There's something so wholesome about chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Not only are they sweet and delicious, they are also filling because of the oats!

Soft Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Tips
- We use old-fashioned oats for this recipe.
- Make sure to use softened butter, not melted. This keeps the cookie soft and chewy.
- You can use semi-sweet chocolate chips or milk chocolate chips.
- When you place the rolled out cookie dough balls on the cookie sheet, smash them down just a bit. This helps them cook evenly!
- Keep any cookies stored cover or in an air-tight container to keep them soft and fresh.
How to make these Oatmeal Chocolate chip cookies
The first thing you will do is pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, combine your softened butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together in a mixing bowl. Mix on medium speed until the sugars are well creamed together.
Next, add in the egg, vanilla, and baking soda. Mix this together until well-combined.
Then, add in your all-purpose flour, ½ cup at a time. Mix well after each addition.
The cookie dough should be creamy and light. Then, add in your old-fashioned oatmeal. Mix this for about 2 minutes.
Then, you will add in the chocolate chips, and mix for another minute until they are evenly mixed into this cookie dough.
Then, scoop the cookie dough into balls and place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Smash them down just a bit with the palm of your hand, so they cook evenly.
Then, bake these cookies for 8-10 minutes or until the edges start to turn brown. The center might still be a little bit gooey, but the trick is to leave them on the cookie sheet for 5 additional minutes. Although they are out of the oven the cookie sheet is still hot, and will continue to cook it.
Finally, enjoy! These cookies stay soft for 3-4 days if you keep them covered or in an air-tight container.
