Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Waffle Cookies

In April, I was remembering some delicious chocolate waffle cookies that a neighbor had once given us so I looked for a recipe online. I found these chocolate chip waffle cookies at Fine Cooking and thought we'd try these. It is a fun change to normal cookies and is so fast to bake a few. They are delicious all warm and melty, but not quite as good the next day. Give 'em a try!
Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Waffle Cookies
1/2 c. unsalted butter, melted
1/2 c. plus 2 T. firmly packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 t. vanilla
3/4 c. flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1 ½ c. old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
1 c. semisweet chocolate chips

Heat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.

In a large bowl, whisk the butter and brown sugar until smooth. Whisk in the eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips.

Coat the grids of the waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray. Use a tablespoon or small ice cream scoop to portion out a cookie onto each waffle square. Close the iron and cook until set and beginning to brown, 1-1/2 to 3 minutes, depending on the heat of your waffle iron. Use a thin metal spatula to transfer the cooked cookies to a wire rack and repeat with the remaining dough, coating the grids with spray as necessary.


  1. Those look so delicious!
    I have never tried any of these, but they would be so fun to eat!
    Thanks for the great idea.

  2. Oh those look so yummy! I will have to make some for my family.

  3. Looks like a family home evening treat to me!

  4. Those look pretty good. My one twin has been bugging me since Christmas to get a waffle maker. LOL, I told him to ask for one for Christmas or his birthday. He hasn't so I guess he doesn't want waffle that bad.

  5. I remember seeing some like those (but they were all chocolate) at Christmastime and wanting to make them! Mmm.

  6. I am collecting treat recipes to wow all my new friends at teatime in England! This sounds SO fun and yummy! THANK YOU.

  7. Valerie,
    They look so good! I've made chocolate waffle cookies but never the oatmeal choc chip! I'll have to try this recipe.

  8. How fun! They look like just waffles, not cookies; I think I will try those for a treat for tomorrow's staff meeting.

  9. Thanks for this recipe! They remind me of a similar recipe made with cocoa and then cooked on the waffle iron. But this one looks better. I am going to make these with my granddaughters!
