Chick-Fil-A Cookie – soft chocolate chip cookies that are loaded with oatmeal, dark brown sugar, 2 kinds of chocolate and a touch of honey. They are thick, chewy, and just like the ones at Chick-Fil-A!

If you have never tried the cookies at Chick-Fil-A you have been missing out! They are thick, chewy, soft and so good! Most of the time, they offer to warm them up for you, and that melty chocolate is just delicious!

The cookies have a secret ingredient in them that makes them just a little different than your average cookie. But don’t worry, now you can make these at home! And with ingredients you probably already have in your house already.

What’s In Chick-Fil-A Cookies

These cookies are similar to your average chocolate chip cookie, with the exception of honey! Honey is the secret ingredient that makes different. And they taste just like the ones from the store, so don’t leave it out!

  • All-Purpose Flour
  • Quick Cooking Oats
  • Baking Powder
  • Baking Soda
  • Dark Brown Sugar
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Vegetable Shortening
  • Butter
  • Honey
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Eggs
  • Milk Chocolate Chips
  • Chocolate Chunks

The classic chocolate chip cookies I grew up with are made with half vegetable shortening (Crisco) and half butter. I know some people are just against it, but it is what makes the cookies soft.

How To Make Copycat Chick-Fil-A Cookies

  1. Mix together the flour, oats, baking powder, and baking soda in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Using and electric stand mixer cream together the butter, shortening, and both sugars. Beat until everything comes together and is well combined.
  3. Add in the honey, vanilla extract and eggs and mix until the eggs are fully incorporated.
  4. Next add in the flour mixture, mix until it is fully combined. Stop the mixer to scrape down the sides as necessary.
  5. Then you fold in the chocolate chips. I like to reserve about half of the chocolate chunks to put on the top of the cookie dough before baking.
  6. Scoop balls of dough onto a lined baking sheet. If you want giant cookies like they ones Chick-Fil-A serves, use a 1/4 cup measuring cup. Top with a few of the reserved chocolate chunks.
  7. Bake for about 12 minutes, or if you are making smaller cookies about 9 minutes.
  8. Let them cool on the baking tray for 5 minutes before placing them on a wire rack to cool completely.

Do You Chill The Dough?

Nope! For this recipe there is no chilling involved. So you can go right from dreaming of cookies, to actually eating them in about 30 minutes!

That being said, you definitely can let the dough sit in the fridge for 24 hours if you want to make the dough ahead of time.

Storing Cookies

To store these cookies, put them in an air tight container and they will last for 3-4 days. Or you can put them in the freezer for up to 3 months.

  1. I am both delighted and scared to have this recipe… I LOVE these cookies, and now want a batch at home at all times.

  2. My kids loved these cookies and they had so much fun making these with me! Definitely on our remake list! So excited to make these again!

  3. Cookies where really good. Only issue.. lol they didn’t look like the picture. They spread. But it has a great flavor.

    1. Did you use real butter or margarine? And for the vegetable shortening did you use Criso, a solid shortening or did you use vegetable oil? This is one of the few cookies I don’t ever have problems with them spreading, so I am surprised to hear that.

      1. Recipe calls for Vegetable Shortening, which Crisco is one brand that makes it. Vegetable oil is a liquid, vegetable shortening is a solid.

  4. These cookies didn’t taste like Chick-fil-a cookies at all, they tasted like someone tried to make a healthy version of a chocolate chip cookie.They were ok, but they weren’t what I expected from the description of a Chick Fil a cookie

  5. Did you sift your dry ingredients? My cookies spread so not sure what happened. Still delicious though

    1. No I don’t. I am not sure why they spread for you, this is one cookie I never have that problem with. you could try chilling the dough well before baking to help solve that problem

  6. Once I let them cool, they were exactly like chick fil a cookies for the fraction of the price! Thanks, I did add a bit of flaky sea salt because they were soo sweet.
