Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: About 24 cookies

I'm pretty sure I've discussed this before but it is worth repeating: there is nothing worse than biting into what you think is a chocolate chip cookie only to discover...

    If I plan on eating the cookies, I always replace the raisins with chocolate chips. I just can’t handle them. These look absolutely perfect!

    Haha, I like both raisins and chocolate chips in my oatmeal cookies. I blame my love of Raisinets for that! These look awesome!

    Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are my favorite! I can see why you’ve already made these twice!

    Yummy yummy! I have a huge thing for the ones that they serve at Potbelly’s, and these look and sound like a great substitute (if not better)! Thanks for all the awesome recipes, Tessa πŸ™‚

    I totally agree! There have been many a time when I’ve thought I was about to bite into chocolate only to find out it’s a raisin! Loving these, definitely be making them so I know that when I bite into them there won’t be any raisins hiding in there haha!

    I hate raisins too! And it sucks because I love oatmeal cookies and they usually come with raisins, which I don’t really get. πŸ˜› Glad you finally have a recipe for a perfectly chewy and raisin-less oatmeal cookie! Can’t wait to ask my aunt to try these out. πŸ™‚

    I saw a meme once that said “Raisins that look like chocolate chip cookies are the reason I have trust issues” LOL so true!

    Thank you! Dried fruit is great in my eyes but not in cookies! The fruit and nut chocolate bar has to be worse creation in the world of chocolate bars; been tricked so many times>_<
    I love these!

    I love butterscotch chips in oatmeal cookies too – one of my favorites growing up.

    Just discovered your blog today – what a treat!

    Delicious! I like that the cookies are very oat-ey, don’t spread, and stay nice and soft! I will definitely be holding on to this recipe! Thanks!

    I tried these and they were absolutely a-maz-ing!!! Soo yummy πŸ™‚ I love oatmeal cookies so I really wanted to try this recipe.

    I saw on the Quaker oats box a recipe for “vanishing oatmeal raisin cookies”. Yeah right!!!`

    PISTACHIO ICE CREAM!! I thought it was mint chocolate chip. Hate pistachio to this day because it tricked me.

    You never let me down! I wanted to find a better oatmeal cookie recipe than my old standby and checked my go-to blogs—yours was one of them of course! But only you had exactly what I was looking for!! Thick and chewy with some crunch on the edge and lots of chocolate chips! Certainly not raisins– oh, the HORROR!!

      Haha!! So glad I had exactly what you were looking for, great minds think alike πŸ˜‰

    What happens if I just add 1/2 C oats to your ultimate chocolate chip cookie recipe? That’s what I really wanna do cuz those cookies are fantastic.

      Tessa — September 19, 2014 at 1:40 pm

      1/2 cup oats should work fine in that recipe!

    These look so good I gotta make them! I made a chewy oatmeal CCC recipe from another website and I swear they ended up hards as rocks and fast too. Nearly broke off my teeth! And it wasnt my creaming method that did it either. Seriously they sucked. So I pray these cookies stop my searching desparately for awesome oatmeal CCC!

    I really wish that weights for the ingredients were listed!! I’m about to make these and am hoping they come out well πŸ™‚

    Tessa, I love your website. I cannot wait to make these WITH raisins LOL! I have an uncle that always asks me for Oatmeal Raisin cookies, so I am going to use your recipe and replace the chocolate chips with raisins. πŸ™‚ THE HORROR!!! LOL!

    Dare I say this? I was wondering if the recipe is altered if raisins *gasp* ARE in it & no chocolate?
    I get terrible headaches from any chocolate & these with raisins are my stepsons favorite. Any type of bonding (he makes them WITH me!) I’ll put up with the shame of the raisin. Or instead I put blueberries & lemon zest in it? I guess I’m asking if the above recipe would work with my desired additions. Thanks. I forward this to all of my lucky chocolate loving-eating friends!

    These came out beautifully! I got creative and added chopped dried tart cherries and walnuts to go with the chocolate. I love love love the substantial texture of oatmeal cookies but am so unimpressed with raisins :s so once those are replaced with yummier options we get a delicious result. Thanks!
