Prep Time 15 mins

Total Time 25 mins
Servings 36 cookies


  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar dark or light, though this is a great one for dark
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon if you like a lot of cinnamon, you can go to 1 tsp
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 cups quick cook oats
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips dark chocolate chips or chunks are great as well


  • In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy, at least 2-3 minutes, using a stand mixer or electric mixer.
  • Beat in eggs and vanilla. Mix until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and oats. Stir until well mixed.
  • Combine the dry mixture, with the wet mixture, and stir until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips or chunks. *Cover tightly and chill for at least one hour.
  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Using a large cookie scoop, drop scoopfuls of dough onto baking sheet, at least 2" apart. Optional - if desired, sprinkle sea salt on top of cookies.
  • Bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until cookies start to brown around edges. Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool on sheets, placed on wire cooling racks, for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!


*Note - if you have time to chill your dough after making, prior to baking, for at least an hour, that's great. If not your cookies will still be great, but chilling the dough up to 24 hours before baking is always a great option, just store tightly covered in the fridge after it's all mixed, up!
