We definitely perfected these oatmeal chocolate cookies! This cookie has a wonderful chewy texture from the oats and is packed with chocolate. This is definitely the cookie to make when you need a chocolate fix! I recommend eating them warm out of the oven as you will get warm melted chocolate in every bite. 

Ella’s favorite job is definitely taste tester, especially when there’s chocolate. She said “Mom this cookie is perfect don’t change a thing,” followed by “Did you write the recipe down?” Lol! I am definitely known to be the mad scientist in the kitchen. I sometimes get so involved in my recipe development that I forget to write the recipe down. This actually happens! I call it my creative flow. Either way, I wrote it down and have a delicious oatmeal chocolate cookie waiting for you to enjoy!

Oatmeal Chocolate Cookie Variations

  • Make These Cookies Vegan: You can make these oatmeal chocolate cookies vegan! To do this, substitute the egg for a chia egg. To make a chia egg, combine 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and 3 tablespoons of water. Then, let it sit for 10-15 minutes or until it thickens and has a gel-like consistency. After that, it is ready to be added to the recipe. Or, you can make a flax egg by combining 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal and 3 tablespoons of water. Either way, one chia egg or flax egg is equivalent to the one regular egg in this recipe.
