My mom’s oatmeal cookies

These are the cookies my mom always made us growing up. They’re mostly oats, and require very few ingredients. They are somewhat “healthy”, in a granola kind of way.

This recipe makes around 9 medium cookies.


optional add-ins


  1. begin heating your oven to 375F.
  2. mix your dry ingredients (not including chocolate chips)
  3. add your fat, and work it into the dry ingredients. It should form a sort of sandy, pebbly mixture. Use your hands to ensure there are no large clumps.
  4. add your wet ingredients.
  5. add your chocolate chips (around 150g is a good amount.)
  6. portion onto a parchment-lined baking sheet into 9 equal scoops.
  7. bake for 18-22 minutes, removing once the craggy bits are starting to get golden.
