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. Wow. It looks like you’re having a great time! I’ve always wanted to travel to España, but I will one day. The view of the hiking looks gorgeous. I’ll be sure to check it out whenever I go visit Spain (probably in 5 years? lol). I’m usually scared of heights, so, I’ll see how that goes! Maybe my excitement will overcome my fears.
    And, I’ve never tried gazpacho before. I’ll have to try it.

    I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip in Spain. =)

    • You will love this area. If you come to Spain you have to try your best to make it to the North. Gazpacho is very easy to make and extremely healthy so I suggest you try it soon, when I get back to the US I am going to make it at least once a week. Thanks. I am trying to relax and enjoy myself :-)

  2. Wow, what an incredible hike that must have been! That is a breathtaking side of Spain that I’ve never seen but hope to one day. I love this gorgeous gazpacho inspired by your home country! Thanks for sharing and enjoy the rest of your time there, Miryam!

  3. Thanks Georgia. I hope you get to go one day. It is truly an amazing place!

  4. Ahhhhhkkk!!!! This post just makes me hurt for spain so much!!!! I fell in LOVE with barcelona and have been desperatly trying to get a job there- stupid work visa seems to be the biggest problem. Anyways, as a vegetarian i enjoyed a lot of gazpacho there :)
    Do you have a recipe for the less traditional white gazpacho with almonds?I only had it once but would love to recreate it this summer.
    I agree with the extra garlic note ;)

  5. ahhh.. i’m so jealous. i love Spain! PIctures are gorgeous… 7 hours of just hiking, I’d be so tired in 1 hour. Just absorb it all and take it all in. Have fun!

  6. Oh my how gorgeous!! I’m so glad to hear you’re having such a good time.

    It is getting to be HOT here in the US so this gazpacho is definitely exactly what I need!

  7. The hike looks so beautiful. Such great photos!

  8. It looks absolutely stunning there!! And those hiking trails, sheesh!! I’m glad you’re enjoying your trip!! ;)

  9. Hey Myriam are you from Spain? Is the northern part of Spain the most beautiful part of the country? I am planning to go with my girlfriend she’s French but I told her I always wanted to visit Spain as well, maybe this summer.

    • I think it is very beautiful, however, there are many beautiful parts of Spain. South Spain, La costa Brava, which is the East side of Spain, Madrid etc is very beautiful. Topography is very different depending where you are in Spain. Up north looks like you are in Sweden, South like you are in Greece, East like you are in Italy…so different. I hope this helps a little.

  10. How long would this keep in the fridge?
