These Easy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are fantastic. Butter, flour, sugar, oatmeal, chocolate chips. Lots to love. Heavenly, warm and fresh from the oven. These cookies are a yummy after school or weekend treat!
Think melty chocolate. Buttery. Crunchy. Mmmm…these cookies are perfect picnic fare or packed in lunch boxes.
These Easy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are simple to make. Get out your wooden spoon and mixing bowl.
Stir together the dry ingredients.
Stir in the wet ingredients.
(I know. Tough.)
Shape dough into balls or use a cookie scoop.
Nothing better than these warm buttery cookies, fresh from the oven. Don’t forget the milk.
It’s the butter and oatmeal that make these so crispy and crunchy. And unlike many butter cookies, these hold their shape well because of the oatmeal.
While I do love regular oatmeal cookies, these Easy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies don’t taste like a traditional oatmeal cookie. They’re crispy and buttery. Like a good chocolate chip oatmeal cookie ought to be.
You can give this Easy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies mix as a gift. I feel slightly 90’s here, because that’s when all the mason jar homemade mixes were popular. Everybody and their brother gave (and got) these mason jar mixes at Christmas time.
Basically the dry ingredients of the recipe are in a mason jar with an attached gift card listing the needed wet/refrigerated ingredients and instructions.
I haven’t given or received one these homemade mixes in over a decade. And I don’t know why, because they’re cool. So maybe I miss the 90’s. (Maybe.)
But the dry ingredients in this recipe are perfectly proportioned to layer and fit in a one quart mason jar. Add a tag with the needed wet ingredients and instructions, and you’ve got the perfect little thank you or hostess gift.
The best part? Watching my littlest taste tester hard at work. Hudson says thumbs up and finger-lickin’ melty chocolatey good.
I tried this batch with chocolate chunks instead of chocolate chips. Score!!!
