Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream

This Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream is made with a cinnamon ice cream base. Add to that mini chocolate chips, oatmeal cookie pieces and a cinnamon swirl and you have a full-blown ice cream masterpiece. I’m in love.

I’m also in love with my new bowl for my KitchenAid stand mixer. We were shopping in Macy’s yesterday and I happened to find a new 6 quart bowl and I couldn’t pass it up! How awesome it will be to have 2 bowls!

I couldn’t find the price, but knew I’d buy it as long as it wasn’t more than $100.

Well, it rang up at $0.01! Whhhaaaaat?!? It apparently wasn’t supposed to be out, but since it was and their policy is that they can’t sell something for a penny, I got the bowl for $15! I’ll take it!

I did a happy dance right then and there. Two-bowl happiness! You know what else makes me happy dance? This ice cream.

I can’t even stand how good this it is. Talk about cinnamon-y! I could basically coat everything in cinnamon and sugar, so if ice cream could talk, this one would speak my language.

It’s actually inspired by an ice cream from our grocery store, Publix. We had Publix when we lived in Florida too and this was easily my favorite ice cream. I got it once when my dad was visiting because I knew he’d love it and he literally went about bought another carton for eat for the week. No joke, the best ice cream ever.

Why they stopped making it I will never know. I mean, I assume they stopped making it because I’ve looked for it all over and never found it. :(

But have no fear! I’ve finally made my own version!

I’ve been wanting to do it forever and finally got around to it. I’ve been promising the hubs, who also loved the original and he was thrilled when tasted it. Amazing. Might even be better than the Publix brand.

I came home last week to find dirty bowls that had been full of the ice cream all over the house. He’s not normally into eating ice cream all the time, but he couldn’t resist this one.

It’s smooth and creamy, but has some texture from the soft oatmeal cookies and some crunch from the mini chocolate chips.

I used fresh baked cookies from the bakery, but if you have a favorite oatmeal cookie, go with it.

And I definitely recommend the mini chocolate chips as opposed to full size. Much easier to bite into when frozen.

And as if it couldn’t get any better – you don’t need an ice cream machine! Score!!

Super easy, super flavorful and prefect for summer! Must. make.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream


8 oz cream cheese, softened
one 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
12 oz Cool Whip (OR homemade whipped cream)
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
3/4 cup oatmeal cookies, broken into pieces

Cinnamon swirl
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tbsp sugar


1. Combine cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk in a large bowl and mix until smooth.

3. Fold in Cool Whip until well combined.
4. Fold in mini chocolate chips and oatmeal cookies.
5. In a small bowl, combine corn syrup, cinnamon and sugar.
6. For layering the ice cream and cinnamon swirl, you'll need a large container for freezing the ice cream. Place 1/3 of the ice cream mixture into the container.
7. Add about 1/3 of the cinnamon mixture on top of the ice cream.
8. Repeat with the ice cream and cinnamon two more times, for a total of 3 layers of both ice cream and cinnamon swirl, ending with cinnamon swirl on top.

NOTE: To substitute homemade whipped cream for Cool Whip, beat 2 cups of heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form.

  12. Publix totally has the BEST ice cream ever! When I lived in Lakeland, I worked for Publix corporate over in the Deli Kitchen offices. We used to get free ice cream for the department from the Dairy Plant. Our break room freezer was full of it! Those were some of the best snack break times ever!

    This ice cream looks amazing, Lindsay! I could really go for a bowl of it right now. Pinned and sharing on FB. Have a great evening!

      I love making ice cream without the machine – you really don’t even notice a difference!

  17. YUM! Ben and Jerry’s used to make an oatmeal cookie ice cream that was my absolute favorite. I’ve been meaning to try my own version for a couple years now but keep forgetting! This sounds so close to it!

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      That sounds delicious – I’ve never had it. This does sound close though. You should give it a try – so good!

  21. What are the dimensions of the pan you used? I want to make sure the caramel swirl/ice cream layers have a good ratio. Thanks for the recipe and I’ll let you know how it turns out!

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      Hi Matthew! I used a 9 x 5 x 3 Kitchen Aid pan. I’d love to know how you like it! :)

  22. Lindsay,

    Your recipe is fantastic! As a couple previous users commented, Ben & Jerry’s had a very similar flavor that is now difficult (if not impossible) to find and their version was ridiculously good. Your recipe tasted nearly identical to the B&J flavor (at least insofar that I can remember) except for the addition of mini-chocolate chips which makes yours, naturally, better!

    After making the ice cream, I was trying to figure out how to use the remaining heavy whipping cream (I made my own whip cream) and corn syrup because I rarely buy either and I especially didn’t want the cream to go bad. Turns out homemade caramels are fairly easy to make and use both ingredients so if other users find themselves in a similar position, that’s my recommendation.

    Finally, I’d recommend crumbling much more cookie than the recipe suggests. The cookie is the best part of the ice cream (alongside the cinnamon) and I wish I would have doubled (and possibly tripled) the amount. Here’s a picture of my final product: http://oi61.tinypic.com/qqd65v.jpg

    Thanks again!

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      Thank you so much Matthew! I’m so glad you like it! I think the addition of more cookie pieces sounds great. And I love the caramels suggestion, I’ll have to try that myself. :)

  23. Son of a… Crap. My husband and I gave up ice cream this year (because we are cray cray and like to challenge ourselves with weird things) and this is hurting me a lot. I should have never clicked… When January 1st rolls around, I MAYYYY have to dive into this recipe.
