When most people have a craving for cookies, they want them within the hour. Not hours or even days later.

And they don’t want to dirty a million dishes or drag out a (stand) mixer in pursuit of their cookie goal.

Enter this incredibly fast and easy recipe that produces cookies that turn out perfectly thick with soft centers and chewy edges.

Just add everything to one bowl, stir by hand with one spoon, and you’re ready to bake. I added chocolate chips but you can add raisins, walnuts, or whatever you love in oatmeal cookies.

While I’m normally a huge advocate of chilling cookie dough to avoid cookies that spread or are thin, you don’t have to with this recipe. Not having to chill the dough makes the cookies 20-minute cookies. From the time you’re struck with a cookie craving until the time you’re eating said cookies, it’s 20 minutes.

Since you’re beating the dough together with elbow grease, I highly recommend having the butter and egg at room temperature. The softer the butter is, the easier your job will be. Of course you can use an electric mixer but that defeats the purpose of as few dishes and as easy as possible.

Didn’t plan ahead for room temp ingredients? No problem. Pop your butter in the microwave for 10 seconds or until it’s just barely showing signs of melting. Add the egg to a bowl of very hot water for a couple minutes. A warm egg emulsifies easier than a cold one.

I highly recommend a cookie scoop. The dough is soft, warm, and the domed shape a scoop produces is essential to preventing excess spreading. Same goes for a Silpat, use one.

One-Bowl, No-Mixer, No-Chill Oatmeal Cookies – An incredibly FAST and EASY recipe that produces perfectly thick cookies with chewy edges and soft centers!! One bowl to wash, no mixer to drag out, and no waiting around!!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), very soft
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned whole rolled oats (not instant or quick cook)
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, plus more for after baking (or substitute with raisins, walnuts, etc.)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F, line a baking sheet with a Silpat or spray with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. To a large bowl, add the egg, butter, sugars, vanilla, and mix with a spoon aggressively for about 90 seconds, or until smooth and slightly fluffed, i.e. your bicep and shoulder should be burning if you’ve mixed well enough.
  3. Add the oats, flour, baking soda, salt, and stir to combine.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and stir to combine.
  5. Using a 2-tablespoon cookie scoop, form mounds and place on prepared baking sheet spaced about 2 inches apart (I baked 12 cookies on the first sheet)
  6. Bake for about 10 to 13 minutes (short for super soft cookies, longer for more well-done cookies), or until edges have set and tops are just set, even if slightly undercooked, pale, and glossy in the center; don’t overbake. Cookies firm up as they cool.
  7. Immediately upon taking the baking sheet out of the oven, add about 5 additional chocolate chips per cookie. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for about 10 minutes before serving. I let them cool on the baking sheet and don’t use a rack. Cookies will keep airtight at room temperature for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 6 months. Alternatively, unbaked cookie dough can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 4 months, so you may consider baking only as many cookies as desired and save the remaining dough to be baked in the future when desired.

  1. I think a couple of these would be delightful with my morning coffee right now. No shame in wanting cookies for breakfast right? They are oatmeal after all!

  2. Oatmeal cookies are my husband’s fave. And yes …. we like our cookies NOW, not waiting hours for them. I made your snickerdoodles yesterday and I popped them in the freezer for 20 minutes, which seemed to have the same effect as 2 hours in the fridge … I had my daughter and her friend to feed and we didn’t want to wait. :)

  3. Why can’t quick oats be used? Does something happen to the cookies? I’ve used quick oats in previous oatmeal cookies without a problem. TIA

  4. These cookies look great, and I really appreciate that you made an eat-it-now recipe. Don’t get me wrong, my fav chocolate chip cookie recipe requires overnight chilling, but this cookie looks like a nice alternative to have at hand :)

  5. Oatmeal cookies that are loaded with chocolate chips are a big hit in our family. Best yet, if we can whip up the dough and bake right away. These look fabulous!

  6. i LOVE oatmeal cookies! especially loaded with chocolate chips! (not a raisin fan) – and not having to wait for them to chill? i’m sold!

  7. You are right when you say that this is an incredibly fast and easy recipe. Mix all the ingredients in one bowl and bake. It cant get any easier than that. Thanks for sharing!

  8. The nutrition info is missing how many cookies this yields. It says there are 12 servings but I wanted to know about how many cookies that makes for the whole batch as well as per serving

  9. We just made them and they’re fantastic! We made one substitution – we saw Ghiradelli makes caramel chips, so, thinking about Oatmeal Scotchies from days gone by, we decided to try them. They were very good that way too.

  10. Please clarify how many cookies batch will yield?

  11. OMG!!! These were exactly what I was looking for!! Chewy deliciousness. I added a couple of good sprinklings of cayenne pepper which hubby loved. Probably had more than one cup of chocolate chips as well but it was delicious. These are on my favorite list and rotation!!
