These delicious Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pecan Cookies are lace cookies with a crispy crunchy crust on the outside and chewy chocolaty texture on the inside.  Loaded with rolled oats and chocolate chips, and baked for 8 to 10 minutes, with additional chocolate drizzled on top makes them SO irresistible, you can’t stop eating them.

With no flour needed, Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pecan cookies always turn out delicately light and dead-on delicious!


A weight watchers cookie with just a few more points added….okay, maybe just an extra point. But that’s ok… right? 

These cookies are worth celebrating – in every way!

They are moist, soft, delicate, and melt-in-your-mouth.  So yummy, and with an extra bonus of chocolate drizzled on top, they’re even better making them decadent in every way – and in every bite! 

Made with all the fine ingredients this recipe calls for like brown sugar, rolled oats, chocolate chips, and chopped pecans, it’s no wonder why they are so popular.

My sister Liz loves making them and even calls these cookies her “devil-ish cookies!”  And because these cookies are a cinch to make, she bakes dozens at a time and freezes them in trays, so she can bring them whenever she visits friends.

Where ever she brings them… everyone raves about them.  They just can’t get enough of them!   They are that good.  Even addicting.

As you can see, I took these photos in a hurry, while the chocolate on top was still warm.  My family couldn’t wait to get their hands on them. 

And neither could I.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pecan Cookies make the perfect cookies to serve family and friends.   

These cookies are great to snack on in the afternoon with some tea or coffee.

So make sure that when you grab a cookie or two, have someone nearby to stop you.  Because with these cookies?  You CAN’T just have two! 

This is by far our favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe!



Here’s a Tip:  

This recipe calls for pecan nuts, but you may substitute any kind of nut you prefer….or leave them out completely.  Either way, they will taste just as great!
