  • Yield: 24
  • Total Time: 55 Minutes


  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons flaky sea salt (such as Maldon)
  • ¾ cup (1½ sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
How to Make It
  1. Combine the oats, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon of the salt in a medium bowl; set aside.
  2. Beat the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually add the flour mixture. Mix to combine. Stir in the chocolate.
  3. Drop tablespoonfuls of the dough 2 inches apart onto 2 parchment-lined baking sheets. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 teaspoon of salt.
  4. Bake at 375°F, rotating once, until lightly brown around the edges, about 10 to 12 minutes. Cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
