WHAT YOU’LL NEED FOR THIS RECIPE
Rolled Oats: Rolled or old-fashioned oats are larger and have more “chew” than quick oats would. In a pinch you can sub those in if needed though.
Unsalted butter: If you’d like to use salted butter just reduce the salt added by 1/4 a teaspoon.
Chocolate Chips: I used semisweet chocolate chips in this cookie but you can definitely use bittersweet chocolate instead.

PRO TIPS FOR MAKING THESE OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
- Measure your flour correctly! Adding too much flour to the recipe is the most common mistake. The best, and easiest way to measure flour is by using a scale. If you don’t have one then fluff your flour with a spoon, sprinkle it into your measuring cup, and use a knife to level it off.
- Chilling the dough is optional but it created a cookie that spreads out less, concentrates the flavor and dehydrates the dough a bit as well.
- Toasted walnuts make an excellent addition to this cookie. Try adding in 1/2 to 1 cup of chopped nuts.
- Try using chocolate chunks or roughly chopped chocolate for a more rustic look with bigger pools of chocolate.
- Your cookies are done when the edges start to brown. The centers will not be raw but they aren’t fully set either.
