When I came across this recipe over at Barbara Bakes I just had to try it.

The recipe promises rich, chewy and thick cookies and what’s not to love about that?

Barbara starts her post about the chewy chocolate chip cookies with an interesting discussion.

Most people have a very definite preference when it comes to chocolate chip biscuits.

People seem to either like them chewy and thick or thin and crunchy.

I have to say that I think both are delightful and I’d happily devour either biscuit as long as it tastes great.

These cookies are so delicious I baked two batches in two days the first time I made them.

No I didn’t eat them all I gave quite a few away as a gift.

They’re very easy to make (no dough rolling or shaping) and only take 6 – 8 minutes to cook so you can be eating freshly baked cookies within about 15 minutes of finishing reading this post.

One thing to note with these cookies is that they won’t look completely cooked when they first come out of the oven and will be quite soft in the middle.

As long as the outside is golden they’re done.

Don’t be tempted to leave them in ‘just a bit longer,’ I promise they’ll firm up as they cool.

Another tip – if you want them to be extra thick, chill the dough for 30 minutes before spooning it out onto the trays to bake.

Yield: 50 cookies


  • 2 cups plain AP flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (could just use flour as the original recipe suggests)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (250g) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (my addition)
  • 1 bag dark chocolate chips (I used about 150g/5.5oz)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans (optional - I left these out)


  1. Preheat the oven to 185C(365F) fan-forced.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, use the paddle attachment to beat the butter and sugar together until smooth and creamy.
  3. Remove the bowl from the stand and stir in the eggs and vanilla.
  4. Add the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon and stir until just combined.
  5. Tip in the chocolate chips and stir them through.
  6. Spoon heaped-teaspoon-sized blobs onto a lined baking tray leaving about 4cm between blobs.
  7. Bake the cookies for 6-8 minutes and swap the trays half way through if you are using more than one tray at a time.
  8. Let them cool on the trays until they are firm enough to move then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
