These chocolate chunk oatmeal cookies taste like incredible chocolate chunk cookies with a toasty and rich flavor from the oats. Perfect for a cold day!

I have to admit that I am one of those people who always used to be like, “oatmeal? in cookies? Pass!”

But these chocolate chunk oatmeal cookies are basically the best cookie recipe ever, and the oats simply add to the texture and flavor of the cookie without actually tasting like, well, oats.

This is a sturdy, chunky cookie that holds its structure well which lets the gooeyness of the chocolate shine through.

And if you’ve got kids who were as picky as me, they won’t even know these are anything but awesome chocolate chunk cookies, don’t worry.

Best Chocolate to Use

  • Save

I’m a big fan of using the chocolate that you’re the biggest fan of – you’ll want baking chocolate or chocolate chips as they won’t melt in the cookie like other chocolate (which is what you want to keep the chunks).

I love milk chocolate, and my husband loves white chocolate, so I put those together.

If you prefer dark chocolate only, you can use dark chocolate chunks.

Yes, there will be slight variations in taste based on what chocolate you use, but life’s too short to not use whatever chocolate you love the most.
