Chewy Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Chewy Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies, or the, “Bake-these-NOW-Cookies!!”. Yes, they ARE that good. A little history is in order: I, JulieC, wake up almost every morning craving oats. (I know, you wish you had my problem). Whether it’s hot with cinnamon, cold with Greek yogurt, or in a cookie form- I’m a oat-aholic. Given this unfortunate addiction of mine, I’m quite familiar with my good friend Oat. And this oatmeal cookie recipe, is for the ‘chewy cookie’ lover. They have a little crunch, but are super soft in the middle.

Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

With the holidays coming up, nothing says Christmas like food. At least for me anyway. It’s seriously come to the point where I don’t care about presents anymore. I just can’t wait to feast thrice in 24 hours. (Indeed, thrice). So this year, get on board the food train and help your family out with the cookie baking. These little guys are super easy. And the best part is, when they’re almost done baking just poke them with your finger and add some festive coloured sprinkles in the middle. That’s it, that’s all- call it a day. They won’t last any longer anyway 🙂

Yields: 24-30 cookies


  • 3/4 cup white flour
  • 1 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 (heaping) Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup margarine (or any butter alternative)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • Sprinkles (yay)


Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine brown and white sugar, margarine, and vegetable oil. Whisk until smooth. Then add egg and vanilla extract. Mix. In separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients. (Flour, oats, cocoa powder, salt, cinnamon, and baking soda). Transfer wet ingredients to the dry bowl, and form cookies on cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes. (Remove at 10 minutes to poke the centres, and add your coloured sprinkles!)


Music: Along with all things oats, i’m a little addicted to Florence and the Machine. Enjoy!

  3. It’s national baking cookies day and these are on my (long) to-do list today…just seems fitting with all this snow to make a good oatmeal chocolate chip cookie right?

    Ps: When I read this post and you began by saying that you always crave oats in the morning it made me reminisce about early mornings in Cape cod with you standing at the counter eating a pack of instant oats…ahhhh Cape.
