Vanilla Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are one of the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipes I have ever tried - they definitely my new favourite cookie! I read somewhere that adding pudding mix into a cookie recipe makes them really flavourful and chewy, so I thought I would give it a try. The addition of the vanilla pudding mix really does make these cookies something special! It gives them a super delicious flavour and the oats make them perfectly crunchy. Before you know it these cookies will have disappeared!


1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 package vanilla pudding mix - You can use either the 4 or 6 serving size
2 and 1/2 cups rolled oats
2 cups chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, cream together the sugars and butter with a mixer. Add in the vanilla and eggs and beat well. Then add the flour, baking soda, salt, and puddig mix. Mix well. Stir in the oatmeal and chocolate chips.

Roll the dough into small balls and place on the prepared cookie sheets. These cookies don't spread very much while baking so you can flatten the balls of dough a little if desired. Bake for 10-11 minutes or until the tops are golden. Remove from oven and place on wire racks to cool.
