  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tspn ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tspn ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tspn baking soda
  • 1 tspn kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup butter (room temp)
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat your oven to 350″
  • Using a large bowl, add flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and salt – whisk until combined
  • Using a hand mixer, beat butter, vanilla, water, brown sugar and sugar until combined and creamy
  • Slowly add your dry ingredients, one scoop at a time, whipping with your hand mixer until all of the flour is incorporated and fully combined
  • Pour in your oats and chocolate chips and fold it all together until it’s evenly combined – I use my hands as this dough is THICK
  • Using your hands, shape dough into roughly 3″ rounds, about a half inch thick.  space your cookies out on your baking sheet about 2″ apart
Bake at 350 for 11-12 minutes. Remove from oven and let the cookies cool and set on the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack. Store cooled cookies in an air tight container.
