Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Updated photo below! They turned out WAY better when I used smaller oats and didn't mix too well! Enjoy!

These cookies taste good but I made a few mistakes so they look funny! First of all, I used large oats which is a big mistake! Also from reading the reviews online, others have agreed that a little more flour is needed. So next time I will be tweaking the recipe. Either way I made these today and most of them are eaten already, so they can't be too bad!

Oh and I halved the recipe! Here's the source.


  • 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 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional, I didn't use)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. 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.
  3. Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
