If you are looking for a new cookie recipe, the Hot Chocolate Brownie Oatmeal Cookies are a must try.

During the holiday season, many homes have a kitchen filled with tempting aromas from all the tasty cookies baking in the oven. From grandma’s classic recipe to simple sugar cookies, those cookies taste even sweeter because of the holiday celebrations.

For some, this holiday season is not the same. As the country struggles during these trying times, food insecurity has become its own pandemic. From long lines at food banks to those who silently struggle with the inability to put food on the table, the holiday season is not as merry as years’ past.

This year, Quaker is partnering with Feeding America to share the warmth this holiday season. For every participating UPC code entered on, Quaker will donate 10 meals to Feeding America. Now that bowl of oatmeal that mom said sticks to your ribs will help others curb their hunger.

As part of the program, Quaker partnered with Tia Mowry-Hardict. A fan of Quaker oats, she has found many creative ways to use the pantry staple. From sweet recipes to even homemade oat milk, there is always a way to use more oats.

For the holidays, Mowry-Hardict shared a delicious recipe for Hot Chocolate Brownie Oatmeal Cookies. Check out the Instagram post for the full recipe. Given that hot chocolate is such a food trend this year, this cookie recipe might become a new favorite for your family.

Looking at the recipe, this cookie combines all the favorite holiday flavors. From chocolate to peppermint, it captures everything that people crave during the holidays.

Also, the cookie is rich and decadent. The cream cheese adds to the luscious mouth feel and the oats add a touch of texture. Although you might want to eat a handful, a couple of cookies will satisfy. Just remember to have a glass of milk ready.

Since this cookie recipe gives back, you could make a couple batches to share. Whether you drop a few at a neighbor’s house or even make some extra for the kids’ teachers, those holiday cookies will bring smiles all around.
