Oatmeal and Chocolate Cookies

Healthy chocolate oatmeal cookies - Lilie Bakery

Soft to perfection, these Oatmeal and chocolate cookies are a healthy snack option! A quick recipe to prepare, with simple ingredients. We love their little vanilla taste and their big chocolate chips...

What you'll love about these oatmeal and chocolate cookies

  • flavors : chocolate chip cookies as we like them, with a little taste of oatmeal in addition.
  • texture : they stay soft thanks to oat flakes and brown sugar.
  • difficulty level : very simple to prepare (the children will love it). You just need to allow 1 hour of refrigeration before baking these oatmeal and chocolate cookies, it is necessary for a good final texture.

Ingredient details

  • oatmeal : for these cookies I only use whole flakes (which can be with or without gluten). This helps add more texture to cookies than chopped flakes.
  • sugars : I mix white powdered sugar for a light crispiness and brown sugar for softness. These cookies are relatively low in sugar.
  • dark chocolate chips : I take big chocolate chips, you can find them quite easily in the supermarket pastry department. You can also chop your own pastry chocolate into a bar.

How to make oatmeal and chocolate cookies?

  1. Beat together the butter and sugars then add the egg and vanilla.
  2. Separately, mix the dry ingredients and add them to the dough.
  3. Finish with oatmeal and chocolate chips
  4. Refrigerate to easily mold the oatmeal and chocolate cookie balls.
  5. We place on a baking sheet, spacing well and bake (2 batches are necessary for the 16 cookies).

My tips for successful oatmeal cookies

  • take ingredients at room temperature : it is very important to have a well softened butter and an egg which is not cold to ensure an optimal texture.
  • do not overcook : we would tend to want to extend the cooking time but this is a mistake because they also continue to cook on the plate outside the oven.
  • to have round cookies : take a mini pastry ring, place it above the cookie and make circles, this will firm up its sides and give it a nice shape.

How to properly store your cookies?

Once made, I advise you to place your oatmeal and chocolate cookies in an airtight box to keep them soft. So they keep about 4-5 days at room temperature.

Oatmeal and Chocolate Cookies

Soft and gourmet cookies with oatmeal and chocolate chips. A very easy recipe to prepare to taste it!
Prep time15 minutes
Cook time13 minutes
Total28 minutes
Recipe type: Dessert, Snack
Cuisine: American, French
Keyword: cookies
Yield: 16 cookies


  • 115 g softened butter
  • 65 g light brown sugar
  • 80 g white powdered sugar
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • 2 tsp natural vanilla extract
  • 125 g all-purpose flour
  • 125 g whole oat flakes
  • 0,5 tsp baking soda
  • 0,5 tsp salt
  • 120 g large dark chocolate chips


  • In a container, beat the soft butter, the brown sugar and the white powdered sugar. The mixture should be very creamy. Add egg and vanilla. Beat again.
  • Separately, mix the flour, baking soda and salt. Fold into the batter with a spatula, being careful not to over mix (just enough).
  • Finish by adding the oat flakes and large chocolate chips (keep 20g of chips for decoration).
  • Cover the container and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 180° traditional heat. Using an ice cream scoop or your hands, form balls of cookie dough then place them on the baking sheet covered with parchment paper, spacing them well (you will need to make 2 batches of 8 cookies)
  • Crush the balls of dough a little then add a few more nuggets on top.
  • Bake for about 12 minutes (depending on your oven). The edges should be lightly browned, the center not overcooked. Leave to cool on a plate, they will harden as they cool, while remaining soft in the middle.
  • Tip: when they come out of the oven, if your cookies do not have a very round shape, take a mini pastry circle, place it above the cookie and make circles, this will firm up its sides and give it a nice round shape. .

    Hello, I just made this wonderful recipe.
    To be honest I never allowed myself to make cookies, if I ate them I bought them. And to be honest, it wasn't really my thing.
    But this recipe… it is to die for. These are the best cookies I have eaten in my entire life. And you even reconciled me with them.
    Thank you for these wonderful cookies!!!

    Hello !
    This recipe is magical, the best cookies I have ever made!
    I also make them plain for my son who is not a big fan of chocolate and they are to die for! THANKS
    Do you think we can modify the recipe to obtain salty cookies?
    Thank you for your reply !

      Thank you very much Marina for your message! I'm really glad you like them. To answer you, no salty version of this recipe would be too different because the sugar is what gives the cookies all their softness, if you remove it, it will be very (too) dry and crumbly. See you soon :)

    I didn't have enough butter, so I added a large tablespoon of peanut butter for extra (and for taste too) and it worked very, very well! Thanks for the recipe, I'm traveling and they're the perfect snack for when we're going on a trek for a few days.

      Hello Myrtille, to answer you, I don't know how special pastry stevia works. Maybe the dosages are not the same? In any case you need to do a test. See you soon :)
