Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Waffle Cookies

Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are the perfect treats for kids and adults alike. And we’ll let you in on a little secret – “baking” cookie dough in a waffle iron takes a fraction of the time a normal oven does. This not only gets the cookies into our bellies sooner, but it makes for a fast and fun recipe to whip up with little ones. After a couple of minutes in the iron we were left with warm and golden morsels of chocolate chip goodness. So the next time you need a sweet treat fast, keep the oven off and turn on that waffle iron!

  1. Turn on waffle iron and let heat up. Grease with nonstick spray.
  2. In a large bowl combine melted butter and brown sugar, then whisk in eggs and vanilla until smooth.
  3. In a separate bowl sift together flour, baking soda, and salt, then add to wet ingredients in increments until well combined.
  4. Fold in oats and chocolate chips to cookie batter until just incorporated.
