Chewy Honey Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

AS AN AMAZON ASSOCIATE I EARN FROM QUALIFYING PURCHASES

I finally was able to create the perfectly chewy cookie. These chewy honey oatmeal chocolate chip cookies have the perfect chew in the center and just a slightly crispy edge. These are my favorite cookies, to date!

Prior to the snow and sleet we got yesterday that kept Jason and I inside the house all day, on Saturday, I went on a decorating spree. Not for our house, though, but for my office at work. Why, you ask? Well, numerous coworkers have made comments to me saying that my office looks so “impersonal” and “stale” and how I should “spice it up a little.” Honestly, I don’t want my office to be all homey. Yeah, I’m in it 9 hours a day, but I don’t want it to feel homey because then I’ll never want to leave – ha, just kidding. But, I guess I just don’t see the point. Work to me is work. It’s a place to work and to not have distractions. I probably see it differently than a lot of other people, cause clearly, my office is apparently the most boring in our division.

So ever since a few coworkers have brought this up, I’ve gotten all paranoid about it and I don’t want to seem like a boring person, so I went to Home Goods and Target on Saturday and bought a bunch of home decor to bring to the office. Well, not a bunch, but I bought some cute baskets, fake plants, cute post-it notes, pine cone/orb decorator things, and I’m bringing several photo frames from home into the office so I can have pictures of Jason and I and my family. I’m also probably going to canvas three of my most favorite food photos and bring those in too since I’m allowed to hang stuff on my wall. I’m pretty sure I’ll end up liking how it all turns out but I guess motivating myself to do it was the hard part. I just never thought of work as some place I had to decorate to make homey.

Let’s talk chewy honey oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. I got the inspiration to make these cookies after I had the most amazing honey oatmeal cookie from Chop’t, a salad restaurant we have in the city. It had the perfect softness and chew and I just had to try to recreate it. I was probably craving a good oatmeal cookie for weeks before I finally got into the kitchen to create them. I added my own spin by adding chocolate chips and also made them slightly crisp on the edges. You guys you have to make these. I know they just sound like regular ‘ole oatmeal cookies but they’re not! Regular oatmeal cookies may seem boring but there’s so much dimension to these honey oatmeal chocolate chip cookies than the typical ones.

Ingredients 

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups rolled oats, not quick cooking oats or instant oats
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flours, salt, baking powder, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer (or a large bowl using a hand mixer), cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs, one at a time, and then the egg yolk. Once incorporated, add the honey and vanilla extract and beat until combined.
  • Gently add half the flour mixture to the bowl, beat until partially incorporated, then add the remaining flour mixture.
  • Add the rolled oats to the bowl and mix until incorporated. At this point, if you're using a hand mixer, it might be too thick for the beaters to beat all of it so you'll have to transfer to hand mixing with a wooden spoon or spatula.
  • Gently fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula.
  • Using a large cookie scoop (or 4 tbsp. of dough), place cookie dough onto prepared baking sheets and bake for 18-20 minutes. The cookies will look soft and undone, but remove them between 18-20 minutes. They continue to cook as they cool and you do not want these to be overcooked as they will be too hard and crispy with little to no chew.
  • Let cool on cookie sheet for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Notes

If you do not have whole wheat flour, you can use all all-purpose flour, meaning you would use 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour.
If you're using a smaller cookie scoop (less than 4 tbsp. of dough), then you'll need to cook these for less amount of time (20 minutes would definitely be way too long); I would check at 10-12 minutes, depending on the size of your cookie scoop.

If I were to add either raisins or dried cranberries to this recipe, how much would you recommend, and would you reduce the amount of chocolate chips?

Yes, I'd probably do half and half. 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 1/2 cup dried fruit.

Hi Julie,

Would you be able to tell any substitute for eggs in this recipe?

Hi Deepa, unfortunately you have to use egg in this recipe. I don't know of any other substitution. Sorry!

Just made these, and as anotger commenter mentioned, they came out flat. My baking powder is fresh and as i was mixing everything it crossed my mind that 1/2 tspn of baking powder for a recipe of this volume is way too little. If you want to avoid flat cookies i'd definitely double that to 1 tspn. Besides that, the taste was delicious. they don't even need the chocolate chips, but i added them anyway :)

Y cant i usecooking oats ....plssss tell me.. i wanna make these asap nd i only have cooking oats..wat difference does it make

Julie

Hi Sara, it's cause they're different as far as texture and size. I only tested and made these with rolled oats and since the quick oats are smaller, I don't know how they'd react with the other ingredients and the ratio of the other ingredients. Hope that makes sense. You can definitely try though!
