Soft and chewy oatmeal cookies are full of tons of dark chocolate chips and a hint of cinnamon – these cookies will be a new favorite in your cookie jar!
What a week it has been so far! I meant to post these cookies for you yesterday morning, but sometimes life gets in the way of the blog. Rude, I know. But no worries, because I’m sure your Tuesday morning could use a nice dose of gooey chocolate chips – am I right? Specifically, gooey dark chocolate chips coming out of an oatmeal cookie!
Yep, these dark chocolate chip oatmeal cookies are definitely improving my week already! Just looking at a picture of that melty chocolate makes me smile.
These cookies are everything that great chocolate chip oatmeal cookies should be. The texture is super soft and chewy in the center with just a slight crisp at the edges. Brown sugar helps with that chewy texture and also gives the cookies a great flavor. There is a hint of cinnamon in the dough, which I just love in oatmeal cookies! The warm flavor of cinnamon goes so well with oatmeal. Plus I love the flavor of cinnamon and chocolate together. And then instead of plain ‘ol chocolate chips, I used dark chocolate chips. These ones from Ghirardelli are my absolute favorite. They are like mini discs, so they get super melty! Fresh out of the oven, these oatmeal cookies are heavenly! They are also good the next day. And the next, and the next!
