The title says it all!! I can never resist these bits of heavenly bliss! They are best made with a standing Kitchen Aid mixer (other brands are just fine too!). The recipe says to chill for an hour, but I usually chill the dough overnight & I think they taste even better. This recipe is great for if you are making cookies for an event & want to split up the time by making the batter at night & baking them the next day. Please enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. Miss together flour, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  2. 2. In a separate bowl (the kitchen aid mixing bowl, if you have the mixer), beat together butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy.
  3. 3. Beat in egg and vanilla to sugar mix until blended.
  4. 4. At low speed, beat in flour mixture until blended. I usually add 1/2, mix, and then add the other 1/2.
  5. 5. Fold in oats and chocolate chips. Then cover and chill for at least 1 hours.
  6. 6. Preheat oven to 350 F & grease baking sheets.
  7. 7. Shape dough into 1-in balls, 2 inches apart. Flatten cookies lightly.
  8. 8. Bake until lightly browned around edges, about 10-12 minutes.
  9. 9. Cool & watch them disappear!

Hmm... not sure why mine turned out a little different. Everything went well making the dough. I even found it pliable enough to add one cup of craisins in addition to the chocolate. But when baking they spread out a lot and became thin. I think I could easily cut the butter back to 3/4 cup.

I made these for the 3rd time this week last night (it's only Thursday!) and my family and I cannot get enough of them. We were even 1/2 cup short of oats, so I subbed in 2 instant packets of maple brown sugar oatmeal and it was still great! I definitely recommend keeping the recipe as is, but I really don't see how someone couldn't love these! Next time I'm going to try some dark chocolate chips and nuts... YUM!

These were OK. I thought the cinnamon was over-powering and, perhaps a little too heavy on the oats. I won't make them again.
