Dry Mix:

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


  • 1 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 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.
