Oatmeal cookie bites

Today we’re mixing big chewy oats with lots of butter, brown sugar, a dash of cinnamon, and… glorious chocolate chips.

Use this perfect oatmeal cookie as the base for other add-ins such as raisins, dried cranberries, and nuts. Cinnamon and a touch of molasses add that little something extra. These are the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies!

How to Make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I especially love this recipe because the process is quick & simple– minimal dough chilling!

You will need the following


  • 75g wholemeal flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 75g oats
  • 50g brown sugar
  • 75g butter 
  • 1 tbsp honey  
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • chocolate drops as many as you like


  • Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line a baking tray with baking parchment.
  • Sift the flour into a bowl. Mix in the baking powder, porridge oats and sugar.
  • Melt the butter, syrup and milk in a small saucepan or in the microwave and stir.
  • Add to the dry ingredients. Mix until the liquid covers all the oat mixture and until well combined.
  • Spoon onto a baking tray and shape into rounds, leaving space between each biscuit as they will spread whilst cooking.
  • Bake for 10-15 mins, or until golden brown. Leave to cool for 5 mins before removing from tray.

These oatmeal chocolate chip cookies have a slightly crisp edge with a soft centre and enough chew that they won’t immediately break when you bend them. A “slow bend cookie” as I like to call them– and this is what makes a regular oatmeal cookie a really great oatmeal cookie. They’re also:

  • Super soft and hearty.
  • Supremely buttery and flavorful. Using more brown sugar than white helps guarantee a more flavorful base.
  • Super chewy thanks to old-fashioned oats. Thick old-fashioned whole rolled oats, not quick oats, guarantee a chewier cookie. Quick oats are thinner and more powdery; you don’t get the same texture.
  • Loaded with extra chocolate chips! I like to use both regular-size and mini chocolate chips. This guarantees more chocolate in every single bite. And for my fellow raisin lovers: try subbing in half raisins with the chocolate chips.

BEST COOKIE EVER!!! Better served with a cupa!
