Soft Batch Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are the ultimate back to school treat whether you pack them in a lunch, use them as a homework bribe, or just keep them for yourself!


makes about 1 1/2 dozen cookies

Total time

0 minutes




  • ½ cup, 1 stick, butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • ⅔ cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  1. Set the oven to 350F
  2. Slice the butter into chunks and microwave for about 3-40 seconds until it's mostly melted.
  3. Beat in the two sugars until light and fluffy, and then blend in the egg and vanilla.
  4. Stir in the dry ingredients,
  5. When the dry ingredients are almost incorporated, go ahead and add the chocolate chips, and continue to mix just until everything is nicely incorporated.
  6. I use a 1 7/8 cookie scoop to scoop out the dough, and then flatten slightly just slightly with my fingers. I like to add a couple of extra chocolate chips to the surface of the dough before I bake them.
  7. Place on an un-greased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.
  8. Bake for 10-11 minutes. The cookies will look puffy and pale, but that's what you want for a soft textured cookie.
  9. Let cool on the pan briefly and then move to a rack.
