The thought of adding chocolate chips to my oatmeal cookies never crossed my mind until my friend requested them as a dessert for Christmas. To me oatmeal cookies should have walnuts, raisins etc. But chocolate chips? I obliged and took my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe and threw in chocolate chips and finished them off with a quick vanilla icing. I was amazed by the results. The addition of the chocolate chips produced a chewy oatmeal cookie loaded with gooey melted chocolate chips. He must have known something I didn’t.

I can now say that these are one of the best oatmeal cookies I have ever had.

Soft, chewy and slightly under baked. These cookies are loaded with quick cooking oats and chocolate chips. The oats give them a nutty, chewy texture.

This recipe makes a total of about 18-24 cookies depending on how large or small you make them.

I added some vanilla extract and cinnamon to the batter for some extra flavor. Add some raisins of nuts if you like them in your oatmeal cookies.

These Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are super simple to make. Start by creaming your butter and brown sugar. Add in 1 whole egg and vanilla. Fold in your dry ingredients followed by the oats and chocolate chips. Roll into large tablespoons.

No chilling or resting time required!

I use brown sugar in this recipe instead of white table sugar. I prefer the taste of brown sugar in a cookie not to mention the extra chewiness and moisture it gives the cookies.

Some prefer to use old fashioned oats versus the quick cooking oats. I typically have quick cooking oats on hand so that is what I use. The old fashioned oats will provide a chewier texture.

These cookies will take less than 20 minutes start to finish including baking time.

What’s a good Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie without a bit of vanilla icing. To make the simple vanilla icing, whisk powdered sugar and milk together and stir in vanilla extract. That’s it!

Quick and easy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. Thick and chewy loaded with semi-sweet chocolate chips and oats. Topped with a vanilla icing.


Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 cup quick cooking oats
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Simple Vanilla Icing

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment add butter and sugar and cream until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  • Add in egg and vanilla and mix until combined, another 1-2 minutes.
  • Combine flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl.
  • Add the dry ingredient to the mixer in two parts.
  • By hand fold in the oats and chocolate chips.
  • Scoop about 1 tablespoon of batter and roll into a ball with slightly wet hands.(You should get about 18-24 cookies depending on how large or small you make the cookies)
  • Place cookies on a baking sheet with a silicon mat to prevent sticking. You do not need to grease this.
  • Place in the oven and cook for 8-10 minutes until the edges are firm. The center may still look under baked but that is ok. It makes them extra soft and chewy.
  • Remove from the oven and let set for 3-4 minutes.
  • Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Drizzle Vanilla Icing onto each cookie. (I just used a spoon for this)

Simple Vanilla Icing

  • Add powdered sugar and milk to a stand mixer with the whisk attachment. Whisk until combined 1-2 minutes.
  • Stir in vanilla extract.
  • If icing seems too thin add a bit more powdered sugar. If it is too thick add more milk.
