Chocolate Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies | I turn into Cookie Monster when we bake these... #cookies #oatmeal #recipe

Today, my daughter learned the meaning of the word, “Mooooooommmmm!”

She’s been saying “mom” for a while, but not like this. Today, she learned that when she says it, I come.

Of course, today, I still think it’s cute. I’m aware that the novelty of it will soon wear off (probably by tomorrow). But tonight, I still it’s utterly heart melting. I’m still amazed anytime she says anything and understands the meaning behind it. So to grasp the concept of a word that means ME? Pretty fabulous.

So that was our game today. It went something like this:

“Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mooommmmmmmmm?”


“Shoe on.”


I leave the room.

“Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom?”


“Dress on.”

“Ok. Yes, Belle looks very pretty in her dress.”

I leave the room.



“Shoe off.”


Chocolate Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies | I turn into Cookie Monster when we bake these... #cookies #oatmeal #recipe

It was a nice part of my day. A little more physically active than I typically like to be (with all the ups and downs), but still nice to have that interaction with her :) .

Ok, so these cookies, right?

Let me put into words how incredible these are: they were meant to go elsewhere as a guest post. But I took one bite and knew they would have to stay here.

Frankly, I can’t even bring myself to bake the rest of the dough, because I turn into Cookie Monster the moment these come out of the oven. (Thanks for all of your great cookie-dough-gift-giving suggestions by the way! I’ll be putting them to good use :) )

Anyway. I hope you guys love these as much as we did over here!!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. In a stand mixer, beat together the butter and the shortening. Add the brown sugar and granulated sugar, beat until creamy.
  2. Add the eggs, one at a time and mixing in between each addition.
  3. Add the sea salt and the vanilla. Mix well.
  4. Mix in the cocoa powder, flour, oats, and baking soda until dough forms, but don't over mix.

    You are absolutely going to be the ruination of my diet. These just look too good.

    Oh Ashton. These look perfect. I definitely need to make these. If they are chewy, I’m in deep trouble.

    All I can think of is YUM!!! I love that they are chocolate with chocolate chips!!!

    I love oatmeal cookies and have never tried a chocolate version. Can’t wait to make it :)

    I don’t have any sea salt on hand…I wonder, do you think you can use regular table salt instead? I’d love to make these today.

    • Ashton posted on January 24, 2013 at 12:44 am (#)

      Yep! Regular salt is fine– sorry I’m so late in replying!

    It is VERY sweet when your little ones start talking, and especially when they call you mom (mommy):) Precious! These cookies are a perfect way to celebrate such a milestone, and every other milestone to come:)

    Wow! That looks like one serious cookie. I love it being a twist with the chocolate chocolate mix.

  9. Jessica@AKitchenAddiction posted on January 23, 2013 at 1:44 pm (#)

    Oatmeal cookies are the best. . .especially when loaded with all of this chocolate!

  10. Liz posted on January 23, 2013 at 1:47 pm (#)

    Love the double chocolate version, especially with oatmeal. Double chocolate anything is good in my books!

    I LOOVE the border on your blog! I’ve never had a chocolate oatmeal cookie! What a yummy change from the norm! Cute post too. I never, never, tired of being called mom. It’s my favorite name!

  12. Pat posted on January 23, 2013 at 2:33 pm (#)

    Someone once told me that kids do the “Mom” thing when they want your attention, but haven’t yet begun to frame the question – in other words – when I’m ready, I want you to be ready.

    Mooooommm! I am in love with these cookies!

    Love it! My daughter says “ma” anytime she wants something, so I’m with you. It’s totally cute. She still calls everyone ma because she’s learned that’s what works :)

    Cookies look great too!

    Love, love, love the new design, especially the mixer. Your daughter sounds adorable. My 2 year old son is finally starting to talk more and is now a parrot, repeating every word 50 times. These cookies are calling my name. Double chocolate is always a winner.

  22. Sarah posted on January 24, 2013 at 1:35 am (#)

    Had to stop by and say how much I love the styling in your picture! Beautiful and delicious :)

    Oatmeal is one of the best ingredients in the whole wide world… at least to me:D

  24. Emily posted on February 2, 2013 at 6:30 pm (#)

    I can’t wait to try this recipe. It looks yummy. Pinning this now! :)

  25. Averie @ Averie Cooks posted on February 4, 2013 at 1:02 am (#)

    They sound crazy good. Pinned!

    And love that they were THAT good that they weren’t going to be guest posted and that you hung onto them. That’s saying something of how good they must be!

    Oh these cookies will be my diet down fall!! But that’s okay! They look so good! My boys are begging me to make them today! Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  27. Donna posted on February 28, 2013 at 5:35 pm (#)

    Hi. These cookies sound so good! I hope to make them soon.

    Just an FYI — the link to the strawberry cheesecake ice cream is broken. It should be: but it has some additional code in the URL.

  28. Caitlin posted on March 9, 2013 at 3:36 pm (#)

    I’m making these puppies right now! The batter is delicious, I looked high and low for a good chewy chocolate cookie recipe, glad to have found this! Looking forward to the end result. I recommend chilling the dough before you bake, it will produce thicker cookies. Thanks!

  29. Kolleen posted on April 1, 2013 at 9:37 pm (#)

    I made these to take to my neighborhood Bunco group. I took the advice of another reviewer and chilled the dough prior to baking. (I only had time to put it in the freezer for maybe 10-15 mins.) This did help them from turning out too flat…but they weren’t super puffy either. I had to bake these the full 14 mins., however. The recipe makes about 40 cookies, if using an average size cookie scoop. They are delicious! As a chocolate lover, I knew these would not disappoint. Can’t wait to make them again.

    Fabulous! I substituted white chocolate chips for half the semi-sweet morsels. The little bits of white look great and taste yummy. I also used instant oatmeal to keep the texture smoother for the kids. It worked, so they are getting a little good grains with these otherwise sinful delights. We are half the batch within half an hour. I can’t wait to make them again. Thanks for a great recipe.

    Do you deliver? Those look so good…and so dangerous all at the same time :)

  32. Cassie posted on June 12, 2013 at 7:25 pm (#)

    I have made these a few times and love them! I have made a few changes a few times. I’ve actually made them without the cocoa just for something different. They are delicious both ways. I posted about them on my blog.. which I just started. :)

  33. John posted on August 16, 2013 at 2:19 am (#)

    I’m a novice baker so I apologize for a couple questions which probably sound pretty obvious to you. When you say “shortening,” what does that mean? Is it like Crisco or is it cooking oil or something else? And do the oats need to be cooked first or are they just added in as a raw dry ingredient? These look great and I can’t wait to make them and eat them! Thank you.

    • Ashton posted on October 12, 2013 at 11:11 pm (#)

      Yes– Crisco :) Although you could just use butter! And add the oatmeal raw :)

  34. Mamma posted on April 12, 2014 at 9:52 am (#)

    I’m short on butter, and it’s a cold rainy day here and don’t want to drag my newborn and toddler out. Do you think substituting about half coconut oil in place of the butter I’m short would work?

    • Ashton posted on June 11, 2014 at 2:10 pm (#)

      I know it’s too late for this, but I think you probably could. Did you? How did it turn out?
