  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon molasses
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 1/8 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips


  • In a medium bowl whisk the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt together. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter until smooth, about 1 minute. Add the brown sugar and granulated sugar and beat on medium speed until well creamed, about 2-3 minutes. 
  • Add the eggs, vanilla, and molasses to the creamed butter and sugar. Beat on medium-high speed until well combined. Scrape down the bowl with a spatula as needed so that everything is evenly incorporated. 
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Beat on low speed until everything is combined. 
  • Add the oats and chocolate chips. Mix until evenly combined. Dough will be thick. 
  • Cover and chill the dough for at least 1 hour. 
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.
  • Using a 3 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop balls of dough onto the parchment paper, leaving 2 inches between each cookie. 
  • Bake cookies for 9-13 minutes or until lightly browned on the sides. Take note, the centers will still look fairly soft. (In my oven, my cookies are done at 10 minutes). 
  • Remove cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Cookies can be stored in an airtight container for 5 days, if they last that long :) 



*You can use a 2 Tablespoon cookie scoop as well, but just know that the cookies won't need to bake for as long.
