Crispy Oatmeal Chocolate Sandwich Cookies {aka Ikea Chocolate Oat Crisps!} | Find the recipe on NotEnoughCinnamon.com #dessert #glutenfree

We arrived in Canada with exactly 6 suitcases – mostly clothes and other essentials – and no furniture. So what did we do when we needed to fill our new empty apartment? We went to Ikea, of course! But not just once. Oh no, once isn’t fun enough! <rolling my eyes>.

I’ve lost count at this point but I think we’ve been there…. at least four times? I mean, I like Ikea but please, please, don’t ask me to go there again anytime soon because I’ve had ENOUGH, thank you very much!

These cookies however? Mmm never enough. I am semi-ashamed to admit it but I totally used them as an excuse to convince Solal to be dragged there once again. After all, I really needed an armchair for my office/studio and he can totally be bribed with food. No surprise we got married him and I.

Anyways, buy these fantastic cookies before your shopping session and I can guarantee you’ll enjoy your time at Ikea much more.

But what happens when you don’t want to go there just for the cookies? Call Marie to the rescue! I initially wanted to surprise Solal with these but given that he now works from home too and his “office” is right in front of the kitchen island (plus the fact that he has a chocolate detector)…Well, surprises are not really an option anymore, but he loved them nonetheless.

According to him – and I second this opinion – they taste exactly like the Ikea ones! Except they’re not loaded with nasties. I wouldn’t push it and call them healthy either (ahem) but at least you know exactly what goes in them. And your tummy will too, trust me. Nom nom nom.

Enjoy! 🙂

Crispy Oatmeal Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Cal: 210 - Protein: 4g - Fat: 11.5g - Carbs: 23g - Fiber: 1.5g - Sugar: 11.7g
WW Old Points: 5 pts - Points+: 6 pts

Ingredients

  • 3 oz - 85 g - 6 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats (not the quick ones)
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour (you can also use a gluten free flour mix)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 200 g - 7 oz dark or semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (used refined coconut oil to avoid a coconut taste)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F/200C. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large pot, melt butter over low heat. Remove from the heat and mix in oats, flour, baking powder, vanilla and salt. In another bowl, whisk egg and sugar until pale. Stir in the oat mixture.
  3. Drop small balls of batter, one teaspoonful each, on the prepared baking. Leave room for them to spread a bit. Make sure they are all about the same size if you won't them to turn out pretty (and it'll be easier to sandwich them).
  4. Bake 6-7 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Remove from the oven, and let them cool directly on the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining batter if needed.
  5. Melt chocolate and coconut oil in the microwave or in a double-broiler. Let it cool.
  6. When cookies are cooled, dip the flat side of one cookie in chocolate, dip another cookie and sandwich them together. Place on a baking sheet or serving plate. Repeat with remaining cookies. The cookies are ready to be eaten when chocolate has set.

  1. I’m very excited to find this recipe as I absolutely love the Ikea cookies. I always buy a box when we go and vow to eat just one a day, although I’m not sure how they then disappear within a week 😉 Clearly I have no willpower.
    I’m so keen to make these, but I’m in England and we don’t use cups… Any chance you could put the ingredients weight in grams (as well as the cup measurement)?

    1. Oh I really don’t blame you, Ikea cookies are such a test to our willpower!! You’re in luck because my sister desperately wanted to make them but she’s French and doesn’t use cups either so I converted everything 🙂 Keep in mind that it’s approximate and that I haven’t tried them using grams. It should work just fine but I can’t guarantee 🙂
