These are the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies ever!
Why am I so sure about this? Because:
- They're absolutely chewy and every bite is bursting with chocolate.
- These oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are thick. You'll never get flat cookies with this recipe.
- They have the softest inner texture you've ever tasted in an oatmeal cookie because they are slightly under cooked.
I've partnered with Star Market to tell you about their Stock Up Sale and the products they offer, three of which are Gold Medal Enriched Flour, Starbucks Pike Place Roast K-Cups, and Starbucks Double Chocolate Hot Cocoa.

How to make thick and chewy chocolate chip cookies
I'm proud of these cookies because they're ultra soft and chewy. I've never been a big fan of crispy cookies and I like oatmeal cookies to be thick and super soft. These cookies are definitely up to my standards.
To make the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies you need:
- Brown and white sugar
- Chocolate chips
If you are a novice baker, this simple oatmeal cookies recipe can be one of the firsts recipes you try! Start with creaming butter, egg and sugars together in a bowl and then add the old-fashioned rolled oats and all purpose flour. Mix well until incorporated.
Once they're incorporated, mix in chocolate chips, the more the better!
Mix the chocolate chips using a wooden spoon. At this stage, you can add nuts as well.
The key is to refrigerate the cookie dough for one hour before you start baking. This helps the cookies not to flatten too much while baking. Once the oven is heated, scoop the cookie dough onto a baking sheet and bake in the oven until the edges are slightly brown and the top is very, very soft. Let the oatmeal chocolate chip cookies cool and then serve.
I'm craving these delicious cookies with Starbucks hot cocoa or coffee just writing about them! They make a great paring for an afternoon snack.
Can I use quick oats to make chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies?
It's best to use old-fashioned rolled oats to make oatmeal cookies as they give you a much chewier texture compared to quick oats. However, for cookies like no bake peanut butter oatmeal cookies that don't require baking in the oven, I would suggest using quick oats.
Notes and tips for making chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies
- You can refrigerate the cookie dough for up to three days. Simply place the oatmeal cookie dough on the counter for thirty minutes and then bake the cookies.
- To make oatmeal chocolate chip cookies without brown sugar, use ¾ cup granulated sugar and leave out the brown sugar.
- Add ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut to the cookie dough to have oatmeal coconut chocolate chip cookies.
