Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies!

I came home from work last week and decided I felt like baking... I wanted something sweet and I also wanted to bring some baking to work for my coworkers. I remembered one of my co-workers asking me for an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe, so I figured I would test out one of the recipes I had and see if it was worthy of sharing with others. Boy was it ever!! The recipe came from The Best Bake Sale Ever and is definitely one I'll make again. It was so easy to mix together and the ingredients were simple and down to earth.

The recipe has been slightly adapted by me and the adapted version is as follows:


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)

  • 3/4 cup butter, at room temperature

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1/3 cup milk

  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats

  • 1 1/4 cup semi-sween chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Grease two cookie sheets.

  2. Combine flour, baking soda and cinnamon (if using) in medium bowl.

  3. In large blwl, beat butter and sugar until creamy (approx 2-4 minutes). Mix in egg, milk & vanilla. Blend in flour mixture. Stir in oats and chocolate chips with wooden spoon to form stiff dough.

  4. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheets.

  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until cookies are firm to the touch and golden brown around the edges. Cool cookies for 2 minutes on tray, then remove to wire rack to cool completely.

Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did! Here is a picture of the finished product:
