Tips For Making These Cookies

  • Chocolate not melting? No problem, mix in an additional tablespoon of coconut oil. This will help the chocolate melt without it seizing up.
  • A large spoon works. If you don’t have a cookie scoop, it’s fine to use a large spoon.
  • Play with the extracts. You can make all sorts of flavor combinations by swapping out the almond extract. Chocolate extract, mint extract, and caramel extract are just a few ideas to try.
  • Save on cleanup. One of the fastest ways to save time cleaning up is to use a crockpot liner. You can throw it out when you are done!

Variations For These Cookies

Play around with the ingredients to make several different combinations of flavors. Here are some of our favorites:

  • 2 cups Peanut Butter Chips + 2 cups White Chocolate Chips
  • 2 cups Mint Chocolate Chips + 2 cups Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 4 cups Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup each Milk chocolate, Dark, White, and Caramel Chips
  • Swap the chocolate chips for chopped gourmet chocolates or candy bars
  • Add in 1/2 cup of your favorite nuts. Pecans, walnuts, or peanuts are all great!

What Kind Of Oats Do I Need?

I prefer the texture of old fashioned rolled oats the best. They hold up well to being heated for 2-3 hours and don’t end up mushy. 

In a pinch, you could also use minute oats, but they may get a little soggier than what you like. I don’t recommend using steel-cut oats because the texture will be way off. 

How Long Do The Cookies Last?

They will last up to one week stored in an airtight container. They can be stored at room temperature or chilled in the fridge.

Can You Freeze Leftover Cookies?

Yes! For best results, flash freeze the cookies on a baking sheet. Put them in the freezer for 2 hours, then remove them and place them inside of a freezer safe container. This will keep them from sticking together. You can grab as many cookies as you need and thaw them on the counter before serving.
