Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are a type of cookie that combines the flavors of oatmeal and chocolate chips. They typically feature a base of oats, butter, sugar, and flour, along with other ingredients such as eggs, vanilla extract, and baking soda or powder.

To make oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, the oats are usually combined with the other dry ingredients, while the butter and sugars are creamed together. The dry ingredients are then gradually incorporated into the creamed mixture, followed by the addition of chocolate chips. The dough is usually chilled for a short period to help prevent the cookies from spreading too much during baking.

Once the dough is ready, it is portioned into individual cookies and baked in the oven until golden brown. The result is a delicious treat with a slightly chewy texture from the oats and pockets of melty chocolate throughout.
