We had our first snowfall yesterday and my five-year-old woke up excited when he saw that there was snow on the ground. His eyes lit up and he was like “Mommy, there is snow outside.” with the cutest smile on his face. Yup, only a child would get excited about seeing snow, lol. I get it, it’s pretty and fun to play with if you’re into that sort of thing, but it’s also darn cold.

So to warm things up inside, I’ve been baking these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for my husband and kids, and my husband’s co-workers.

This recipe is an adaptation of my Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Scotchies. I simply swapped the butterscotch chips for semi-sweet chocolate chips and increased the sugar a bit to compensate for the sweetness. What I like about this recipe is that it makes a good amount of cookies and there is no chilling involved. The cookies stay soft for days, and they are great for school lunches and after school snacks.

To make these cookies, you simply toss some flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon together. In another bowl, you cream together the butter and sugars. Mix in some eggs and vanilla. Then mix in the flour mixture. Fold in the rolled oats and chocolate chips. Now the batter is quite thick, so it is a bit of an arm workout, but well worth it. Bake for 10 minutes and you’re done!

These oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are hearty and delicious. They have perfectly crispy edges along with a soft center. They are loaded with chocolate and warm notes of brown sugar and cinnamon. They taste wholesome and decadent at the same time.
