The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe


I’ve tried so many homemade chocolate chip cookies in my life and always wind up a little disappointed with the end result. That is until I worked tirelessly to perfect the best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever!! Okay, maybe not in all of history, but these homemade cookies are gooey, delicious and everyone who tried them said they were the best, so I’m sticking with it! There are 3 key components to making these chocolate chip cookies; super fine ground rolled oats, refrigerating the dough overnight (is a MUST) and not over-baking them! There’s something about the rolled oats that add a perfect moistness to the cookies. You can’t tell that the oats are even in the dough! You have to use a food processor to turn the oats into a powder. I also experimented with the dough and the best result was refrigerating it overnight. It made a world of difference over the frozen dough or even just using it right away. There is nothing better than when you refrigerate it. Also, add a little sea salt over the top after you bake them! Try this chocolate chip cookie recipe out and let me know your thoughts!

Make sure you add course sea salt on the top after the cookies bake. It’s SO good!!

          Oh sorry, read that super fast! Measure the oats first, then add them to a food processor, pour that into the mix 🙂

      Yay! I love hearing this!! I honestly do think they are some of the best homemade… I’ve had such bad luck finding a good chocolate chip cookie recipe that I love, but now I’m obsessed with these!!! I ALWAYS refrigerate the dough overnight though!

    Hi! I don’t have a food processor but I still want to make these! Do you think it would be good to make without processing the oats? Also, I don’t have oats at the moment so could I just use 2 more cups of flower? Thanks!

      I wouldn’t us two more cups of flour, you can try just whole oats, but they will taste more like an oatmeal cookie. Hope it works out!

    I live at high altitude (5820 feet) in Colorado. Is there an adjustment for ingredients or baking time? Sometimes recipes call for more flour but I wanted to check with you first. Thanks!
