The Best Oats For Cookies

When making oatmeal cookies old-fashioned rolled oats are what you want to use. They have a flat shape that works well for holding a cookie shape and adds the right amount of chewiness to this delicious recipe! 

Tips to Remember When Making Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Use unsalted butter: I personally like to use unsalted when baking because every butter is salted differently. To avoid overly salty cookies use unsalted butter and salt yourself. 
  • Vegan butter: I’ve used both regular butter and vegan butter in this recipe and had identical results from both. If you are looking for a dairy-free recipe I recommend using vegan butter or coconut oil if preferred. 
  • Nut butter: You can use either peanut butter, almond butter, or cashew butter in this recipe. Or any other favorite nut butter. 
  • My favorite cookie scooper: To get the perfect sized cookie I like to use a 3-inch cookie scoop or measure 1.5 Tablespoons of dough instead.
  • How to store oatmeal chocolate chip cookies: Seal in a ziplock bag or container a store at room temperature for 3-5 days. Or freeze for up to 2 months.
