Chocolate Chip Cookies have to be our absolute favorite type of chocolate chip cookie recipe in the whole wide world. But seriously, chocolate chip cookies and milk? I think my son could eat his nine year old weight in them he loves them so much.

Learn the secrets to the chocolate chip cookies that everyone requests! // addapinch.comLast year, we had an experiment to find the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe and found one that we both loved. I turned them into chocolate chip cookie brownies and even used them in my recipe for chocolate chip peanut butter doozies that will knock your socks off they are so delicious!

But then, just a while back my husband told me he really preferred a chewy chocolate chip cookie. So our adventure started again.

We spent afternoons in the kitchen mixing, tasting, baking, and grinning from ear to ear.

It’s a tough life testing chocolate chip cookie recipes, isn’t it?

But a mighty delicious one at that.

Who would have thought that the cookie my family loved the most as a “chocolate chip cookie” has oatmeal in it?

But from one taste of the dough, we knew this recipe was different.

If you like your cookies to be crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside with the perfect combination of sweet and a little bite of salty then this cookie recipe has your name on it, too!

Scoop your chocolate chip cookie dough onto cookie sheet and bake for about 8-10 minutes just until lightly golden brown.

Remove from the oven and watch them disappear.

  1. I’ve got coffee and no cookie to dunk — these would be perfect right this minute! They look delicious.

  2. slightly cripsy on the outside, chewy on the inside. I will teach your son how to eat his weight in cookies. I’ll bring the chocolate milk!

  3. Chocolate chip oatmeal cookies have been a favorite in our family for so many years I can’t recall when we started making them. My kids never loved nuts in their cookies, I missed that extra mouthfeel of something beyond plain dough and the chocolate chip cookie seemed to be our ‘meet in the middle’ solution.

    Probably didn’t hurt that with the ever present issue of high altitude baking that the oatmeal in the dough help saved me from having totally flat cookies!

    I haven’t had them in years and am now craving some..albeit WITH nuts. Oh how crazy rebellious is that? 🙂

  4. I love adding oatmeal to cookies. These look great!

  5. These look perfect for dunking! Happy Baking!

  6. I love the idea of hiding some healthy oats in the chocolate chip cookies. well done!

  7. The combination of the slight crunch and chewy inside can’t be beat in my book. YUM!

  8. Thanks for the tip about the sea salt!

  9. Oh, chocolate chip cookies are my absolute FAVORITE!!! These look divine!

  10. Love the combination of flavors with adding oatmeal to the mix. Looks delicious!

  18. Made these they flew out of the cookie jar!! And I have request from my kids to make more!

  19. I made these the other day with a friend. I also added some pecans (about 1/2 a cup) roughly chopped. They were great!
    I made various sizes and even wrapped some up for a friends birthday…his girlfriend said later he didn’t really eat cookies, but took one bite and then polished 2 (large) cookies off.

    Will definitely make these again 😉

  20. Awesome recipe. I cut it in half for a smaller batch & they all came out perfect. I used Belgian dark chocolate that I cut up into chunks. I also used steel cut oats instead of the quick cook oats. These cookies are deelish! Thanks for the great recipe.

  23. Could I use old fashioned oats instead of quick cooking?

  24. Always on a search for the best chocolate chip cookie recipe, and I think I’ve found it! These were so delicious!! I used half white whole wheat flour and about a 1/4 cup of dark brown sugar because I was out of light brown. Also, I only have old fashioned oats so I gave them a quick pulse in the blender. YUM! My husband texted me from work to say how delicious they are. Mine baked up puffier than yours maybe from my changes. This is definitely a keeper!

  25. can you simply remove the oats?

  31. Love these!! Please tell me your cookbook will be out soon!

  32. I made these cookies today. OMG…very yummy. I followed the recipe exactly and they are very tasty! I baked them for 10 minutes and let them sit on cookie sheet for 1 min. They were soft and baked perfect. I can’t wait to share with my kids, if there are any left.

  33. Making these right now and the first batch just came out of the oven. They don’t look like the pics, didn’t really spread out, but they are super yummy!

  34. Mines dd not look at all like the pictures and they rised like domes!
