Fast & Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Monday and hope you all enjoyed your Valentine’s Day weekend! My little one has been under the weather plus it was bitterly cold so we couldn’t go out as a family on Valentine’s Day as we originally planned.  I decided to still take out my older daughter for breakfast and it was really nice spending time together just the two of us.  For me it’s the sweet little things like this that make a great Valentine’s day it doesn’t have to be anything lavish.  I also wanted to bake for my girls and they love chocolate chip cookies so I tried a new recipe I discovered online on the Kevin & Amanda blog.  This is a very fast and easy recipe and they turned out really well.

Fast & Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies 06

What you’ll need:

  • 1/2 a cup of salted butter
  • 1 box of yellow cake mix
  • 2 packets of Quaker Maple & Brown Sugar instant oatmeal
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 bag of regular or mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Fast & Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies 01


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F, then line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Then melt the stick of butter, once melted whisk it constantly for a couple of minutes.     Then pour it into a large mixing bowl, add the cake mix, 2 oatmeal packets, and eggs.  Mix it with a hand held or stand mixer on low just until it is combined.  Then fold in the chocolate chips.
  3. Refrigerate the mixture for about 30 minutes. (You can skip this if you are in a rush)
  4. Then scoop approximately 1.5 tablespoons of dough and roll them into even balls onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for approximately 10 to 15 minutes until edges are golden brown.  Check on them to ensure they don’t over cook which will lend to a drier cookie.

Fast & Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies 02These came out better then I expected as I’m not much of a fan of using cake mixes or prepared batters when I bake.  My girls and hubby liked them, I personally prefer a chocolate chip cookie from scratch but if I need to bake up something quickly this is the perfect recipe.

    What unusual ingredients for cookies! Definately something to try…although, to be honest we only get to the batter stage, never the baking stage, lol!!

    Hello Marta! Not only do cookies look delicious and amazing but I can also feel the love that was put into making them. I also spent V-Day with my youngest daughter, Andrea (my oldest is away in college). We went to a dog festival in downtown Orlando and we had an amazing time. Spending time with her is very important to me, especially now. I am so glad you had an amazing weekend with your family and even thought it was super cold as you mentioned on your post, you got to be with your loved ones and that is the most precious gift we can give to the ones we love the most. Have an amazing week and blessings to you and your family always. XOXO, Jeannette

    These look so good… I’ve made them with pudding, but never yellow cake mix and oats! I love to try different chocolate chip recipes, so I am def. going to pin this and try later. Sorry your little one wasn’t feeling well, we are on week 3 at my house of at least one person being sick!

    This sounds so easy! I recently saw a similar recipe to use cake mix to make banana bread that I want to try.
