Waffle Cookies - Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Walnut

Walter was put to work this past Saturday! He churned out some crispy and light EVOO waffles, delicious oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, grilled cheese, and even fried an egg. I am absolutely impressed with how versatile waffle makers are.

The EVOO waffles turned out just as tasty as my previous blogged Macadamia Oil waffles - light, crispy, and fluffy. I simply replaced macadamia oil with EVOO, used organic coconut palm sugar instead of granulated, and added 1 tbsp flax seed for added nutritional value. You won't be able to stay away from these waffles once you have a taste.

The waffle cookies were a fun experiment, as were the grilled cheese and egg. The chocolate chips that were directly in contact with the waffle maker did burn, but the taste weren't affected much. The burnt parts gave the cookies a smoky caramelized note.

Waffle Cookies - Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Walnut
recipe adapted from 12 Tomatoes
makes 10 cookies

1/4 cup (57g) unsalted butter
1/4 cup (55g) organic coconut palm sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
3/8 cup (48g) all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp fine sea salt
3/4 cup (60g) old fashioned oats
1/4 cup (45g) semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup (30g) chopped walnuts
Step 2: Add wet into dry.

Step 3: Fold in oats, chocolate chips, and nuts.
Step 4.
Cool and enjoy!
1. In large bowl, combine melted butter and brown sugar, then whisk in egg and vanilla until smooth.
2. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to wet ingredients in increments until well combined.
3. Fold in oats, chocolate chips, and nuts to cookie batter until just incorporated.
4. Preheat waffle iron at high heat, grease with nonstick spray, and place a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough into each quadrant of waffle iron.
5. Cook for about 2 minutes depending on waffle iron's heat setting, or until golden brown and cooked through.
6. Transfer cookies to wire rack and let cool. Repeat with remaining dough, re-greasing iron as needed.

These cookies were slightly crisp when fresh and got softer overtime. Either way, they were yummy, and not to mention, super quick to make for cookie craving emergencies. The clean up for the burnt residues were a bit annoying though.

Taste: 5 stars out of 5
Buttery and not too sweet.
Texture: 4.5 stars out of 5
The oatmeal in these cookies gave them a chewy bite, and walnuts provided the perfect crunch surprise.

And in case you were wondering how my waffled egg turned out..

It worked!
