Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until creamy and smooth.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  5. Fold in the rolled oats and chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  6. Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop rounded balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving space for spreading.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. The centers may look slightly underdone, but they will continue to firm up as they cool.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Serve and enjoy these delicious chewy chocolate chip oatmeal cookies!
