Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect oatmeal cookie! A hint of crisp at the edge, chewy through the cookie and plenty of chocolate! What else could you want in a cookie?
Full Disclosure: Albertsons compensated me for developing this recipe with their products. That being said I have been an Albertsons shopper since I was a little girl and shop there on a regular basis. My promise to you is that I will only promote products and companies I love and use in my home.
Tomorrow Jack and I are braving the stores in search of a cookie jar! Our first guests of the holiday season arrive in less than two weeks and we are preparing by making cookies. And more cookies. And even more cookies!
These chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies will be on the list of course. I’m a texture girl so these cookies hit me in just the right spot. The edges are crisp or almost crisp but only right at the edge. Then the cookie is chewy and the chew is full of the nutty oatmeal texture. I love it! Load up with some good quality chocolate and you are set to go!
When you pick out chocolate chips for holiday baking make sure to read the ingredients. Most brands list sugar first and this means that you are paying for more sugar than chocolate. Not good. I picked up some O Organics® baking products to try for this post and was impressed with everything I got. The chocolate chips actually list chocolate as the first ingredient and they have great flavor. The vanilla and brown sugar were likewise delicious. These cookies use more brown sugar than white for a nice depth of flavor so a good quality sugar is important.
A few weeks ago Albertsons invited me down to the Bay Area to spend two days in their test kitchen. I had an amazing time learning from their chefs, designers like Debi Lilly, and so many of the amazing people that work for the company. I have to say, when I meet SO many people that have worked for a company more than 30 years and still love it I’m seriously impressed!
I thought I knew my local Albertsons brand pretty well but I learned a lot of new stuff while I was there. I came right home and headed down the street to check out my store with new eyes. I was impressed with how much of a one stop shop they are for holiday cooking, gifts, decorating and more! My biggest takeaway was that the floral section is amazing! The Albertsons team works with Debi Lilly to design beautiful and trendy collections of floral and home decor items at great prices each season. Be sure to check out the debi lilly design collection next time you are in the store.
Right now there are some beautiful debi lilly design velvet pumpkins in stores that captured my fancy and they have quite a few lovely arrangements and gift items that are perfect for last minute holiday runs. I actually asked my husband for one of their lovely air plants for Christmas and maybe just one of the succulent planters. (I have a feeling the” just one” thing is going to turn into a tribe but don’t tell Jonathan that!)
Did you know Albertsons offers grocery delivery?! While I was with the team, they sat me down to order a big cart of groceries for my family! I flew home late Wednesday night after eight long days on the road in New Orleans and then CA. Thursday morning the Albertsons truck had my groceries in my driveway with no effort. A sweet lady took them all the way to the kitchen and set them on the counter! I had never had groceries delivered before and it was an amazing experience! It was also not an expensive luxury like I had thought.
Between work and family and keeping my toddler fed, read to, learning, and laughing sometimes groceries feel like the last thing I want to take care of. Grocery delivery opened my eyes to the opportunity to save time – a resource I can’t get more of anywhere. If you are feeling stressed this holiday season consider taking advantage of their delivery service to take the fuss off! You can even have flowers delivered with your food… If that isn’t a win I don’t know what is???
Want to try grocery delivery for yourself? Albertsons offered me a special deal just for you guys! Between now and January 14th you can get $25 off + Free Delivery for any order of $100 or more! Just enter the code SEASONSEATINGS at checkout. Happy grocery delivery to you!
So cookies anyone? I bet if you have the groceries delivered you even have time to make them yourself!

Tools In This Post: In the last five years I’ve become quite attached to my SideSwipe attachment. It is my go to for making cookies instead of the paddle and usually means I don’t have to scrape the bowl down at all. If you are a regular baker this is a worthwhile tool to pick up.
Can’t get enough cookies? Don’t miss my super simple Perfect No Chill Sugar Cookies. They are a cinch to make and you can’t beat the flavor!
