Best Ever Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Download PDF


I’ve promised many friends that I’d share this recipe, and finally I’ve gotten around to doing it. It’s probably the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe ever. Not only are these cookies soft, chewy and delicious, but they also contain a healthy dose of heart-healthy oats that are rich in soluble fibre. This recipe also contains much less butter or margarine than other cookie recipes do. I often make these cookies (along with these amazing muffins) for friends who have just had new babies and are needing fast, quick (higher fibre) snacks. If you’re a Mom, you know that the best gift ever is homemade meals or baking, am I right?

No matter what the reason for making these cookies, you will not be disappointed. They are so easy and quick that you can have a batch or two done by the time nap time is over (and you might even be able to sneak a quick nap in yourself!).

    Thanks for sharing this, Sarah. They were a hit in our house and were surprisingly filling – we didn’t feel the usual need to eat the whole cookie jar to feel satisfied! I also love that the recipe makes a ton of cookies so I was able to stash some away in the freezer. I’ll be test driving your muffin recipe next….
