Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I was in the mood to bake, but didn’t want to potchki. So, I found a recipe for chewy chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and decided to give it a whirl. So easy. So good. I omitted the nuts and instead added extra chocolate chips. They are perfect–crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside, and have a wonderful texture.


1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups quick-cooking oats
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in the quick oats, walnuts, and chocolate chips. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes about 3 1/2 dozen.

    I made oatmeal raisin choc. chip cookies today that are low glycemic and really healthy. I used all whole wheat flour, not enriched. I used Splenda instead of white sugar (cup for cup) and substituted 1 cup of brown sugar with one half cup of splenda brown sugar blend. I added a third egg and approx 1/8-1/4 cup non fat milk to the batter. (whole wheat flour makes things really dry). I then added 1 cup raisins and 1 cup choc. chips, of course, I used the 60% cocoa dark choc. chips. They were absolutely delicious. the whole wheat flour raised the fiber content, the white sugar was zero and the brown sugar was 1/4 of the original calories. Next time I will try it with the prune fat substitute. However, for a food to be low glycemic, fat is necessary. It made 60 cookies with my 2 tsp cookie scooper I got from Hilary!!! This should be healthy for everyone, and also for diabetics!!!

    HI — First time I’ve ever submitted a comment on a website! These cookies are amazing. Here’s my modifications: used Earth Balance margarine, no salt, no nuts and I ground up 2 of the 3 cups of oatmeal to make oatmeal flour. I did use quick oats (3 minute as opposed to 1 minute kind — my neighbor insists the 3 minute kind is better for ground oatmeal). The first batch I baked for less than the 15 mintues and they are chewier but kind of crumbly. Not that I’m complaining! The second batch I baked for the full15 minutes and they were browned throughout and pretty crunchy. Both were fabulous. Thanks for the recipe!

    I made these cookies.. followed the recipe perfectly (except the walnuts and more chips!) and could only cook them for 10 minutes because they were burning. Maybe My ovens weird and I can’t put two sheets in at a time because, I made another dozen by itself for 9 minutes instead and they came out deliciously soft. Absolutely perfect. I don’t know what happened the first time.. the cookies are still not bad, just a little burnt on the bottom. Maybe next time I make them they won’t be. Good recipe anyhow. 🙂
