These are my new favorite oatmeal cookies! They have lots of healthy oats in them, along with chopped pecans, raisins, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. The recipe I’m sharing with you is adapted from one I found at Allrecipes.com. My version has more chocolate chips and a little less raisins. I made mine jumbo size, too, so the baking time is a little longer. These are thick and chewy and really yummy. And because the batter has 3 cups of oatmeal in it, they must be at least a little healthy, right? 🙂 This recipe makes about 23-24 jumbo-size cookies.
JUMBO OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES by NancyCreative, adapted from Allrecipes
- 1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour (I used unbleached flour)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups old-fashioned oats
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease cookie sheets.
In a large bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in the oats, chocolate chips, raisins, and pecans, one ingredient at a time. Scoop dough with a 1/4 cup size measuring cup and drop dough onto the prepared cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes 23 to 24 jumbo cookies.

This is one of my favorite books!! It can be so fusterating not being able to see into the future. I tend to think I can control the things around me if I know where we’re headed. This book is a great reminder that God is in control and to leave things in His hands.
I think I’d want to try to control things too if I knew what was up ahead…I guess that’s why God shows us things a step at a time. The book is also reminding me how important it is to trust in Him with all my heart, even though I may not understand what He is doing. His plans are always best!
Oh my gosh this looks wonderfully tasty! Thanks for linking up to Savory Sundays!!
Mmm I want to make these now! I love oats with anything and they look so good!

Thanks for reminding me, Ashton! 🙂
This the exact recipe that my mother always made and I have always made and I am 70 so you know it has been around a long time. These are the one cookie that my grand kids always ask for whether there is raisins and chocolate chips in them or not.
That’s great that you and your mom have made these cookies all these years! That just goes to show how good they are! 🙂

Thanks so much, Stephanie Lynn!
I love these cookies! I like to add 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg to the batter when I make them in the fall.
I bet they’re great with the nutmeg, Peggy! 🙂
