Chocolate Chunk Oat Cookies-these cookies are made with three kinds of oats and big chocolate chunks. Grab a glass of milk and get dunking!
This post is in partnership with The Quaker Oats Company, but our opinions are our own.
I often get asked what my favorite cookie is, but I can never decide. I am terrible at making decisions and I have too many favorites. We have over 200 cookie recipes on our site and it is just too hard to narrow it down. I love them all!
I do know that I LOVE oatmeal cookies. They are always at the top of my list. I am currently loving Chocolate Chunk Oat Cookies. They are the ultimate oatmeal cookie!
These cookies are made with three kinds of oatmeal! First, I blend Quaker Old Fashioned Oats in the blender until they are a flour-like powder. I love using blended oats because they add a nutty flavor to the cookies.
For a hearty texture, I also add more Quaker Old Fashioned Oats to the dough and Quaker’s Quick 3-minute Steel Cut Oats. These cookies have a lot of whole grain and oatmeal goodness going on! To sweeten things up, I like to stir in big chocolate chunks. They are the perfect finishing touch to my oaty cookies!
I am sure the kiddos would love to open up their lunchbox and find a Chocolate Chunk Oat Cookie. You can also welcome them home with a plate of warm cookies and a glass of cold milk. A great after school snack!
Get out your oats and make these Chocolate Chunk Oat Cookies. They are at the top of my cookie list and I think you will like them too!
Chocolate Chunk Oat Cookies
- 1 ¼ cups Quaker Old Fashioned Oats divided
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ cup unsalted butter at room temperature
- ¾ cup light brown sugar
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ cup Quaker 3 Minute Steel Cut Oats
- 1 cup chocolate chunks
- 1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpat baking mats and set aside.
- 2. In a blender, blend 1 cup of the old fashioned oats until powdery. In a large bowl, whisk together the blended oats, white whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
- 3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and both sugars until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
- 4. With the mixer on low, slowly add the flour mixture. Stir in the remaining ¼ cup old fashioned oats, steel cut oats, and chocolate chunks.
- 5. Drop cookie dough, about 2 tablespoons of dough, 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool for 2 minutes before carefully transferring the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Note-if you don't have chocolate chunks, you can use chocolate chips. The cookies will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
