These oatmeal cookies were a part of the holiday dessert platter I brought to my friend’s party on the weekend.

I wanted to make a different variety of cookies and treats for the platter since you never know what people like and I wanted to make sure I covered all the flavor bases.

One of my favorite cookie is a chewy and thick oatmeal cookie with just a slightly crisp edge.

I can never say no to an oatmeal cookie these days so I figured I should include one for the cookie platter.

I still had an opened jar of Biscoff in my pantry so I added some into the batter along with some white chocolate chips and dried black currants to make these a little bit more festive.

Feel free to add raisins or cranberries if you don’t have black currants but I have to say that the currants are what made these cookies even more special.

They aren’t as sweet and are slightly softer than raisins but not as tart as cranberries.  I find that they gave a wonderful balance in these cookies.

When I brought these to the party, even the non-oatmeal cookie fans were surprised with how good these were and kept going back for seconds.

I think the Biscoff and white chocolate chips really enhanced the flavor of these cookies.

The dried black currants and mix of quick and old fashioned oats gave these cookies that thick texture and sweet chewy flavor.

Be sure to add these jazzed up oatmeal cookies to your holiday cookie platter, they are sure to impress with their wholesome looks.

Enjoy!

  17. Hi Kelly,

    Very nice cookie… However, I’m sad whenever I see Biscoff-related treats… I missed Biscoff and I know that I can never get any of them in Australia!!! Sob sob!

    Zoe

    • Thanks so much Zoe. Aaw, I’m sorry they don’t have Biscoff in Australia, it’s hard to find in Canada too so I usually buy it when I go the US since we live really close to the border. Hopefully, they will start selling it in Australia one day.

  18. You had me at biscoff. What a great combination. I haven’t tried much biscoff and oatmeal, so these cookies are going on the list. Thank you!

  19. They look delicious! What a great combo!
