Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies.
Let’s talk about raisins.
I know. Gross. I can barely even think of a raisin without cringing.
I’m just not into them. I can’t chew something that is labeled plump and shriveled at the same time. I like the words plump and shriveled to pertain to warm, cuddly and loving grandmas who knit blankets and scarves and drink hot cocoa. Not my food.
Sometimes I accidentally eat a raisin when I shovel handfuls of salty trail mix into my mouth. Other times I accidentally eat a raisin when I’m picking every single chocolate chip out of a bag of trail mix. Occasionally I bite into a warm, gooey cookie expecting to find a melted chocolate chip ribbon, only to discover… a raisin. Then I cry. Ew.
Sometimes I can snack on one or two raisins, but I’m really just… judging them.
Luckily… these cookies have nothing to do with raisins. Lovely, right?
Instead of raisins, I stuffed thick oatmeal cookies with a boatload of chocolate chips. Large and in charge cookies. I underbaked them slightly, resulting in a super chewy and gooey cookie with the perfect chocolate ribbons I crave. Then I ate them. Almost all of them. They complete me.
Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
- 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cups rolled oats
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips
- optional: 1- 2 tablespoons milk if dough is crumbly
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Beat butter and sugars with an electric mixer until smooth. Add egg and vanilla, mixing well until combined, about 2 minutes. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon with the mixer on medium speed. Beat in oats. Mix until dough comes together. Add in 1 tablespoon milk if the dough is crumbly. If dough is still crumbly, add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until it comes together. Fold in chocolate chips. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Remove dough from fridge and roll into big 1 1/2 inch balls. Set on a baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Lightly press down on dough to flatten it. Bake at 375 for 9-11 minutes.

These are amazing!!! Can’t believe I found this randomly on a Google search! I’m making a special batch for my hubby to take to work tomorrow and a batch for my grandmother for Valentines Day!! :). I just pinned this link to share on Pinterest and people are repinning it left and right! :) good stuff! Thanks so much for sharing!
the only thing I can think of I used unsalted butter, instead of butter as recipe called for. My baking soda has not expired according to the box. My eggs were at room temperature
this recipe called for baking powder, not baking soda. They aren’t interchangeable so if you used soda instead of powder, that was probably why the cookies didn’t come out.

Just found this recipe on Pinterest, and my kitchen smells like a Cinnabon factory. I cannot wait to eat these cookies!! Thanks for the recipe!
This looks like the kind of recipe I’ve been looking for. NOT flat, but full and crispy edged chewy! I’m saving this one now! Thank you! :)

These were delicious and fun to bake. I loved how they were crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside! This recipe actually came out to be 2 dozen cookies for me, but the more the better!
My friend and I made cookies yesterday followed by your recipe!!!! They turned out great!!!! CHEWY! and DELICIOUS!!!!We were so happy!!! We almost finished all by a day haha!:D
Thank you so much for the recipe, we will definitely do it again! And our next goal is to make the banana chocholate chips cookies!They sound great!
is all purpose flour plain flour or self raising flour? i live in england and they don’t sell all purpose flour…
Just made these cookies. My electric mixer is busted so I mixed by hand and used milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet. These cookies are AMAZING! The cinnamon adds a nice flavour. Made Two dozen cookies beautifully.
Love this recipe. Thanks! :)

Finally, an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie that doesn’t come out flat! I used half semi-sweet and have milk chocolate chips and they were sooo good. I really love how much cinnamon is in the recipe. It gives them a really unique taste. Thank you for the recipe!
AMAZING !!! Eating one right now ! I’m a nursing mother so threw in two tablespoons of brewers yeast and it didn’t mess with the wonderfulness at all.
Great. Now whenever I eat raisins, I think I might be eating old people.
But anyway, wonderful recipe. :)

Try these with walnut and butterscotch chips or with dark chocolate pomegranate candies. The last one is the best with these! I made mine extra big-who needs to grab two cookies when you can just grab one! Guilt free with eating half the amount of cookies as before!
These were great cookies. I especially liked the dough! My kids didn’t like the cinnamon but the adults did. No to raisens; yes to chocolate chips!

