Disappointing, the oatmeal didn't have enough time to soften, so the texture didn't seem like a proper cookie. And the chocolate kept sticking to the waffle iron, i had to take out the plate and clean it, then let it steam dry, slowing the process.
Although this is a really cute idea, the cookies aren't great. Not sweet enough, kinda dough-y, bland tasting. Don't waste your time or ingredients. They looked so cute in the magazine, so I was really disappointed. I may try this again with a different oatmeal cookie recipe, but not this one. Can't recommend.
While the flavor was okay, I found it a complete pain to make these. Most of them alternately burned or fell apart. Very few of them turned out well. Perhaps it's my waffle iron? Instead of throwing the remaining batter out, I added a bit more flour and baked them in the oven.
I made this recipe in my Antique sunbeam mixer. I did use salted butter and quick oats. I have a newer waffle iron and used the cooking spray and they fell apart. I then did it without cooking spray and they came out perfect. My kids said great! Husband said dry. And they only took about 45 seconds once I got my iron up to temp. Made the whole batch using a 1 tbs spoon in under 15 minutes. Worked great since I'm waiting on my new stove since my oven went out.
Yummy. No problems getting them out even when the chocolate is melting all over the waffle iron. I cut the chocolate chips by half and added a cup of fresh blueberries.... Really good. Another good recipe open to variations.
These were wonderful! Very quick and easy, and tasted great too. I was finished with everything, including cleanup, in under 1/2 an hour, and I liked the chewy chocolaty flavor.
While not as tasty as a real oatmeal cookie, these little bites are quick, easy and fun. This recipe will be added to the list of things I cook with my 5-yr-old granddaughter. I used a Belgian waffle iron. A regular waffle iron might be better.
Very tasty and easy! What a fun variation! They didn't crumble or stick at all. I found using a set of small ice tongs worked beautifully for removing the cookies from the iron.
This was delicious! It would have been a bit better with less chocolate chips (maybe 1/2 cup instead of a full cup) - they melted all over the iron and made some of the cookies fall apart. It took awhile to figure out the right technique to get them out (I found a fork and spatula worked best) but once that was sorted out they made a very tasty snack.
