Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
I love Oatmeal Cookies so much! I have many recipes here on my site, but I realized I had never posted a classic Oatmeal Chocolate Chip! My Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are famous in my family, because they are simply the BEST and I thought that chocolate needed a time to shine too!
How Do You Make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
- This is an easy cookie recipe that requires no chill time!
- And of course they are adaptable as well…meaning you can use any flavor chip you like, for example white chips, butterscotch, or a combo! And certainly you could use raisins in place of the chocolate chips as well!
- I use Quick Oats in this oatmeal cookie recipe. I love the quick oats because it makes the texture more uniform. You can absolutely use rolled (old fashioned) oats if you prefer, they will just have a slightly different texture.
- I love using coarse sea salt in my cookie recipes, and this is no exception. The salty little bits just add an extra something that sets them apart!
Can You Freeze Oatmeal Cookies?
Yes, absolutely! You can freeze the baked cookies OR freeze the dough before you bake them.
- To freeze baked cookies, store them in an airtight container, or zip-top bag for up to a month! Let them thaw at room temperature and enjoy!
- OR to get that fresh baked taste back, after they are thawed, pop them into a 350°F oven for 2-3 minutes and enjoy warm cookies!
- To freeze the unbaked dough, portion out the dough in scoops and place them on a baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for an hour or so, or until they are frozen. Transfer the cookie dough scoops into a zip-top bag and place in the fridge!
- To bake frozen dough, you don’t have to thaw it, just bake the dough frozen and add a few minutes to the bake time!
