I absolutely LOVE oatmeal cookies, especially when they are chewy. 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. This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience.

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies Recipe
Makes about 12 large cookies
– 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
– 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.
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.
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.
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!
Don’t they look delicious?! Gabrielle ate the last one yesterday, I think I may make some more today! YUMMY!
