So excited to share this fun cookie recipe with you today! They are so good! I turned them into the ultimate ice cream sandwich, but these cookies are a triumph on their own.
They’re so ridiculously easy. Just 5 ingredients and NO measuring!! You just dump everything into the bowl and mix it up. They are super buttery and SO soft and chewy. They melt in your mouth!! Love these fun and easy shortcut cookies.
Check out your 5 simple ingredients. A yellow cake mix + instant flavored oatmeal make these the easiest cookies ever with a seriously yummy flavor. You can use any flavor oatmeal you want to send these cookies over the top!! I used classic Maple & Brown Sugar here, but how good would Apple Cinnamon oatmeal be in the fall?? Omg I just had an idea. You could even use caramel bits instead of chocolate chips!! Or both!! I totally have to make those now. You could also make them with peaches and cream oatmeal, strawberry, banana… The options are endless! Blueberry Oatmeal with a yellow cake mix would be like blueberry muffin cookies!!
Start by melting your butter. You can quickly zap it in the microwave if you’re in a hurry, but I always like to brown my butter to give it a little extra flavor boost. Check out my Secret Ingredient Cookies for a step-by-step guide on browning butter.
Immediately pour the melted butter into a large mixing bowl and add your cake mix…
Two envelopes of instant flavored oatmeal…
And two eggs. Beat on low speed until just combined.
Stir in one bag of chocolate chips. I like using mini chocolate chips for these cookies, but feel free to use any kind you like. :)
Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes until the edges are just starting to turn golden brown. You’ll have the chewiest, gooiest, puffiest cookie ever.
Now if you want to take these cookies over the top, turn them into the ultimate ice cream sandwich by placing a scoop of ice cream on one cookie, top with a second cookie, and cover in more mini chocolate chips.
Ridiculous. Make these cookies ASAP!!! I want to hear all about your flavor combinations.
