These cookies are packed with oats and are bursting with rich chocolate in every bite! Now the classic oatmeal chocolate chip cookie has a fun spin on it for Valentine’s Day. See blog post for more cookie variations.


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned whole rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Line a baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350˚F.
  3. In a large mixing bowl beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together oats, flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Add your dry ingredients to your butter mixture. Beat until incorporated. Add chocolate chips.
  5. Spread batter onto your prepared baking pan. Using a spatula or floured hands, press the cookie dough into one large flat layer – like one giant cookie.
  6. Bake in the center of the oven for 10 -12 minutes, until the middle of the cookie is fully baked.
  7. Place on a cooling rack and let rest for a few minutes. While the cookies are still warm, very carefully not to burn yourself, cut out little heart shaped cookies. I used a 2 inch heart shaped cookie cutter. If you’d like to make cookies that hang from a glass rim, use a sharp knife and cut a thin rectangle out of the center of the heart (again while the cookies are still warm).


Variation – to make regular cookies, scoop tablespoon size cookies on a baking sheet approx. 1.5 inches apart. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
