Doubletree Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Total Time: 44 minutes
  • Yield: 30 1x


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (two sticks), softened
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (any kind you have)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Pulse the oats in a blender or food processor. In a bowl, combine the oats, flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Whisk together and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, add the butter and sugars. Cream until light in color, scraping the bowl as needed. Add the eggs, vanilla, and lemon juice.
  3. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and stir by hand until almost combined. Add the walnuts and chocolate chips and stir to finish mixing the dough. Don't overmix!
  4. Let the dough chill for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight.
  5. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350F and scoop the dough onto prepared baking sheets 2 inches apart. Bake for 13-15 minutes until done to your liking. Let cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes, then remove to wire racks to finish cooling.
  6. Eat 5 at once. Enjoy!


  • 1. I left the lemon juice out of this recipe and it was just fine.
  • 2. The original recipe calls for 1 cup walnuts, but I use 1/2 instead and like that ratio a little better!
  • 3. For a little extra health, swap one cup of flour for whole wheat flour - it works great!