great recipe but would recommend adding more oats if you enjoy that texture like I do. :)
These cookies are so perfect, I can’t even stand it. I made them yesterday, and regretted every chocolate chip cookie I’ve eaten that DIDN’T have cinnamon in it. (Ok, not really.) So good. I was nervous to see if they would stand the overnight test, but they are still chewy and amazing today. Awesome!
yum yum yum and yes i am another one of those people who cry when they find a raisin they didnt intend to consume. when searching for a new chocolate chip oatmeal cookie i came across your recipe and once i saw that you not only used cinnamon but a hefty amount i know i had to try them! thank you :)
I want to freeze the dough. is that ok and how should it be in lump form or in balls…
I want to freeze the dough, how is the best way.
My dough came out wet and sticky not dry
I came across this recipe before, and did not try it. But today, I’m going to make them for my fiance. I like the recipe because, you don’t have to use 2 sticks of butter..which is alot. I HATE RAISINS! YUCK! UGH! LOL! I will come back and let you know how they turned out.
So far, I have made your Giant M&M Cookies (one time with M&Ms, one time with chopped up Reece’s PB cups in place of M&Ms) and Better-Than-Crack Brownies, and they were both a HUGE hit…I have the dough for these all made, just letting it sit in the fridge right now. If the taste of the dough is any indication, these are going to be just as tasty. Because of your blog, I can’t stop baking! (that’s my excuse, but really, I just enjoy baking and eating what I bake). Thanks for all the awesome recipes! :)

Of all things I didn’t have instant oats! Will just the regular rolled oats work?
Awesome cookies :)! I suck at baking and they actually look and taste great.
I made these cookies with semi-sweet chocolate chips (which I always use in my chocolate chip cookies). My daughters and I thought the cookies were not sweet enough. I should have used milk chocolate chips.
I am personally not an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie lover and I made a batch of these for a friend’s birthday..and I thought they were AMAZING!! I may have use some extra chocolate chips..but this is definitely a recipe I will keep and use often. :)
I loved these cookies. My sister wasn’t a fan of the cinnamon, but I loved it! Thanks for the awesome recipe. :)
I omitted the cinnamon (added a few more chocolate chips :-D ) To me, they were absolutely perfect! Thank you for the perfect recipe!
These are my new go-to oatmeal cookies. They are wonderfully chewy and delicious and look exactly like the ones in your pictures!!! I LOVE it when that happens!
Ah! Thank you, Ive been searching for a good raisin free recipe. I have two ingredients I hate baking with. Walnuts(hate the fact most brownies have them), and RAISINS.. <3
I’m going to make these yum!
Pingback: Oatmeal Chocolate Chips (with a hint of cinnamon!) « youngandfreshlife
About to make these, was wondering if the cookie sheet needs to be greased or anything before baking.
Okay so scrap y previous comments, just made them and they are delish!!!! Thanks :)
Delicious!!!!!! love, love, love this recipe. Thank you!!!!! :) The best oatmeal cookies ever!!!
I made the cookies today!!! awesome recipe.
I want to make these right now they sound delish, how many does it make?!?!!!?
Sorry just saw the quantity.
I can totally identify with your disdain of raisins. The absolute worst is when you accidentally buy a cookie or a scone or something thinking it is full of chocolate deliciousness, and after the first bite realize you’re eating fruit. Fruit!
I just taste-tested my first batch of these babies, and I have to say I either added too much sugar, not enough sugar, or too much cinnamon. I think next time I’ll cut down on the cinnamon or replace it with a bit of nutmeg.
I added about 1/2 cup more oats, as I like to pretend that when I’m eating these cookies for breakfast I’m really eating oatmeal.
Not to be mean but I loved the cinnamon amount. I can totally talk about how much I hate raisins, but I think you already said enough. I will try to add more oats next time so that I can also get away with sugar for breakfast.

Hello! Will quick oats work with this recipe?
Yup. I used quick oats and the cookies turned out the same as in the pic, but gooier because I took them out before the bottoms browned.
