Chocolate Chip Whole Wheat Oatmeal Cookies

Chocolate Chip Whole Wheat Oatmeal Cookies at The Happy Housewife

These turned out pretty good. The next time I make them I think I will try substituting the brown sugar with natural sugar and see how they turn out. With 3 cups of oats and 2 cups of whole wheat flour these cookies are filling and full of fiber.

Chocolate Chip Whole Wheat Oatmeal Cookies


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour (I use whole wheat)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups oats
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl mix butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla.
  3. Add baking soda, salt, oats and flour.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Spoon onto a cookie sheet or stone and bake for about 10 minutes.
  6. Take out of the oven just before they look done and let them sit on the cookie sheet for another 2 minutes.



  1. Bookmarked! 🙂 You will be seeing this recipe pop up again….

  2. Wow these look great! Nice way to sneak in the Whole Grains! Clever!

  3. I have to get back into the habit of using only whole wheat. just can’t get away from the yummy white for my cookies…hee hee, but since I have LOTS of wheat berries, and know how good it is for you….that should be my answer. 🙂

  4. Yum! I’ll definitely have to try this recipe next time. Lately, I have been using “Sugar in the Raw” (I think it’s turbinado sugar) to replace the white sugar in my choco chip cookie recipe. I know it’s not as healthy as sucanat or rapadura, but it’s gotta be better than plain white sugar, right? Anyway, the sugar crystals are really big and I think the choco chip cookies taste even better.

  5. This may be just the thing to turn around the way this day has started….

  6. That sounds so good! I’ve wanted a whole-wheat cookie recipe but I just wasn’t sure how it would turn out. I’ll definitely have to try this one!

  7. I do not need a new recipe for chocolate chip cookies – especially ones that use ww flour. Now I will be making more cookies 🙂

  8. Oh my goodness…YUM! Thanks for another amazing recipe. I am going to try these soooooon!

  9. I promptly printed out the recipe and made these cookies this afternoon. I added walnuts, raisins, and dried cranberries with the chocolate chips to equal just over 1 cup of additions and used a reduced amount of turbinado sugar. All the kids agree that I must add this recipe to the family book. Thanks.

  10. I’m over from Blissfully Domestic. Those look delish!!!

  11. Yum! Those sound good to me!

  12. I’ve converted most of my quick bread and muffin recipes to use whole wheat flour, but haven’t tried cookies yet. I’ll have to give these a try soon!

  13. Your kids have got it made! You are always whipping up something yummy over there. Can’t wait to see the castle cake!

  14. What yummy looking cookies! Great recipe!

  15. THese sound delish!! My children don’t even notice most of the time when I use whole wheat for cookies, muffins, and such. I do try to use whole wheat pastry flour which is lighter. 😀

  16. I always use whole wheat flour in my baking. My kids don’t even notice 🙂 Everything comes out just as yummy.

  17. Sounds like a great recipe with all the good stuff! Thanks.

  18. Anything to make a treat a wee bit healthier is good in my book!


  19. I’ve never made a wheat cookie, this sounds good!it has to be if it has chocolate in it lol

  20. made these today… delicious. Mine look a lot different than the ones you have in the photo above, but they taste wonderful. I made one batch with raisins and one with mini chocolate chips.

  21. My son and I are going to give these a shot today. I will be grinding the wheat and using natural sugar so I will let you know how they turn out.

    I just made these delicious cookies! Oh my goodness. Thank you so much for posting the recipe. I’m gonna make sure to pass on your blog to my girlfriends so they can hook up these awesome cookies!

  23. I just made these for a Father’s Day get-together at my church, and they are DELICIOUS!!! This will definitely be a go-to item for me in the future. Thanks for posting!

  24. Just made these tonight…. YUM doesn’t even come close to describing!! Awesome!

  25. These cookies taste wonderful! I just made a batch, with only one cup of chocolate chips (which was PLENTY for my taste). The batter tasted great and molded easily to the shape I wanted. I found that the cookies don’t “melt” in the oven and retain the shape the dough has when you put it in the oven. I rolled the dough in to balls and little two-bite cookies came out of the oven about 12 minutes later. Chewy and crumbly at the same time (really!). I will definitely recommend this recipe. 🙂

  26. I substituted 1/2 C unsweetened applesauce for 1/2 C butter and 1/3 C agave syrup for the 1 c sugar and added 1tsp baking powder. They were perfect. Even my wife who doesn’t care for wheat flour liked them.

  27. How many cookies does this recipe make?
