Chewy Oatmeal Cookies – Easy Cookie Recipes

I absolutely LOVE chewy oatmeal cookies, especially when they are chewy.

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

My favorite oatmeal cookies were always the ones I bought at school. Did you have some at school too?

Once I graduated from school I could no longer enjoy my favorite cookies, so sad. That’s until I decided to make my own. :)

I’ve been making Oatmeal Cookies for my little family for years.

They enjoy them as much as I do, if not more. I often make them just before the girls get home from school as a little after-school treat.

They know I’ve made them as soon as they walk into the house, Mom! You made oatmeal cookies! It smells so good when you walk in the house!

Sébastien loves them too! He takes one with him to work to enjoy with his morning coffee.

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

Makes about 12 large cookies

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of brown sugar
  • 1 cup of butter (I use salted) – room temperature
  • 2 eggs – room temperature
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • 2 ¼ cups of flour
  • 2 ¼ cups of oats (I use quick oats)
  • ½ tbsp of baking powder
  • 2 tsp of baking soda

Instructions:

– Pre-heat oven to 350°F.

– In a large bowl, using a mixer, mix together the brown sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla until smooth.

– In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, oats, baking powder, and baking soda.

– Using a mixer, slowly add and mix the dry ingredients (contents of medium bowl) with the contents of the large bowl.

– Take out a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper.

– Make balls with the cookie dough mixture (about 1/3 cup per ball), place them onto the cookie sheet (I usually put 4-5 balls per cookie sheet), and use a fork or your fingers and press down on them a little.

– Place the cookie sheet in the oven, on the middle rack, and bake for about 10-14 minutes. (I take them out of the oven as soon as they are golden underneath.)

– Place cookies on a cooling rack.

You can easily modify this recipe to your liking.

Extra chewy cookies

If you like your cookies extra chewy, do not press down on the balls of dough before placing them in the oven.

After a few minutes of baking, take out the cookie sheet, use a fork to push down on the cookies a little, and place them back into the oven until they are completely baked.

Crispy Cookies

If you like them crispy, use wax paper to roll the dough into balls (it allows you to make them firm without getting your hands all sticky).

Then use wax paper to press them down firmly onto your cookie sheet.

What to add to cookie batter for extra flavor

You can also add raisins, chocolate chips, and even dried cranberries into your cookie batter.

And voilà, you have delicious oatmeal cookies for you and your family!

my batter seemed a tad runny. I used soft butter from the tub if that makes a difference...also, I didn't use a mixer. Lol I hate the clean up afterwards...hope these turn out! I have them in the oven now ?
