Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Waffle Cookies

Yes, you read the title of this post correct…. this recipe popped up in my Facebook updates page, compliments of Fine Cooking. I was curious and craving something sweet, so here you go. A half batch of these cookies, even cooking them one at a time, took only 15 minutes to make. The texture did remind me a lot of waffles. There were a little crunchier than normal oatmeal cookies, but received rave reviews from friends.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Waffle Cookies

Found on Fine Cooking, from the book Dessert Express by Lauren Chattman

Makes 1-2 dozen cookies


  • 1/2 c. (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 c. plus 2 Tbs. firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1-1/2 c. old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
  • 1 c. semisweet chocolate chips
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Heat waffle iron. With 5 heating settings, mine was set to 3.5.

Whisk together butter and brown sugar until smooth. Whisk in eggs and vanilla. Add flour, baking soda, and salt, whisking together.

Switch to a rubber spatula and stir in oats and chocolate chips.

Spray waffle iron with cooking spray. Using a tablespoon or small ice cream scoop, drop dough, one cookie at a time, onto waffle iron. Cook for 1-1/2 – 3 minutes, depending on the heat of the waffle iron. At my setting, it took about 2 minutes until the light went out. The cookies were nicely browned.

Using a fork and thin spatula, transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.

Continue baking cookies until finished, reapplying the cooking spray as needed.

With a half a batch and a small ice cream scoop, I got 8-9 cookies.
