This fantastic oatmeal chocolate chip cookies recipe crosses the chewiness of oatmeal cookies with the chocolaty goodness of chocolate chip cookies. I’m telling you these cookies are the best of both worlds!
This recipe is super straightforward, uses simple ingredients from the pantry, and makes a nice big batch. They also have hint cinnamon- not as much as cinnamon cookies, but enough to compliment the chocolate chips. These oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are always a big hit wherever I serve them!
Let’s bake these!

Notes + Tips
Crispy vs Chewy: These cookies are designed to be chewy. The brown sugar, oats, eggs, and butter all bring moisture to the party.
- If you want to make a crisp, you can increase the baking time.
Butter: Please only use real butter and not margarine. Margarine doesn’t have that wonderful flavor, has more water in it, and the texture will be different.
Oats: You’ll definitely get the best results with quick oats. If you only have old-fashioned rolled oats on hand, blitz them in the food processor. It will help them cook faster and give your cookies a better texture. Check out my old fashioned Oatmeal Raisin cookies next!
Storing + Freezing + Make-Ahead
- How Long Can You Keep This In The Fridge? These cookies can be kept in the fridge for a week. I store them in a resealable 1-gallon bag.
- Can You Freeze This? This recipe freezes beautifully! You can freeze the baked cookies for up to 8 months. If you’d prefer to freeze the dough, it will freeze for up to 6 months.
- Make-Ahead Tips: You can make this dough up to 2 days ahead. Simply spoon out and bake when you’re ready for them!
