  • Food Processor or High Powered Blender
  • Stand or hand-held mixer


  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup fancy molasses*
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips


  • Add the oats to a food processor or high powered blender and pulse a few times to break them down**. You want to have a variety of sizes, but you do not want all the oats to turn to flour.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the pulsed oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder, cornstarch, salt, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, or using a large bowl and hand-held mixer, beat the butter for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the granulated and brown sugars and beat until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl a few times as you go.
  • Add vanilla, eggs and molasses and beat on medium-high until well incorporated, about 1 minute.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and pulse the mixer until it has just barely combined.
  • Mix in the chocolate chips on low speed or by hand.
  • Cover the bowl in plastic and place in the fridge to chill for at least 1 hr.***
  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Line baking sheets with parchment and set aside.
  • Scoop the cookie dough, using a 1.5 Tbsp scoop, and place on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for about 12 minutes. The cookies will still look slightly under-baked and soft in the center.
  • Let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooking rack to cook completely.
  • Store in an airtight container on the counter for 3-4 days. To freeze, place in a zip too bag or other airtight container. Freeze for up to 3-months.


*Spray your measure cup with cooking spray, or lightly coat with oil before measuring the molasses. This will help the molasses release from the cup without sticking.
**You want a variety of texture in the oats (some whole, some broken down, some turned to flour). This will help create a nice chewy cookie. If you don't have a food processor or blender, you can also chop the oats with a knife.
***Chilling the dough is recommended but not necessary. Chilling the dough will help prevent this wet sticky dough from spreading too much while baking.
