Chocolate chip cookies are a true classic, so you might think that it’s impossible to improve them even further. Of course, you’d be wrong. Case in point: this recipe that has you bake them in your waffle iron. Not only do they cook up way faster than in your oven (and that’s a good enough reason to try them right there), but they even look cooler with their waffle pattern. Win-win. Now, go make them!
Waffle iron chocolate chip oatmeal cookies
WHAT YOU NEED
- 1 ½ cups old fashioned oats
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- ¾ cup flour
- ½ cup + 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
- ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
WHAT YOU DO
- Turn on waffle iron and let heat up. Grease with nonstick spray.
- In a large bowl combine melted butter and brown sugar, then whisk in eggs and vanilla until smooth.
- In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt, then add to wet ingredients in increments until well combined.
- Fold in oats and chocolate chips to cookie batter until just incorporated.
- Place a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough into each quadrant of your waffle iron. Close and let cook for about 2 minutes (time will vary depending on waffle iron’s temperature and your preference), or until golden brown and cooked through.
- Transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool. Repeat with remaining dough, re-spraying griddle as needed.
- Serve warm and enjoy!
