Chocolate Oat Cookie

Ok, so everyone has heard of the Neiman-Marcus Cookie story... so I tried to make it one day and it's really good! I made some changes (because that's what I do) and here's the end product... a cookie my friends cannot seem to get enough of and that I've been asked to make far too many times!


  • 2 cups butter

  • 4 cups plain flour

  • 2 cups caster sugar

  • 2 cups brown sugar

  • 4 eggs

  • 1 cup rolled oats, processed well

  • 1 cup rolled oats

  • 1 cup desicatted coconut

  • 2 cups chocolate chips (I use dark and milk)

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2C grated chocolate

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 2 tsp baking soda

  • 2 tsp vanilla

  • 1C extra dark chocolate for topping


  • 1.

    Beat the butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until well combined. Add vanilla and mix through.

  • 2.

    Place sifted flour, oats, coconut, chocolate, salt baking powder and soda together in a bowl.

  • 3.

    Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until well combined. You should have a fairly dry mixture that should hold when pressed together.

  • 4.

    Roll into balls (about a tablespoon size) and place in the fridge to set for about 30 mins.

  • 5.

    Preheat the oven to 180c.

  • 6.

    Place cookie balls on a baking sheet about 2.5cm apart. Place into oven for 5 mins.

  • 7.

    Pull out of the oven and use a fork to press them down, making a round cookie shape with really nice indentations. Cook for a further 10-12mins or until golden brown.

  • 8.

    Continue until all cookies are cooked. Allow to cool before serving (otherwise they are very chewy).

  • 9.

    Melt the extra dark chocolate and pipe sparingly over the cookie... nice contrast!
