If you have followed Modern Honey for awhile, you know how much I love bakery-style cookies. The first cookie recipe I ever posted back in December 2015 was my famous Levain Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe and it has been a hit ever since!

I wanted to create a Bakery Style Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe featuring rolled oats which makes it the perfect hearty chocolate chip oatmeal cookie. These are the perfect chocolate chip cookies with oats!

Why you will love these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies:

  1. They are the perfect cookie with crisp edges and chewy centers and ooey gooey chocolate.
  2. The recipe calls for a mix of both semi-sweet chocolate chips and milk chocolate chips to make everyone happy…but use your favorite!
  3. These cookies are thick, bakery-style cookies yet chewy and not cakey.

Ingredients:

What ingredients you need to make the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies…

  • Butter — I suggest using cold butter, cut into small cubes. This helps the cookies keep their shape in the oven.
  • Brown Sugar and Sugar — this recipe calls for a higher ratio of brown sugar to sugar which helps to create the chewiest cookies.
  • Eggs — always use large eggs in cookie recipes.
  • Vanilla Extract — I suggest using a high-quality pure vanilla extract, if possible.
  • Flour — this recipe calls for all-purpose flour. If you want more tender cookies, you can use half cake flour and half all-purpose flour.
  • Rolled Oats — I suggest using old-fashioned rolled oats in this oatmeal cookie recipe.
  • Cornstarch — this helps to keep the cookies soft and thick, yet chewy.
  • Baking Soda and Salt — helps the cookies to rise and the salt gives flavor.
  • Chocolate Chips — may use semi-sweet chocolate chips or a mix of semi-sweet and milk chocolate.

What Oats should I use in Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies?

For hearty cookies, I suggest using old-fashioned rolled oats in this recipe. The quick oats soak up the ingredients and may make the cookies drier.

How to make Bakery Style Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies:

Here are some tips for making Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies…

  1. Start by creaming together the cubed butter, brown sugar, and sugar in a mixer or with a hand mixer for 4 minutes, until light and creamy. Scrape the sides of the bowl to ensure even mixing.
  2. Add in eggs, one at a time, and then vanilla, and mix until creamy.
  3. Fold in flour, rolled oats, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt and mix just until combined. Do not overmix or it will create too much gluten in the cookies.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips. Roll into 4-ounce, 5-ounce, or 6-ounce balls.
  5. Place on a light colored baking sheet. Bake just until the edges start to turn a light golden color and the centers are slightly underdone.
  6. Optional: as soon as you remove the cookies from the oven, lightly press extra chocolate chips on top of the cookies to make them look more gourmet.

Don’t overbake your cookies!

Since these are soft and chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, you want to watch them carefully to make sure you don’t overbake the cookies. Remember…cookies will continue to set up after you remove them from the oven.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I add raisins instead of chocolate chips?

Absolutely! You can add 1 1/2 cups of raisins instead of chocolate chips to the cookie dough to make oatmeal raisin cookies.

Can I add nuts to this oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe?

Yes! You can add 1 1/2 cups of walnuts or pecans to the cookie dough.

Do I have to chill the cookie dough?

No! You can bake these cookies right away. I do believe that cookie dough does get better when it is chilled so if you have time, I suggest chilling for 24-28 hours. Just make sure the cookie dough in completely wrapped and covered so it doesn’t dry out.

How to store Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies:

I suggest storing the cookies in an air-tight container at room temperature. These cookies are best served the same day but because they are made with oatmeal and cornstarch, which helps to keep them soft, they will stay fresh for up to two days.

If you would like the cookies to stay fresh for longer, I suggest freezing the cookies. More details below…

Can you freeze Bakery Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies?

Absolutely! These cookies freeze beautifully. I suggest placing the cookies in gallon size freezer safe Zipolc bags. To make them more sturdy, you can place on a thick paper plate and then put them in a freezer safe bag.

The cookies can stay in the freezer for up to several months. When ready to eat, just let them come to room temperature.
