Chef's Tip
  • You can store your chocolate oat cookies in an airtight container for a couple of days – if they last that long!
  • There’s no reason you can’t make these scrumptious cookies with white or milk chocolate instead if you’d rather, why not try both and see which you prefer?!
  • We recommend using whole oats to really achieve that chewy, thick texture that’s truly irresistible.
