I have been seeing this recipe circulate through email for many years and I was just curious to give it a try since my step daughter loves Famous Amos cookies. They actually turned out quite close to the real thing! Super yummy and a hit with everyone.

Chocolate Chips Cookies - Copycat "Famous Amos" Recipe

Makes 110 cookies


1 cup butter (227 g)
2 cups multi-purpose flour (240g)
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup granulated sugar (200g), I used 100g
1 cups brown sugar (200g), I used 100g
2 ½ cups blended oatmeal (200g), measure oatmeal and blend in blender to a fine powder
2 cups chocolate chips (350g)
½ tsp. salt
9 oz. Chocolate bar (grated) – I did not used in this recipe
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking powder
1 ½ cups chopped nuts (125g), your choice, I used almond flakes.
1 tsp. vanilla

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 C. Line the trays with non-stick baking sheet.
  2.  Cream butter and both sugars together in an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla; mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and soda. Add chocolate chips, Cadbury bar and nuts.
  4. Roll into balls and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet. Press the dough lightly with the palm of your hand to flatten just a bit.
  5. Bake for 13 – 15 minutes.
  6. Cool completely before keep in the airtight container. They will get crunchier as they cool.

  1. I tried the recipe today and I liked it because it is high fiber, crunchy and easy to bite through. I will cut down the white sugar by another 1/4 cup (50g) to suit my taste.

  2. Hi, may i know what kind of chocolate chips do you use?

    1. Hi, Semi sweet Chocolate Sweet. These cookies were made for kids. You can cut down sugar if you think it is too much sugar.

      Cheers :)
