Servings 36 Cookies


  • 1 cup unsalted butter 2 sticks
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups of quick-cook oats

  • Preheat your oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with either silicon baking mats or parchment paper
  • In your mixing bowl, beat together butter, and white and brown sugar
  • Add in eggs and vanilla extract and beat until fluffy (scraping down the sides of the bowl throughout)
  • In a separate bowl, combine your dry ingredients: flour, oats, vanilla pudding, salt, and baking soda
  • Slowly add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients in thirds, stirring after each third until completely combined
  • Add in your chocolate chips and mix until just combined (do not over mix)

  • Bake at 375 for 11-12 minutes.
  • Once out of the oven, leave the cookies on your baking sheet for about 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack for about 10 minutes before eating.
  • Enjoy!
