These cookies are a request of a blog reader and friend, Rebecca. I’m always looking for ideas for recipes and things to make. I will try anything! I love oatmeal cookies and chocolate chip cookies. The combination of both together is fantastic. Then again, I’m pretty sure anything combined with chocolate is fantastic!
I found a ton of recipes for Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies. I might try a few of the other varieties sometime. A common recipe I found had vanilla pudding. Which I didn’t have on hand, so I couldn’t try that one. But it peaked my curiosity, so I might just have to try it soon. In the meantime, here’s the recipe I used for these delicious little bits of sweetness.
1 cup butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups quick cooking oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 325º F.
2. In a large bowl, mix the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together until smooth. Beat the eggs, then the vanilla.
3. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in the quick oats and chocolate chips. Drop by heaping spoonfuls on to baking sheets covered with parchment paper.
4. Bake for 12-15 minutes in the oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
I’d like to welcome all of my new followers from the “Grow Your Blog” party yesterday! That was such a neat experience. I’m looking forward to getting to know each of you through your blogs and hope you enjoy visiting my blog as well.
Our 2 favorite cookies in this house are peanut butter cookies and chocolate chip cookies. When I saw the recipe for these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies on Pinterest, I was sold. I had to try them. They did not disappoint.
1/2 cup butter, softened at room temp
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 3/4 cup flour
1 cup chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 375 (F). Mix the butter, peanut butter and sugar in a bowl. (Using a Kitchen Aid mixer works very nicely.)
2. Once it is mixed into a creamy texture, add the egg, milk and vanilla. Mix well.
3. Add the flour, baking soda and salt and mix until well blended. Stir in the cup of chocolate chips.
4. Put tablespoon size drops of cookie dough on to a cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
5. Cool on wire rack. Eat and enjoy! Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

Everyone has a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. And they’re all most likely based on the Toll House Cookie recipe. Mine is very similar to the Toll House Cookie recipe. With a few tweaks. I add an extra 1/4 cup of flour to fluff them up. And I use Aldi brand chocolate chips. They’re much cheaper! And just as good. I also cool the cookie dough in the fridge for a bit before I bake the cookies. I find it keeps the cookies from going flat. I prefer puffier cookies to flat ones. But that’s just me.
Here’s my recipe:
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) Bakers Corner Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar in an electric mixer until creamy. Then add vanilla extract and eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually mix in flour, baking soda and salt until well mixed. Stir in chocolate morsels. Cool dough in refrigerator for 15-30 minutes. Then drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake at 375 degrees for 9-11 minutes. Cool and enjoy!
