Fell in love with Ikea’s Crispy Oatmeal Cookies? Don’t worry, this recipe for Crispy Oatmeal Chocolate Sandwich Cookies might be even better than the popular Ikea Cookies!

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!

Ikea’s chocolate covered crispy oatmeal cookies, however? Mmm, I will never get enough of those.

I am semi-ashamed to admit it but I totally used these divine crispy oatmeal cookies as an excuse to convince Solal to be dragged to Ikea 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 crispy oatmeal cookies before your shopping session and I can guarantee you’ll enjoy your time at Ikea much more.

These Crispy Oatmeal Chocolate Sandwich Cookies taste just like the ones from IKEA!

But what happens when you don’t want to go to Ikea just for their famous oatmeal cookies? Call Marie to the rescue! I initially wanted to surprise Solal with a batch of these chocolate-dipped sandwich cookies.

However, 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 these crispy oatmeal cookies nonetheless.

According to him – and I second this opinion – they taste exactly like the ones we ate at Ikea! Except they’re not loaded with nasties.

I wouldn’t push it and call these cookies healthy, but at least you know exactly what goes in them. And your tummy will too, trust me. Nom nom nom.

Enjoy! 🙂

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
Servings 16 sandwich cookies
Calories 191 kcal


  • 3 oz unsalted butter 85 g, 6 tbsps
  • 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
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 200 g dark or semi-sweet chocolate 7 oz, chopped
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil used refined coconut oil to avoid a coconut taste


  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 want 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 into 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 🙂
      – 85 g unsalted butter
      – 135 g rolled oats (not the quick ones)
      – 1 tsp baking powder
      – 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
      – a pinch of salt
      – 130 g 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)

  2. Haha, these cookies always keep my husband in an ok mood when I drag him through the homeware department 🙂 I should probably have a secret stash of them somewhere in my pantry to soften the odd blow! This recipe is obviously GOLD!

  3. These are so delicious; you did a fantastic adaptation of the cookies from Ikea. Yours are much better; that’s coming from my husband & he’s very picky & a big foodie 😉
    Happy Holidays!

  4. I’ve always loved the Ikea cookies but the last thing I need is a case of them! I made these and they were so easy and fast! Best of all the crunch was perfect, chocolate-perfect. The unexpected plus was the oat-y flavor was so much better than ikea’s! Thank you! A new favorite!

  5. Hi Rebecca
    Could the coconut oil be replaced with olive oil?
    I hope so as I can’t wait to make these.
    Thank you.

    1. Hi there. You can definitely try it. I have seen ganache recipes using olive oil so it might work. Let me know how it turns out. Cheers.

  6. Absolutely perfect! Both a individual crisps and as the chocolate sandwich. They came out exactly as if we were buying them from Ikea just better…fresh and cheaper. Awesome job. 5 Gold Stars!

  7. Hi Marie,😀
    I just made your AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS COOKIES! I’m a family of 4. My husband, myself and 2 grown boys. The entire batch of cookies are gone within 1 hour of making these! My entire family absolutely loved the cookies.
    Thank you so much for posting your recipe!
    The recipe is so simple and quick and foolproof!

    1. Thank you so much for this stellar review Carr, I’m super happy to read your whole family loved these cookies!

  8. Hi! I would love to try these cookies at home but I’m from Europe.. Could you maybe convert the recipe into grams? Thank you and lots of love!

    1. Hey Natalie,
      Here it is:
      – 85 g unsalted butter
      – 135 g rolled oats not the quick ones
      – 23 g all-purpose flour
      – 1 tsp baking powder
      – 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
      – 1 pinch salt
      – 150 g sugar
      – 1 egg
      – 200 g dark or semi-sweet chocolate
      – 1 tbsp coconut oil

  9. I have never been to IKEA but the cookies intrigued me. They are sooo easy to make. I did bake mine 20 minutes . I sandwiched two with the dark chocolate and put them in a sealed box into the freezer for 24 hours. Once I brought them out…..gonezo! Yum yum yum!

  10. These cookies are so banging, I make them for my parents and they love them. Mum even asked me yesterday to make them soon so here I am again! Great recipe and so glad we don’t have to trek to Ikea for them!!

  11. Wow. I made these yesterday, and I was skeptical that they’d turn out like the Ikea cookies we love. I am SO impressed. This recipe is easy, delicious, and a perfect copycat of the store brand!
