  • 1/2 cup butter at room temp
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs at room temp
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 12 oz chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with either parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of your stand mixer, or a large bowl, add the butter, sugar, eggs, and molasses (which should all be at room temp). Mix until smooth using the paddle attachment or a hand mixer.
  • In another large bowl, add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk together.
  • Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
  • Stir in the oats and chocolate chips.
  • Use a cookie scoop to drop dough onto your prepared baking sheet, leaving about 2" in between.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly brown with the centers almost done. You want them to be chewy, not crispy.
  • Let cool on the pan for about 1 minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
