Hey!  Do you know what day it is?

National Oatmeal Cookie Day!

What better way to honor the day than with my favorite Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe?!  

Traditionally, raisins go in oatmeal cookies but I much prefer chocolate chips.  After all, everything’s better with a little chocolate!  You probably already have most (or all) of the ingredients, so go ahead….celebrate the day!!!  

Here’s the Recipe:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup butter – softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • dash nutmeg
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (I used dark chocolate)

  1. Wow, I am getting hungry over here. Oatmeal cookies are one of my favorites. These sound great. Pinning.
    Thanks for sharing at Wake Up Wednesday,

  2. These look so delicious! But somehow, every time I’m making cookies, they end up kind of runny, and as such too thin – I was wondering if maybe you had any tips on that? Don’t want to risk that happening with this recipe 🙂

    Hi, Danita! I just recently put up a recipe for cookies similar to these in honor of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Week last week, so I came right over from Small Victories Sunday to check yours out! 🙂 They look delicious…I’ll take one for breakfast! 😉

      What?! I missed National Chocolate Chip Cookie WEEK! I usually never miss an opportunity to each cookies, especially chocolate. I’m totally marking my calendar for next year! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and sharing with us at Small Victories. Have a blessed week!

      I know exactly what you mean Lisa! I made these a couple of weeks ago and after spending time writing the post and looking at the pictures I went straight into the kitchen to make a batch. Thanks for stopping by.
