    My kids call these “craving cookies”. They will say, “Mom, will you make me that one cookie? I am craving it!” We all know they mean these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies… the perfect combination of rich oatmeal cookie and delicious chocolate!

    Simply the best Oatmeal cookie ever... grandma would be proud!

    There is another aspect to these cookies that I love… the “secret” ingredient. It was my grandma’s recipe and she always made the BEST cookies. When I found out I was a bit shocked… but they taste so good I quickly got over it.

    Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


        • 1 1/2 c firmly packed dark brown sugar
        • 3/4 c mayo
        • 1 egg
        • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
        • 3 c quick-cooking oats
        • 1 c all-purpose flour
        • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
        • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
        • 3/4 c semi-sweet chocolate chip


        1. Preheat oven to 350°.
        2. In medium bowl, beat brown sugar, mayo, egg, and vanilla for about 2 minutes. (You can use a hand-held mixer or stand mixer, but grandma recommends doing it by hand.) Set aside.
        3. In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, cinnamon, and baking soda.
        4. Slowly add the mayo mixture to the oat mixture and stir by hand until just combined.
        5. Stir in chocolate chips.
        6. On prepared baking sheets, drop dough by level tablespoonfuls, 3-inches apart.
        7. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden.
        8. Cool cookies on a wire rack.

        Recipe from Grandma’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

        Simply the best Oatmeal cookie ever... grandma would be proud!

        These cookies are perfect for one big reason… they are an amazing “base” recipe. I have used them with quick oats, with regular oatmeal, with granulated sugar, butter instead of mayo, raisin’s instead of chocolate chips… you name it! And they always turn out perfectly.

        We can never go wrong with these 🙂 Thank you so much !

        Mayo? That’s crazy lol. I’m gong to try these. Any particular brand of mayo you recommend?

        There a little crumbly

        Mayonnaise sounds interesting. I can’t wait to try it.

        This is my first time to try in every of your recipes.
        My oat choco chip cookies turned out nothing like your photo, I followed your recipe exactly and the three cups of oats just sucked up the mayonnaise and I was left w a thick glob of flour sugar and oats. Cookies turned out overwhelmingly, cloyingsweet (like less than half a cup of sugar would’ve worked as the chips added some sweetness too). I mixed exact proportion and was left w a thick dense bowl of ingredients that didn’t flatten while baking. They also needed about 15 mins of baking time, not 8-10. I’m not a novice cook or baker but wanted to share honest feedback as now I’m reluctant to try your other beautiful recipes or waste quality ingredients on imbalanced recipes. I love your photos and creativity, thank you.

        Super de bonne recette. C’est de valeur que c’est en anglais.

        Thank you so much for the recipe. I just followed it step by step (replaced mayo with butter). Cookies came out really well. It was delicious!

        I tried this cookie recipe and it’s too sweet for me. But definely, I’ll bake it again and make sure to reduce the sugar. Thanks for sharing.

        Don't Pass on Dessert!
