Question & Answer

Why are my oatmeal chocolate chip cookies flat?

A few common culprits of flat cookies are:

  • the butter was too soft or melted in the dough
  • there isn’t enough flour
  • the cookie sheet was hot before baking (make sure to let it cool completely between batches)
  • using chopped chocolate pieces instead of chocolate chips 
  • baking cookies on a silicone baking mat instead of ungreased cookie sheet

Why didn’t my oatmeal chocolate chip cookies flatten at all?

  • there is too much flour in the dough
  • you used frozen cookie dough

What will keep my cookies from burning on the bottom?

  • The number one thing is to know exactly how long cookies need to bake in your oven. Every oven operates differently, and even one minute extra in the oven can be the difference between perfectly golden and burnt.
  • Likewise, you may need to adjust your oven temperature a little bit depending on if yours runs a little extra hot.
  • Parchment paper! While parchment won’t prevent the cookies from burning, it will protect your baking your baking sheets from mix-ins burning to the baking sheet.

I loved my mom’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies while I was growing up. Nobody baked cookies as good as my mom’s, and this recipe was her favorite!


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Beat butter and brown sugar until smooth.
  3. Add eggs one at a time, mixing in between additions. Add milk and vanilla. Mix until creamy.
  4. Add all-purpose flour, oats, baking soda, and salt. Mix until dough forms and fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Spoon heaping tablespoons (or use a cookie scoop) on to a greased (or lined) baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 9-11 minutes, until edges turn golden brown and the center of the cookie is set.
