I don’t know about you, but I LOVE oatmeal raisin cookies…except for the raisins… This recipe takes the absolute best from a classic chocolate chip cookie AND oatmeal raisin. What could be better than that? These chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are HUGE, loaded with chocolate chips and oatmeal, and have just a hint of cinnamon.

Tips to make perfect chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies
- Make sure to use cold butter. This will help the cookies maintain their shape and not spread too much.
- Lemon juice. This ingredient may come as a surprise. Actually, you can’t even taste the lemon in the cookies. So why use it? Lemon juice and baking soda react together to create a chewier and smoother cookie.
- Don’t overmix the dough after adding the dry ingredients! Adding in the chocolate chips before the dry ingredients are completely incorporated will help you not mix the dough more than you have to.
- Don’t overbake! Once the cookies start to brown, they’re done. They may seem to still be extra doughy, but that’s ok. They’ll continue to cook on the pan, and will solidify as they cool. The high oven temperature bakes the cookies fast, though they come out of the oven super soft.
