  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats old-fashioned, quick-cooking rolled oats used here
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup salted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl beat together butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until combined.
  • Beat eggs and vanilla extract into butter/sugar mixture until batter is fluffy.
    TIP: Use room temperature butter and eggs to help ingredients incorporate together.
  • In a small bowl combine flour, rolled oats, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
  • Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat to combine fully.
  • Mix in all of the chocolate chips.
  • Cover the bowl with a piece of plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
    TIP: Chilling the dough helps the cookies hold their shape while baking.
  • Scoop chilled cookie dough with a medium cookie scoop and space dough 1 1/2 inch apart on prepared cookie sheets.
  • Press dough down just slightly on the top. The cookies will not spread or change shape too much during cooking, but pressing them down a bit will help them cook evenly and form a nice shape.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes until cookies are set in the center.
  • Cool for 2 to 3 minutes on cookie sheet and then remove to a cooling rack to cool.
  • Serve warm or cool.
