Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies...

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

I love chocolate chip cookies AND I love oatmeal cookies.

A few weeks ago I tasted a cookie that combines BOTH these flavors 
into ONE delicious cookie and I was in heaven.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies...


  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 cups old fashioned oatmeal
  • 2 cups sweetened coconut flakes


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.  Set aside.
In a second bowl, beat the butter on medium speed until smooth.
Add the sugar and brown sugar and beat for another two minutes.
Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Mix in the vanilla.
Stir in the flour mixture, blending until just combined.
Add the chocolate chips, oatmeal and coconut stirring until fully incorporated.
Drop by rounded tablespoon onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper; making sure to allow plenty of room between the cookies.  
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the edges are set and golden brown. 

I used two different sized scoops...

Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for a few minutes before placing on a cooling rack...

Enjoy with a cup of cold milk...

This recipe makes a lot of cookies.  Too much for my family to really enjoy at one time.  So I decided to freeze half the recipe to enjoy at a later date...

Scoop the cookie dough out and place on a baking tray.  Place the baking tray in the freezer until the scoops are frozen...

Place the frozen scoops of cookie dough in a freezer bag.  The next time you're in the mood for cookies, just reach into the freezer and pull a few or the whole bag out and bake...

So, what's YOUR favorite cookie?

Thank you Jani for a GREAT recipe!


  1. I'm always game for a new cookie recipe, especially when it involves chocolate! :)

  2. My favorite is macadamia nut with snickerdoodles a close second! These look good. The oatmeal would make them healthier! :) I like your cartoon, my skinny woman has given up trying to get out...LOL!

  3. Chocolate and raisins together is ALWAYS a good combo in my book. YUM!

  4. I love this combo a lot, it is really addictive cookies.

  5. Oh yummy, one of my favorites! Great post Lois!

  6. Those look great! I like alot of cookies...lemon cookies, peanut butter cookies (probably my very favorite) and those no-cook oatmeal cookies. Great recipe you posted today! Thanks for sharing!

    Have a great day, Lois!

  7. I made oatmeal choc chip cookies a couple of weeks ago. I can testify they are GOOD!! I think my favorite is reg old choc chip...esp warm and soft from the oven...divine!!

  8. Hi Lois,

    I love chocolate and oatmeal too. These sound divine! I tried freezing cookie dough like this and loved it. It comes in so handy in a pinch. As far as my favorite, I can't decide I love them all! I just made a whole wheat chocolate chip cookie and posted the recipe on my blog. I'm your latest follower and will look for you on pinterest and Facebook too. I would love it if you would do the same for me. :)
