Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

So recently I have fallen in love with a new food/drink. I grew up drinking milk with most meals. It was basically required by my dad. Just before high school I stopped drinking it for the most part and kind of lost a taste for it.

Well, a couple months ago I got a chance to go on a trip to Nashville with KitchenAid and some other bloggers and try out a few of their new appliances. I tried out their new Pro Line Series blender (which is seriously amazing, by the way) and made almond milk with it. We added some cocoa to make it chocolatey and added a little Irish Cream. Needless to say, it was delicious and since then my love for almond milk has slowly been growing.

Now I totally love it. I drink it all the time (thought without the Irish Cream 😉 ) and have to make myself not drink it all day long. It’s kind of crazy and makes me even feel like I’m being healthy. 🙂 Perhaps my healthy milk-drinking habits will balance out all the cookie eating I did while perfecting these babies.

Oatmeal chocolate chips cookies are one of those cookies that I tried to resist for a long time. I’ve always loved oatmeal raisin cookies and chocolate chip cookies, but combining them just seemed wrong. Oatmeal without raisins? Why would you do such a thing? Finally I gave in and grew to love them. 🙂 Now I’ve got my favorite version of the new classic to share with you.

I seriously lost track of how many times I made these cookies. I wanted them just soft and chewy enough, just thick enough and plenty oatmeal-y and chocolatey. It was a tough balance to strike but I totally love the final result. They’re thick enough, without being too thick. Chewy and so soft. And seriously full of chocolate chips.

I had quite a few taste testers with all the versions I tested and these were definitely the favorite. I’ve been asked to make them over and over already, so I know you’re going to love them!

    The Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies looked delicious! i baked them this morning! They taste delicious! The dough is so very dry. i had to pack the dough together to make a ball to place on the baking sheet. Several of the first batch fell apart while baking. (i understand that when a cookie breaks – that permits the calories to leak out, so i was good with that.) i reread the measurements to make certain that i didn’t make a mistake. i put cooking spray on an 8″x8″ baking dish and pressed the remaining dough into the dish & baked it for about 20 minutes. It looks yummy! i also covered the baking dish with aluminum foil to ‘trap’ any moisture from evaporating while cooling. Any suggestions? Thanks

    My niece can’t have chocolate but loves oatmeal cookies.  Do I have to alter the recipe at all if I omit the chocolate chips?  I LOVE all your recipes by the way! You are my go to for cupcakes, poke cakes and whenever I’m poking around for something new to bake.  Thank you! ❤️❤️❤️

      I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed the recipes! It should be fine to just leave out the chocolate chips without making other adjustments.

    These were sooo delicious!! I always have trouble with my chocolate chip cookies not flattening out and these were finally the exception. So perfect and so yummy!!

    I definitely love your blog! I’m not good at cookies, but I tried to bake these today (except with dried blueberries, but I know your blog is the best so I wanted to try one of your recipe), and I finally have good cookies! Even great cookies I think, but they are still too hot to taste again!
    Again, thank you for your great blog, and I’m looking forward to your book!

      Man these are so good!!!!
      My toddlers and I LOVE them. I used chocolate buttons instead of chocolate chips and they’re so good.

    I love almond milk. I just made popsicles with the chocolate kind and some peanut butter and they turned out SO well.
    I love oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, because then you still get the chocolate and oatmeal without the evil raisins. These look great!
