Ultimate Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Do you remember my favorite no-bake cookie recipe?

Well, for years I’ve had that recipe written on a piece of scrap paper. That paper is covered in food splotches and stains, and you know that recipe is amazing.

Guess what I found on the back of that paper.

This ultimate chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe.

Oh yes. It’s a thing of beauty.

I honestly had forgotten that I had this recipe until my daughter pointed out the words on the back of the paper. It had been folded up and crumbled a bit, but the recipe was still readable.

And I’m so glad I have it.

Seriously – I know I have a million different cookie recipes. But this is the best oatmeal chocolate chip one. Hands down. For sure.

  • 113 Grams Butter, Softened (1 Stick – 8 Tablespoons)
  • 100 Grams Brown Sugar (1/2 Cup)
  • 100 Grams White Granulated Sugar (1/2 Cup)
  • 2 Grams Baking Soda (1/2 Teaspoon)
  • 2 Grams Baking Powder (1/2 Teaspoon)
  • 120 Grams All-Purpose Flour (1 Cup)
  • 100 Grams Quick Oats (1 1/4 Cup)
  • 170 Grams Milk Chocolate Chips (1 Cup)
  • 1 Large Egg


  • Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit (176° Celsius).
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the butter, sugars, and egg.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine baking powder, baking soda, flour, and oats.
  • Combine the wet ingredients with the dry and stir until just incorporated.
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Chill dough for 1 to 2 hours to minimize spreading.
  • Use a cookie scoop (1 1/2 Tablespoon-sized) to drop bits of dough onto a lightly greased baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the edges have slightly browned. Let cookies finish baking on the pan before serving.


It’s easy to overbake these cookies. They won’t look done in the middle when you first pull them out, but let them finish baking on the pan and they’ll be perfect.
