  • 1 1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup mayo
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • In a 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.
  • In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, cinnamon, and baking soda.
  • Slowly add the mayo mixture to the oat mixture and stir by hand until just combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chips. (I save a few to place on top before baking) 
  • On prepared baking sheets, drop dough by level tablespoonfuls, 3-inches apart. (they will spread some)
  • Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden.
  • Cool cookies on a wire rack.
