  • 2 cups rhubarb diced
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 cups oats
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 cup raisins optional


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Cream eggs, butter, 1 1/2 cups sugar and vanilla extract until fluffy. About 2 minutes.
  • Add diced rhubarb and 1/2 cup sugar in blender. Blend until finely chopped. Pour into creamed ingredients. Mix together.
  • Sift flour, salt, soda and cinnamon into creamed mixture. Add quick oats. Mix until incorporated. Add chocolate chips and raisins. Mix together.
  • Using a 1 Tablespoon size cookie scoop drop cookies on a greased baking sheet.
  • Bake for 8 minutes. Let rest on a cookie sheet for a minute. Remove to wire rack to completely cool.


RHUBARB: I like finely chopping the rhubarb in the blender or food processer before adding it to the cookies. You can skip this step and add diced rhubarb instead. 
FRESH OR FROZEN RHUBARB: I've never tried using frozen rhubarb (I prefer making the cookies and freezing them instead of freezing rhubarb), but I think it would work just fine! Thaw and drain juice before adding to cookies.
OATS: Quick, old fashioned, or rolled oats will all work in this recipe. 
STORING COOKIES: Store cookies in an airtight container. They will keep at room temperature for up to three days.
FREEZING COOKIES: Cookies can be frozen in an airtight container for up to three months. 
MAKING INTO BAR COOKIES: To make cookies into Rhubarb Oatmeal Bars spread the dough in a greased 9"x13" baking pan. Bake for 15-18 minutes.
