Today’s tried and true recipe is from King Arthur Baking Company – Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies! These are the BEST chocolate chip oatmeal cookies I’ve ever made. They are soft and chewy with a crispy edge, loaded with semi-sweet chocolate chips and nutty oats. Chocolate Chip Cookie perfection. Bonus, they can be made gluten-free too.

This cookie recipe was King Arthur Baking Company’s 2015 recipe of the year. My sister sent me the recipe a few weeks ago, they have been her go-to chocolate chip cookies for the last year or so. Being married to a cookie monster, making the same chocolate chip cookies for decades, I was ready to try something new. Two glasses of milk and six cookies later, my husband said the recipe is a keeper! He still loves my Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies, but these were a tasty, welcome change.
**King Arthur Baking Company credits the original recipe to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer non-profit. Thank you for such a wonderful cookie recipe and all you do. 🍪❤️**
I followed the recipe to a T, as directed. When it’s recipe of the year, no tweaks are needed.
Pour yourself a tall glass of cold milk and grab few cookies…enjoy!
