This Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cut-Out Cookie Recipe is a healthy alternative to sugar cookies that tastes amazing! I made them for my best friend’s wedding and everyone was obsessed!


For the Cookies

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups Old Fashioned Quaker Oats (cut up with knife or chopped with food processor – I’ve tried both and don’t see a huge difference as long of you don’t demolish the oats in the food processor)
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

For the Royal Icing

  • 3 tbsp meringue powder
  • 4 cups (1 lb) powdered sugar
  • 58 tbsp water to desired consistency



1. Beat butter and sugar together.
2. Add egg and mix thoroughly.
3. Add flour, vanilla cinnamon, baking powder and oats. Mix well.
4. Add chocolate chips.
5. Roll out dough on WELL FLOURED surface. It’s best if the dough stays chilled. I took small amounts out of the refrigerator at a time while I used it.
6. Cut out cookies in desired shape.
7. Place on parchment paper on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degreed for 7-9 minutes or until edges are golden.
8. Makes 4 dozen cookies, depending on size of cookie of course.

Royal Icing

1. Whisk meringue powder and sugar together.
2. Add 5 or 6 tbsp of water. Mix on high for 7 – 10 minutes or until icing loses it’s sheen.
3. Add more water to get correct consistency.
* For the icing around the edges, I wouldn’t add much more water. I use a thicker icing to outline the cookie.
* For the flood icing, I’d add about a teaspoon at a time. You know it’s right when you can drag a knife/spatula through the icing and the line in the icing disappears within 5-6 seconds. You could leave it a little thicker, like 8-10 seconds, but this is the consistency I prefer to work with.
