Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

April 30th is National Oatmeal Cookie Day!

I am a fan of oatmeal cookies (sans raisins) but I know a lot of people do not love them. This version, that’s filled with chocolate chips, will make you change your mind if you aren’t in love with plain Jane oatmeal cookies.

This cookie is an awesome spin on an oatmeal and chocolate chip cookie that everyone will love.

ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

instructions

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, ground cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars on medium-high until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add eggs, one at a time, fully incorporating after each addition, then continue to beat on high for 1 minute and then add in vanilla.
  4. Turn mixer to low and add flour mixture, mix until combined.
  5. Add oats and chocolate chips, stir until just combined. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for at least one hour.

  9. Repeat with remaining dough. Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
