Ingredients Needed for Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies
This cookie recipe is nothing frilly or fancy, just a down-right good cookie. That means you will need a few basic pantry ingredients to get these cookies in the oven:
- Butter (I always prefer salted)
- Brown sugar
- Vanilla extract
- Baking soda
- Semi-sweet chocolate baking bar, such as this Ghiradelli one.
To me, when it comes to making cookies, a good cookie scoop is one thing you always need! Not only does it make your life much easier, but results in a perfectly round cookie every time. Plus, the consistency of the dough is typically better because you are handling it less with your hands, and more with the scoop. Here is the medium cookie scoop that I recommend using.
Another cookie essential is a good pan. Trust me, it makes the difference! Tess from Handle the Heat does a deep dive into the best and worst baking pans to use – read it here! Did you know that there is a difference between the dark baking sheets and the light baking sheets? The different outcomes are crazy!
Whether you’re baking up a batch of these classic Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal cookies for a weekday treat, a fun weekend baking day or for the holidays, they are sure to disappear quickly before your eyes! Get your glass of milk ready for these.
