I'm finally adding chocolate!

My MIL knows one of my very favorite cookies is oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. So she gave me her recipe for the chewy, and it did not disappoint! 


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/2 cups  Rolled oats
  • 1 1/2cup chocolate chips


Pre-heat oven to 325.

Cream together the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Add the eggs one at a time, then add the vanilla extract. Mix the flour, baking soda, and salt together. Then slowly incorporate them into the sugar/butter mixture. Once the flour is just mixed add the oats and chocolate chips in.

Use a medium cookie scoop when dropping dough on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 13 minutes. Then let cookies cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet before moving to drying  rack.

Makes 42 cookies.

See ya next time,

Just Add Chocolate
