I made a batch of these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Sea Salt Cookies for some friends who came over for lunch and one of them said to me, “you better put this recipe up on weelicious soon because I HAVE to have it!” So, here it is! My go-to delicious oatmeal cookie recipe that you will make all the time!


If I’m known amongst my friends and family for one specific recipe, it’s my Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Sea Salt Cookies. Yes, the controversial word “salt” is in the name of the recipe, but it’s only a teeny tiny bit and trust me when I say that it makes all the difference. Whenever I have my girlfriends over for dinner or need to bring something to a party, these cookies are the number one most requested recipe of mine. 


I know there’s an age old debate when it comes to oatmeal cookes — raisins or chocolate chips? While I have both raisin lovers and chocolate chip lovers in my house, my favorite is definitely chocolate chip. There’s just something about a bite of chocolate with a few flakes of sea salt that’s down right mouthwatering. Of course if you’re more of a oatmeal raisin person, you can head on over to my Oatmeal Raisin Cookies recipe and I won’t judge 😉 


These cookies come out of the oven so warm, soft and chocolatey you’ll be hard pressed to eat just one. If you are looking to enjoy just one delicious fresh cookie, you can freeze this dough and have it ready to go when you’re craving a small sweet treat! In fact, you can do that with lots of cookie recipes like these Chocolate Chip Cookies or if you didn’t freeze any dough, you can make this Microwave Chocolate Chip Sea Salt Cookie for ONE which is a game changer.

  3. Very yummy. Here are my suggestions: I wish I had dropped the dough by teaspoonfuls instead of tablespoonfuls because they are very rich and too big. Also I think a little cinnamon would add something to it. Would you add 1/2 tsp?
