Servings: 30 cookies
Calories: 165kcal


  • 2 cups all purpose flour (may sub up to 1 cup with white whole wheat flour)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter at room temperature (1 1/2 sticks)
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips divided


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (you can also use a large bowl and hand mixer), combine the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until well combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Mix in the oats and 1 cup of the chocolate chips on low speed (reserve remaining 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips for pressing into the tops of the cookies after baking, if desired).
  • Chill the dough for at least 1 hour and up to 24 hours.
  • When you are ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Using a cookie scoop or spoon, drop heaping tablespoons of dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Press the tops of the cookies down just a little bit, as the cookies won't flatten much on their own.
  • Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes, until tops are almost set. Be careful to not over-bake the cookies. If you are baking more than one pan of cookies at a time, rotate the pans halfway through the baking time.
  • As soon as the cookied come out of the oven, press a few chocolate chips into the tops of cookies. Let cookies cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.


  • Cookies freeze well. Let them cool completely and then freeze in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
