Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies and a recipe for homemade cookie mix!

This is my mom’s famous Choc-Oat-Chip cookie recipe and a family favorite! My mom is the best cookie baker on the planet, and I love sharing her recipes with you guys whenever I get the chance.

I’ve had an itch to make a baking mix ever since I saw Dorothy’s Brownie Mix  last month. So I decided to take our family stand-by classic Chocolate Chip Cookies and make a mix out of the recipe that is just as easy to use as a store-bought mix, but infinitely times more delicious and budget friendly!

This recipe makes enough mix for about 8-10 dozen cookies (depending on how large you make the cookies)! So you’ll want to be sure to have a large mixing bowl on hand and know how you want to store it. Zip lock bags are a good option, and, as you can see, you could also use a very large cookie jar.

Just like a store-bought mix, all you’ll need to do is add the wet ingredients, scoop, and bake! There’s no chilling involved (which was a happy surprise I hadn’t even planned on!). And, if you’re the freezer type, this dough even goes from freezer to oven without a problem.

This recipe is incredibly versatile– I like plain chocolate chips the best, but we also frequently add M&Ms and sometimes Reese’s cups! Even though chocolate chips are pictured in the mix above, I’m not including the chocolate chips in the mix recipe, so that you can swap them out for whatever you want. Keep that in mind! If you add chocolate chips to the mix prior to measuring out for mixing, it could throw off your measurements– the dry ingredients wouldn’t necessarily be the right ratio to wet ingredients. My guess is that there wouldn’t be much of a difference in the result, but I haven’t tested it myself.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix


    For the Dry Mix:
  • 2 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 5 cups old fashioned oats
  • For Cookies made with Mix:
  • 2 3/4 cups Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
  • 1 stick butter, room temp
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 cup mix-ins (chocolate chips, nuts, etc...)


    For the Cookie Mix:
  1. Mix together all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Store in an airtight container.
  2. For Cookies made with Mix:
  3. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  4. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl (a stand mixer works great!) until dough forms.
  5. Scoop cookie dough onto a lined baking sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake for 9-10 minutes until edges are golden brown. Let cool on cookie sheet.


Mix yields 4 batches of cookies. 1 batch of baked cookies yields approximately 2 dozen cookies.
