Print Recipe


  • 2 1/2 cups large flake oatmeal (not quick oats)
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter (unsalted, softened)
  • 1 1/3 cups brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cup sea salt caramel chips
  • 3 tsp espresso powder


  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, oatmeal, baking soda, salt and espresso powder. Whisk and set aside.
  • In a large bowl using a mixer on medium-high (either stand or hand-held), beat the butter till creamy. 
  • Add the sugar to the butter and continue to beat until fluffy. This will take about 2-3 minutes. **NOTE** Be sure to scrape down the bowl a few times.
  • Add the vanilla, and eggs (1 at a time). Continue to beat until blended.
  • Change the speed to low on the mixer. Gradually add the flour/oatmeal mixture 1/3 at a time. 
  • Add the chocolate and caramel chips and mix in by hand with a spatula.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap. CHILL for at least 1 hour. I like to place my dough in the freezer. If you are placing it in the fridge, chill for at least 2 hours (or overnight).

To Bake:

  • Preheat oven to 325ºF. Line your baking sheets with parchment or silicone mats to prevent cookies from sticking.
  • Using a cookie scoop, drop dough onto the baking sheet about 2 inches apart. My cookie scoop size is 1 7/8 inches.
  • Flatten cookies slightly with the palm of your hand.
  • Bake until edges are golden, but the center is still SLIGHTLY underbaked. 
    This will be about 11-13 minutes depending on your oven. Cookies will firm up as they cool.
  • Remove from oven, and let rest on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes, then move to racks to cool completely. 
  • ENJOY!!
