This recipe is pretty straight forward and best of all, fool proof! I’ve tested it a million times and it’s now a household favorite. Some of the ingredients you might not have on hand, such as tahini or bread flour. But trust me, they’re worth a Target run. I use tahini almost every day, whether it’s for baking or as dressing on my salad bowl, you’re going love it.

Bread flour isn’t typically a common pantry item. But if you love cookies, whether it’s oatmeal or chocolate chips, your going to love their texture even more if you use bread flour. My favorite brand is King Arthur flour, which you can also find at Target or Amazon Prime Now.

To make these cookies you have to combine the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients, fold in the chocolate chunks and pecans (or your favorite nuts) and that’s it. If you want to take it a step further (and if you love chocolate, like me) add a piece/square of your favorite dark chocolate on top of the dough balls for extra chocolate puddles.

Sprinkle with sea salt flakes (I use Maldon Sea Salt Flakes) and enjoy!

Tips for the best Oatmeal Cookies

  • My favorite tip is to chill the dough for at least 30 minutes before baking. It makes it easier and less messy to handle. Most importantly, chilling the dough solidifies the fat in the cookies, which means the cookies will spread less when baking. The result? Perfectly sized cookies.
  • I prefer using gluten free oats. The best variety for oatmeal cookies is are the old fashioned rolled oats because they hold their shape really well during baking.
  • Use a combination of brown sugar and white sugar. Adding brown sugar allows for a softer, chewier and puffier cookies.

  1. Hi – Eggs are missing from the ingredient list but they are in the instructions…SOS…just starting mixing my ingredients together. 2 eggs?

  2. Hey, lovely recipe but could you please provide a substitute for eggs? I don’t want to use them..

  3. Just double checking, is bread flour gluten free? The top of the description says these are gluten free cookies.

    1. You can use 1-1 baking gluten free flour if you’d like (as noted in the recipe card). Or use ap and bread flour if gluten isn’t an issue for you.
