Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

Are you craving a sweet treat for yourself or your family / friends / colleagues?  Look no further than this oatmeal cookie recipe!

This recipe is one of my all-time favourites and will satisfy your sweet tooth like no other. I baked these for my co-workers at Le Physique and they seemed to really enjoy them and asked that I share the recipe with everyone. These cookies are great for any occasion, whether it be a picnic with friends, for a potluck, or just as a snack for home! Overall, it takes just under 1 hour to prepare and bake. 

glass jar with uncooked oats


  • 1 cup of softened butter
  • 1 cup of light brown sugar
  • ½ cup of white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1&¼ cups of all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 3 cups of quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (165 degrees Celsius)
  2. Cream together the softened butter, brown sugar, and white sugar in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time and stir in vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir it into the large bowl until just blended (be sure not to overmix it!)
  4. Mix in the quick oats and chocolate chips and stir until just combined.
  5. Scoop about a spoonful of cookie dough onto baking sheets (leave about 1 inch between each scoop). You don’t need to flatten the cookie dough too much, they’ll naturally flatten as they bake.
  6. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a rack to cool completely.


You can easily substitute some of the ingredients for other things you like! I personally like dark chocolate a lot more than milk chocolate chips, and the recipe isn’t affected at all. However, if you’re looking for other ingredient substitutions (such as butter, eggs, flour, etc), here’s a great website to get the substitutions and their exact conversions from the original ingredients: https://www.foodandwine.com/cooking-techniques/baking/baking-substitute-cheat-sheet
