Oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips – Classic chewy oatmeal cookies get a dose of chocolate and almonds in this old fashioned oatmeal cookie recipe!

I get a major craving for oatmeal cookies about once a season and these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies hit the spot. Soft and chewy, they’re packed full of chocolate with a bonus of almond meal in the batter for extra protein and a textural boost.

Oatmeal Cookies with Chocolate Chips

Besides TWO different kinds of chocolate chips, these oatmeal cookies have an unusual addition. I pulled some sliced almonds from the freezer and dumped them in my mini food processor. Pulsing the frozen nuts for a minute or two turned them into powdery almond flour or meal. Barely discernable except for a few flecks, which of course my family had to drill me about.

Nick was heading back to college and was game to sample one. Not usually a big oatmeal cookie fan, he enjoyed these enough to take some back to campus. They are chewy, soft and irresistible. I had to hide the remainder in my freezer to minimize temptation.

Healthier Cookies

I wouldn’t categorize these oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips as a health food, but this is a “healthier” oatmeal cookie recipe than my usual cookies. The oats and almond meal add fiber plus the eggs and almond meal both add protein. Just don’t eat a dozen at one sitting! Though you may be tempted.

  16. ohhhhh I love how chewy and tasty these cookies look! I want ’em I want ’em! pulverized almonds were an awesome addition!

  17. Lizzy,
    I haven’t made oatmeal cookies because the hubby isn’t a fan. I’ll have to try yours though. Pinned and yummed.

  18. Lizzy,
    I haven’t made oatmeal cookies because the hubby isn’t a fan. I’ll have to try yours though. Pinned and yummed.

  19. These cookies look amazing! What changes would I have to make if I omit the almond meal? My daughter is allergic to all nuts.

    • Oh, gosh, I’m not sure! Another nut meal wouldn’t work in your case. I did a quick search, but no definitive answer—one source thought coconut flour might work. Or maybe just more oats (you could grind them so you’d be mimicking the texture). Sorry I couldn’t be of more help!
