  • Stand Mixer


  • 1 cup unsalted butter room temperture (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light muscovado sugar packed
  • 2 eggs large
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate, chopped into large chunks (12 ounces)

Cinnamon Cornflake Crunch

  • 2 cups cornflakes
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 4 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • In a medium bowl, shift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine butter and both sugars. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy.
  • Reduce speed to low and add eggs one at a time beating well after each addition. Add in vanilla.
  • Add flour and mix until mostly combined.  Some flour streaks in dough are ok.
  • Add oatmeal and cornflake crunch. Mix on low until just combined being careful not to overmix dough. Overmixing the dough will result in dense cookies. Dough will be thick. Stir in chopped chocolate.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour to overnight
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Scoop dough into balls (about 2 ½ tablespoons). If you have a food scale, dough should equal 1.7 ounces. Place 6 balls of dough onto the lined baking sheet, about two inches apart.
  • Bake one sheet at a time for 9-12 minutes until the edges are golden brown (mine were done at 11 minutes).  Cookies are better when they are slightly underbaked.  They should look slightly gooey in the center and will harden as they cool.
  • Remove from the oven and let cookies sit on baking sheet for 3-5 minutes before transferring cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.

Cinnamon Cornflake Crunch

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place cornflakes into a medium size bowl and crush by hand until they are about half their size.
  • Add cinnamon, salt, and brown sugar to cornflakes and mix to combine.
  • Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Pour butter over cornflake mixture and stir to combine.
  • Pour the cornflake mixture onto a prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown and toasty
  • Allow the cornflake crunch to cool completely before using.
