I absolutely love chocolate chip cookies. And this recipe is adapted from a family favorite. But don’t be fooled! This not your Grandma’s one bowl chocolate chip cookie recipe.

This easy one bowl chocolate chip cookie recipe is a family favorite and doubles nicely if you need to make it for a larger crowd or gift giving.

When it comes to basic cooking skills, I’m a firm believer that making cookies should be up there. I’m not talking about elaborately decorated cookies but the kind that you can snack on any time of day.

Now, I realize, some may balk at the idea of using one bowl. But, I find it easier in the long run.

Best One Bowl Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe


All of the classic chocolate chip cookie ingredients:

  • Flour
  • White sugar
  • brown sugar
  • Chocolate chips
  • Baking soda
  • …. and bacon! Yes, bacon.

The wet ingredients:

  • Two eggs
  • two sticks of butter (melted)
  • Vanilla

In the oven and waiting to get in my belly. Two sheets, and spaced about 1/2 inch apart for growth. I want to say that I got 16 on each sheet. Or you can make larger cookies, it’s really up to you.

On the first day, maybe an hour after cooling, these cookies are a bit crispy on the edges and soft in the middle. After cooling longer, they turn more crunchy over all. If you like the softer bite, warm in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds.
