Potbelly’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


Although Potbelly may be best known for its sandwiches and acoustic music nights, I’ll always love them most for their oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. These cookies lack the biggest offender often found in anything oatmeal-the raisin (sorry raisin fans!), plus they’ve got chocolate chips and the perfect chewy/crunchy ratio. Recipe below the pictures. Enjoy!!





Potbelly’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups quick oats
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream margarine and sugars. Add in egg, one at a time, beating after every addition. Mix in vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine oats, flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix together then slowly add into the butter mixture. Add about a cup at a time, mix, then add another cup. Do this until it is all blended together. Mix in chocolate chips.
  4. Form dough into medium size balls, place on cookie sheet covered with a silpat, and bake for about 10 minutes.
