Triple Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Baking cookies is therapy to me.  Especially when they come out like these!  Then my therapy session is well spent. I feel better and I get to enjoy the rewards afterwards.

And did you notice?  We are incorporating oatmeal into our diet of cookies?  See, we now have a little balance, as I see it.

Triple Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I sent some of these down to my 2 sons and their families in Florida.  Made 2 different batches and took some into work to share.  (It all seems to work out nicely between family, work, friends, etc…).

Why Cookies Go Flat

One of my co-workers wanted to know why her cookies always go flat and why these had such nice texture.  In her case, I think she was using butter that was too soft, but there are a variety of reasons why. 

  • In this recipe, the butter is cold, not room temperature or softened.  The cookies are then scooped onto a baking sheet using a large ice cream/cookie scooper and are baked at 375 degrees.
  • Cornstarch is a thickener and we added it to bake these triple chocolate oatmeal cookies up soft and thick! Plus, oats make them hearty and the chocolate chips also help make them thicker.
  • For even thicker cookies, refrigerate 15-30 minutes or longer before baking.  
  • If you have other cookie issues and want to know why, check out these tips here and hopefully you’ll be able to pin it down and keep baking great cookies!

Want Even Thicker Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies?

For even thicker cookies, refrigerate 15-30 minutes or longer before baking.  I like to scoop them and then put them in the fridge on a baking sheet, so you don’t have to dig into the firmed up cookie dough.  You can also freeze them and bake later.

How to Store Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Oatmeal cookies usually taste best fresh out of the oven. But, since most cookies aren’t eaten fresh, storing them properly will help retain their texture, moistness and freshness.
  • Store cookies for a week or more, or if desired, you can freeze them for several months.  Cool the oatmeal cookies completely before storing them. If they are warm, they will produce condensation and may end up too soft, wet and mushy.
  • Place oatmeal cookies in their own container or sealable plastic bag, not mixed in with other cookies. Flavors can mix and make the cookies taste different. Moisture levels can also change if stored with drier or moister cookies.

  1. Hi Lexie! I’m thinking maybe too much flour? I’ve made them a lot and they are supposed to be a little thick. I used a big cookie scoop as well. Hope that helps! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I just made these! They are so delicious but Iโ€™m hoping you can help me: mine were super puffy and Iโ€™m not sure why. Anything come to mind that might cause that. I flattened the second batch a bit before poking but they came out the same.

  3. now this is my kinda therapy too! haha Baking and chocolate/oatmeal cookies is WAY better than any therapist any day! ๐Ÿ˜€ Well, it could also be that I love to bake and eat chocolate, that definitely helps! These sound like the best of two cookies in one. I find I either make oatmeal or choc chip, never both. I made your hot chocolate ones with marshmallows and they were amazing so trying these next. Thanks for another delicious recipe, Cookie Queen! ๐Ÿ˜€ xo

  4. Youโ€™re right about โ€˜dangerousโ€! Iโ€™m tempted to get out all of these ingredients right now! They are beautiful and sound so yummy! Pinned, because I know Iโ€™m going to make them. Sooner rather than later! Thanks, Kim!

  5. Don’t tell, but these oatmeal cookies look even better than the ones my mom used to make!! I would seriously just hunker down with that whole batch, so delicious!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. I love oatmeal cookies, and not just because I can pretend they’re healthy and suitable for breakfast :). These look AWESOME and next time I’m craving oatmeal cookies (which will be in about half an hour) I’m totally trying these!
