Chewy Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies


I am always looking for new and interesting cookie recipes, but somehow, I always revert to recipes with oatmeal, cocoa and of course, chocolate. But it's never the exact same recipe. Despite similar ingredients, I am always amazed to find how a slight twist or different proportion of ingredients yields a completely different cookie.

This cookie was chewy with the heartiness of the sunflower seeds, yet all the chocolately goodness of any other cookie. And the best part? I made a big batch and froze half. And let me tell you, they were just as delicious frozen!

Chewy Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
Makes about 3 1/2 dozen

1 cup Butter
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1/2 cup Milk
1 Egg
2 2/3 cup Quick Cooking Oats
1 cup Flour
1/2 cup Cocoa
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Sunflower Seeds
1/2 cup Chocolate Chunks

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Farenheit)..
Cream together butter and sugar. Beat in eggs and milk. Add all dry ingredients except sunflower seeds and chocolate chunks. Mix until combined. Gently stir in sunflower seeds and chocolate chunks.

Drop by tablespoon onto cookie sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes. Cool on wire rack.


  1. Oooo, those look good. For some reason in this country my cookies never ever turn out. They melt into pancakes all over the pan. I might give these a try, though! x x x Rachel

  2. This recipe looks so easy and of course it must be delicious.

    I will have to give this a try.

    Thanks for sharing,

  3. How can you go wrong with those three basic ingredients? I think you're on the right track and I like that you mix it up. Always good to keep your favorites but give them some variety.
