Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

20090107_0635 This recipe is based on this one from, but I changed so many ingredients that it made more sense to rewrite the recipe.


  • 1 cup butter
  • 3/4 cups brown sugar
  • 3/4 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 11.5 oz package chocolate chips


  1. Cream butter and sugar together
  2. Add eggs and vanilla, beat until smooth
  3. Mix in baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg
  4. Add flour
  5. Add oats
  6. Stir in chocolate chips
  7. Bake at 350F for 10 minutes

This recipe made about four dozen cookies. The dough towards the end is VERY thick, you’ll need a good wooden spoon to mix it. Emma loved stirring the dough before it got too thick. We used Ghiradelli 60% cocoa chocolate chips, which I’ve written about loving before. These are huge chocolate chips, it’s more like eating a cookie with chunks of chocolate.
