These are our favorite Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. Slightly crispy on the outside, chewy, and full of chocolate chips on the inside. Yum!
Table of contents
- Butter - I use half butter and half canola oil. The reason I do this is that my mom did and I love the way the cookies come out. If you and your family prefer all-butter cookies, you can omit the canola oil and add 2 sticks of butter to this recipe.
- Old-Fashioned Oats - In my opinion, using Old-Fashioned Oats is always the better option in cookies. However, if quick one-minute oats are all that are available, they will work also. With the quick oats, the cookies will not be as chewy.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
1 - Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream together the softened butter, canola oil, and sugars. Beat until light and creamy.
2 - Add the eggs and vanilla, and mix.
3 - Next, add the flour, salt, and baking soda. Mix until thoroughly combined. Using a spatula or wooden spoon might work better at this point.
4 - Add the chocolate chips and old-fashioned oats. Mix until combined.
5 - Using a cookie scoop or teaspoons, place the cookie dough on the baking sheet. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for 10 - 12 minutes.
When the cookies are done, let them cool for about a minute on the baking sheet, then move them to a cooling rack or parchment paper to cool. Store the cookies in a covered container or Zip-loc bag.
Sure. Mix together all the cookie dough ingredients and store, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours ahead of use.
Use a piece of parchment paper on the cookie sheet, or spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray. Or, use a piece of foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
I have not tried this, but I know others have. Use the cookie scoop and place the dough on a baking sheet. Freeze. When frozen, move the dough to a container or Zip-loc bag and store it in the freezer. When ready to bake, add a few extra minutes to the cooking time.

For easy cleanup, once the cookies are baked, place all the dirty beaters and utensils in the mixing bowl. Place the bowl in the sink and fill it with warm soapy water. After a couple of minutes, those dishes that do not go in the dishwasher will clean up easily.
