Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies


Crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside. These Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies deliver great taste and the perfect texture in every bite with this tried and true family recipe.


1 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup white sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

1-1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

3 cups oatmeal

2 cup chocolate chunks


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
  2. With a hand mixer or stand mixer using paddle attachment,  combine butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Mix on medium-high for 2 minutes.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix on high speed for 1 minute.
  4. Using low speed on mixer, gradually add in dry ingredients.
  5. Continuing on low speed, gradually mix in the oatmeal adding one cup at a time followed by the chocolate chunks.
  6. The dough will be slightly sticky. Using an over-filled cookie scoop (or by hand) roll approx 2 tbsp. of dough into a ball. Press down to flatten it a little and place on baking sheet.
  7. Bake  at 350°F oven for 10-14 minutes. If you want chewy cookies, take them out of the oven after 10-12 minutes. For crunchier cookies, take them out of the oven after 12 to 14 minutes.
  8. Cool on wire rack, then enjoy!


  1. This recipe is best using quick oats. If you have the large flake oats pulse them in the food processor for a minute first.
  2. Use room temperature butter. Take butter out of the refrigerator one to two hours before you start the recipe.
  3. Eggs should be at room temperature.  Take them out of the refrigerator one to two hours before you start baking.
