Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Waffle Cookies

November 16, 2011 No Comments

Chocolate chip oatmeal waffle cookies (recipe link here) were a great way to demonstrate a small appliance.  If I were to demonstrate waffles it would be a whole big deal with syrup, butter, and orange juice with lots of dishes to do.  These cookies demonstrated how to use a waffle iron and gave students a nice snack to enjoy.

I had to search a bit for a healthy-ish recipe… Martha Stewart’s version used 18 TBSP of butter!  Students also benefited from the whole-grain oatmeal in this recipe.

I was able to make these cookies with items I had on hand.  The flour and oatmeal are provided through the lunch program and I had stocked up on chocolate chips and butter the last time they were on sale.  This made for a zero-cost snack.

The objective of this lesson was do demonstrate a small appliance, so waffle cookies work great.

The waffle cookies were a big hit.  Many students planned to dig out their dusty waffle irons at home to share the recipe with their families.  I will be on the lookout for a waffle iron for my own home!
