Chocolate Chip Honey Oatmeal Cookies

Chocolate Chip Honey Oatmeal Cookies Recipes l

You may have seen on Instagram that we ran a race on Saturday. It was cold, and I had a cold. And, when you run in the cold with a cold, your nose runs as fast as you do! Pretty sure I was the only runner with a handful of tissues in each hand. . . It made running interesting for both me and the people watching me! Somehow I managed to beat my goal by over a minute. Not sure how that happened since it felt like I was blowing my nose every half mile!

When we got back from the race, I was freezing and all I could think about was comfort food. The first place I thought to turn to was a collection of my grandma’s recipes. I love looking through her recipes because they contain lots of “pinches,” “dashes,” and missing ingredients and steps. It’s a lot like how I used to write down recipes! As soon as I saw this recipe, I knew I wanted to make it for a few different reasons. First, they were simply labeled “Chocolate chips with honey.” I knew there had to be more to the recipe than just two ingredients. Secondly, it contained oatmeal, and oatmeal cookies are the best. Lastly, I have never made cookies where the main sweetener is honey.

The fact that they were in my grandma’s collection of recipes didn’t hurt either! I ended up cutting out all of the white sugar that was listed because I don’t like super sweet cookies and I added some vanilla. I also gave a measurement to “dash.” :) They ended up being soft, nutty cookies with a hint of honey that made each bite intricately sweet, not overpoweringly sweet. A perfect post-run (or anytime) cookie!

  26. Oatmeal cookies is one of my favorites by far!!

  27. Jessica, you’re some kind of superwoman! I can’t believe you had the energy to run a marathon AND bake cookies with a cold! Looks like you did a great job with both though… these cookies look irresistible!

  28. wow this list of ingredients sounds sooo good…hope they helped get rid of your cold.

  29. I love that your recipes are so thoughtful, Jessica! The fact that honey is your main sweetener intrigues me and makes these cookies so unique. I can only imagine the pairing of brown sugar and honey–so sweet and so chewy!

  30. I love these cookies so much!! Depending on what brands you use these are only around 68 calories, I also used margarine instead of butter. Love this recipe, thank you!

  31. I tied to bake these cookies but the result was awful!
    The cookies were almost malted so I decided to bake theme a lil more and i burned them. I guess because I used the gluten free all purpose baking flour. So sad!

  32. Great recipe! I omitted the brown sugar altogether and added some toasted pecans. Yum.

  33. I have to tell you that this recipe is amazing. I am always looking for low sugar dessert recipes and this is a go-to for me. Thank you!!!!
