  • 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks), softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp kosher sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or a large mixing bowl with a handheld attachment, add the butter. Beat on medium-low speed for 2 minutes. Add the sugars and beat on medium-low speed for 1 minute.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add the vanilla and mix to combine.
  • In a separate mixing bowl whisk together the oats, flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. With mixing speed on low, gradually add the dry ingredients. Mix just until a few flour streaks remain.
  • Add in chocolate chips and mix until combined.
  • Cover dough and place in the refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes. This is an important step, so DO NOT SKIP.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Using a standard size cookie scoop, portion the dough into balls. Place 12 on a sheet.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 11-13 minutes or until the edges begin to brown and the middle is set. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the sheet for 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Repeat with remaining dough.


Note: you can swap out the chocolate chips for raisins.
