs in life might be the moment when you grab an oatmeal cookie–thinking it’s chocolate chip–to only realize it’s actually an oatmeal RAISIN cookie.” YES. I say this all the time and my husband tries to tell me that oatmeal raisin is far more common that oatmeal chocolate chip. But do we really want to be common? I think not. Oatmeal chocolate chip 4 lyfe.
