There’s something about oatmeal cookies that makes them so desirable, so extremely irresistible. They are soft, chewy, somewhat nutty and so delicious no matter which one you choose to make: fruity ones – like Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies, Strawberry Oatmeal Cookies, Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies OR chocolatey ones – like these Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies.

All these oatmeal cookies are equally amazing in flavors and excellent HEALTHY sweet treat for all family to enjoy… including occasional visitors and house guests. All fancy them.

But what I personally really love about oatmeal cookies is its consistency. They are so dense and so rich. Right after the first few bites, you can feel how nutritious and filling they are. They are not some empty calorie treat. No way! They are a real meal packed in a form of a delicious chunky cookie. That’s why I just love them so much. In all variations and all flavor combinations. They are nutritious, sweet and satisfying.

In our house, there’s a cookie jar. Right there on a kitchen counter. It’s always filled with some sweet homemade cookie snack. My kiddo loves to have some snack after school. And my hubby likes to grab a cookie right before he hit the door in the morning. And these amazing and super delicious Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies are basically a staple in that jar. They are super easy to make and they are so healthful. Cookies filled with dark chocolate chunks… I mean… Who CAN resist them? They are the perfect nutritious treat so much better than any store-bought, sugary cookie.

But just the other day, while I was snacking these and watching Netflix, I realised I haven’t shared this recipe on my blog jet. It was time to change that.

You will be delighted by how easy this Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie recipe actually is. You’ll only need like few simple ingredients (you probably have in your pantry already) + 20 minutes (or less if you’re ambitious). That’s like SUPER helpful if you have a hungry family waiting for the healthy breakfast in the morning or kiddo who wants something nutritious to pack in his school lunchbox.

To make these incredible Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies I used all natural and HEALTHY ingredients – oats packed with proteins and fibers that are great for our digestion, weight loss, and heart health + whole grain flour rich in many nutrients.

Instead of butter, that people usually use for making cookies, I used organic virgin coconut oil. I always look to use only quality coconut oil when baking cookies for my family that’s why I read labels and look for raw certified organic, cold pressed – these are the best.

If you’re looking for quality coconut oil products you might want to check Indigo Herbs store. I really love them because they are so passionate about health and wellbeing – same as we healthy eaters are – so they offer only the highest quality products in their store. Seriously, check them OUT!

But what really makes these cookies special is the DARK CHOCOLATE. Bittersweet dark chocolate chunks are like pure pleasure hugged in a sweet cookie dough. An instant mood booster.

I used dark chocolate made of 80% cocoa which has a more intense bitter taste but gives so much more benefits than regular chocolate. Also I boosted up the overall cookie taste with some Ceylon cinnamon – a super spice known for its health benefits. Ceylon cinnamon gave the cookies warm and aromatic flavor which paired so nice with dark chocolate taste. Super yummy! As I said… irresistible.
