Oatmeal chocolate cookies

These oatmeal chocolate cookies is wheat I have been looking for in a long while. They are excellent with a tall cup of milk and my kids are taking them to school as a snack, since they are healthy and feeling with the oats.

This is the first time I have had such a combination with these oatmeal chocolate cookies. While the cookies weren’t too crunchy because of the lack of so much sugar, they were still superb. I hate when I bite into a cookie or a cake and all you can taste is sugar.

The oatmeal chocolate cookies texture is light and soft. Not a crunchy type of cookie. I like to make cookies like these once in a while so I hope if you get to try them, you like them.

I pretty much have a few favorite cookies that I keep making over and over. They are just too good to go on for a while without having them.

Anyhow, there are only 4 weeks left for fall to begin. I feel like time is just flying by. I think the older I get the faster it goes. Let’s face it, I am getting old…well older :-) it is fine…it is part of life, so I am OK.

On another note, I have the best giveaway waiting for you. I am super excited because this giveaway is a really nice powerful piece of equipment. Most likely I will have this offer in the next week so stay tuned.

I am starting to get back to my routine after spending 2 months away this summer. My schedule this fall is going to be one of the craziest ever so I hope I can keep up posting great recipes for you guys.

Until my next post, that hopefully it will not be too long from today…



I didn’t have much shredded coconut while making the cookies. I wish I have had more. If you like to add more be my guest. I think the cookies will be even better with it.

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 16 cookies

Total Time: 20 minutes max!



Preheat oven to 350 F. Line two cookie sheets with unbleached parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, with a wire whisk, whisk together the egg, olive oil, coconut oil and vanilla. Add the remainder of the ingredients and with a spatula mix until the ingredients are well incorporated.
With a medium cookie scoop, place batter onto the cookie sheets leaving some room in between the cookies as they will expand while they bake. I kind of flatten them with the cookies scoop just a little bit.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Leave cookies for a couple of minutes in the cookie sheets before transferring them to cookie wire racks to cool completely.

  1. Love that you’ve added coconut in it for the extra crunch. These make for some good breakfast too. Hope you had a great vacation and looking forward to more great recipes.

  2. Awesome recipe! I’ll be trying it out this weekend, but your recipe says to use egg, but it’s not in the ingredients list! Can you specify how many eggs you use so I can determine how much egg-substitute to use?


  3. I adore oatmeal cookies…and these look so inviting with all the healthy elements!

  4. Hi Miryam,

    I have tried a few of your recipes and they are fantastic. I’m thinking of trying this too but might not be able to get shredded coconut. What can I substitute this with?

    And can I just use all olive oil?


  5. These cookies look super! I love that they are not as bad for you as other cookies but still taste great!

  6. I love the coconut here –yum!

  7. Oh wow..these look so good! I wonder if I can use my coconut sugar I just bought in these…

  8. Yum! These look fantastic! I’ve turned into such a cookie fan lately and oatmeal is always my fave!!!

  9. I love that you used whole wheat flour for these fabulous cookies, Miryam! They look so scrumptious. A good, soft oatmeal cookie is one of my favorite and you made it even better with the chocolate! Great recipe.

  10. Yum! Love oatmeal cookies plus chocolate. These look healthy and thats nice to eat a healthy cookie.
    Age is just a number Miryam, with our healthy eating hopefully we can knock off ten years each. Haha.

  11. These look great. I love oatmeal cookies.

  12. I remember time felt like it was crawling when I was in school, but the older I get, time seems to go faster and faster….how is that possible?? Lol! These cookies sound lovely! I especially love the coconut in them!

  13. Hi Miryam! It’s my first time making oatmeal cookies and I only have regular rolled oats instead of quick ones. Do you think they would turn out the same? Would I have to bake a little longer?

    Also, just wanted to say keep up the good work! Every time I make something from your blog, it turns out to be a huge hit! :)

    • I think they should be fine. Since there isn’t a large amount of oats I anticipate that the cookie will turn out OK. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I am glad you like the recipes :-)

  14. Can I use all purpose flour instead of pastry flour.because I don’t have
