These Classic Chewy Oatmeal Cookies are crispy on the edges, chewy in the middle and have the best buttery, sweet oaty flavor. Not a fan of raisins? Leave them out and throw in some chocolate chips instead.
I know, you’re probably thinking another oatmeal cookie recipe, do I really need another one?
The answer is yes, you do.
It’s no secret I’m a total cookie junkie, especially when it comes to chocolate chip and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
I never, ever get tired of them.
These Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies have been a favorite of mine for years. They’ve literally saved me (and my whole team) during many Ragnar races. After long, exhausting legs of the race, nothing has tasted better and/or refueled our tired, aching bodies better than those oatmeal cookies.
They’re my go-to oatmeal chocolate chip cookie.But I am always trying new cookie recipes, so when I saw the recipe for these Classic Chewy Oatmeal Cookies, it took me about 3.2 seconds to decide I was going to make them.
They have browned butter in them, which sold me immediately. Because after all, isn’t everything better with browned butter?
These cookies are thick, crispy on the edges, dense and chewy in the middle and have the best flavor!
Now because I absolutely detest cooked raisins, I left them out, especially since they were optional in this recipe.
You can do what you want. . . put raisins in, leave them out, use chocolate chips instead, etc. It’s your call here.
I was actually surprised when I found myself loving the cookies without chocolate chips as much as I loved the cookies with the chocolate chips. . . go figure!
Now go make yourself a batch of these, you won’t regret it.Print
