It’s the first day of school here in Newfoundland! And it’s also the first day of cookie season in the Parsons household.

So we’re starting the year right with these perfect oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. They are a real kid classic after school snack with a tall glass of cold milk.

Most of the time these days, our cookie batches don’t even make it to after school! Both of my kids are in Junior High which is right around the corner from our house. So, coming home for lunch with several friends tagging along is a daily occurrence here.

Dark Chocolate Chips, to melt and dip the biscotti

I like dark chocolate chips at 50% cocoa in this recipe but you can use any kind you like.

Both of my kids are excellent cookie bakers and there are almost always freshly baked cookies available in our counter top cookie jar.

From chocolate chip, to oatmeal to peanut butter cookies, it seems at least one of the bakers in this household manage to keep the jar filled.

Wonder why we have so many kids visit, huh? These soft, crispy edged, chewy cookies will undoubtedly be made many times during the school year. Have a great school year folks!

Just made these and they are excellent. First time making oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and I did think there would be more oatmeal. Regardless, I feel they are yummy and hoping my co-worker agrees. She had a bad day yesterday (Distance learning is hard for teachers too.), so I thought I would make her favorite cookies.

My only question is the amount of cookies made. I used a tablespoon, not a teaspoon like your recipe says, yet it looks like I will get closer to 36 cookies- still baking them. Oddly enough, the time is perfect. I live in the US, are there differences in our spoon sizes?

Thanks for a wonderful recipe. 🙂

Would it be okay to substitute raisins for chocolate chips in this recipe?

Hi Barry,

Longtime fan of Rock Recipes, and I have all of your cook books. So many good things in them! Made these yesterday for some snacks for my book group. My go-to is normally oatmeal raisin, but thought I would try these. We were not disappointed! All that had one, asked for the recipe. I used Godiva dark chocolate chips...they were very nice, and a half cup of walnuts because I had them handy. I had to hide a couple for myself to have with a cuppa this morning! I will be sharing the recipe and making them again soon!
