Soft, chewy, chocolate oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips. Whenever I make these cookies, my boys try to convince me that they can eat them for breakfast since they are oatmeal cookies. I think I’m lucky if any even make it to breakfast the next day!
To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, stir together 2 cups each of rolled oats and chocolate chips. Set aside.
In another bowl, whisk together 1 1/2 c flour, 1/2 teaspoon each of baking soda and salt, and 1/4 c baking cocoa. Set aside.
In your mixing bowl, beat together 1/2 c sugar, 1 c brown sugar and 1 c (2 sticks) room temperature butter. Beat these for about 2 minutes until they are really fluffy and creamy.
Mix in 2 eggs, one at a time.
Mix in 2 tablespoon of milk and a teaspoon of vanilla.
The mixture should be nice and fluffy. Add in your flour mixture, mix well and make sure to scrape the bowl to get it all combined.
Add in your oats and chocolate chips.
Stir until just combined.
Scoop by rounded tablespoons onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 11 minutes. The cookies will remain very soft.
Allow them to cool on the sheet for a few minutes, then remove them to a cooling rack and cool completely. Look at all these lovely cookies!
