Frog Commissary Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

by on May 21, 2009 · 12 comments

I tried these upon the recommendation of Nicole over at Baking Bites. They were very good – definitely up there as far as oatmeal chocolate chip cookies go. And since posting this recipe, I’ve had a lot people tell me they are the best.

Total time
A recipe that is similar to the one used by Frog Commissary
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 48
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (unbleached)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 cups oats, old fashion or quick (not instant)
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (12-oz.)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Cream the butter and the sugars with an electric mixer until light. Beat in the egg, then the milk and the vanilla extract.
  3. Stir the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt together and gradually stir the flour mixture into the sugar mixture until it’s incorporated. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips.
  4. Drop dough, making 1 inch rounds, onto the cookie sheet, placing about 1 1/2 inches apart so they have room to spread.
  5. Bake on center rack for 10-13 minutes, until golden brown at the edges and light golden at the center.
  6. Cool on baking sheet for at least 1-2 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.
These were recommended by my friend Nicole at Baking BItes. She makes a lot of cookies and thinks these are among the best.

There’s something so comforting about a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie. These look fantastic. I’m definitely saving this recipe for future use!

I made these the other weekend. They’re definitely good if you like a slightly crispy cookie.

My mom and I have made these from the Commissary cookbook since I was little. I’m so glad you posted the recipe as I don’t have the book anymore.

We always cut the sugar down by at least 1/4 cup, and cookies are even better, less crispy, more chewy.

These cookies are wonderful! I have been told by several people that they are the best cookies they’ve ever had…thank you for posting!!! (Sometimes I add a bit of unsweetened coconut which adds a nice flavor, too.) Great site!

These are the ONLY oatmeal chocolate chip cookies I will make. I use 100% whole wheat flour and they are FANTASTIC!! They turn out great every time and I don’t worry if my kids want to have 2 or 3. I consider them somewhat healthy with the oatmeal and 100% whole wheat flour (I also use organic butter!). Try it!!

Thanks for the tips! It’s interesting how the brand or type (such as organic) butter can really change a cookie.

I have this on my bookmark bar. Best oatmeal cookies around!

Chantelle October 18, 2012 at 4:30 pm

This is on my bookmarks bar, too! Made these recently for the teens at our church and they were VERY good. The best I’ve ever had :-) thanks for the recipe!
