  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature 216g
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, tightly packed 200g
  • 1/2 cup sugar 100g
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup (real maple syrup or pancake syrup would work)
  • 1 3/4 cup + 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour 230g
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch cornflour in UK
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon optional
  • 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats 285g
  • 2 cups chocolate chips I prefer semisweet or dark, but milk or even white chocolate chips would work, depending on your preference


  • Beat butter in the bowl of a stand mixer (or using an electric beater) for about 30 seconds. Add sugars and beat until light and fluffy (pause to scrape down sides and bottom of bowl, if needed).
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating until combined.
  • Stir in vanilla extract and maple syrup.  
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  • Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture until completely combined. Be sure to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl so ingredients are well-mixed.
  • Gradually stir in oats until completely combined and then stir in chocolate chips.
  • Chill dough in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350F (175C) and prepare cookie sheets by lining with parchment paper.
  • Drop cookie by rounded 2-3 Tablespoon-sized ball onto parchment paper, spacing at least 2" apart.
  • Bake on 350F (175C) for 12-13 (edges should be slightly browned, centers may still be slightly underbaked but shouldn't be raw, they'll bake completely as they cool).
  • Allow cookies to cool for 5-10 minutes on cookie sheet before transferring to cooling rack to cool completely.
