Ingredients

Instructions

  • Put the butter, white sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla in a medium-size mixing bowl. Use an electric hand mixer to beat it until creamy. You don’t want to overmix it- about 2 minutes is a good mixing time. 
  • Next, add in your egg and Kodiak waffle mix and mix again. After the Kodiak mix is fully incorporated, stir in the chocolate chips. 
  • Chill dough for 1 hour in the fridge.
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a metal cookie sheet with parchment paper. 
  • Using a cookie scoop, put nine scoops of cookie dough (half the dough) on your prepared cookie tray. Leave adequate space on the tray between the cookies. You’ll be baking half a batch at a time. 
  • Bake cookies for 9-11 minutes if on a light cookie sheet, or 8-9 minutes if on a dark cookie sheet. The cookie sheet should be on an oven rack about one-third of the way from the top of the oven.
  • Pro tip! If you want a soft cookie, make sure you take them out of the oven before they look done. They will continue to firm up as they cool.
  • Let the cookies cool on the baking tray for 2 minutes before moving them to a wire rack to finish cooling. If using a dark baking sheet, you’ll want to get them off the sheet as soon as you can. 
  • Enjoy your delicious homemade Kodiak Cake cookies!

Notes

This is a level 3 recipe (weight maintenance and active lifestyles). I’d love to be able to tell you that these are healthy Kodiak Cakes cookies. In truth, these cookies aren’t much more nutritious than classic chocolate chip cookies.
This cookie recipe is loaded with sugar from table sugar, brown sugar, and chocolate chips. Additionally, these cookies contain a generous amount of added fat in the form of butter. What you end up with is a high calorie, low volume treat.
Snacks made with Kodiak Cakes may get a health halo because they do contain a little more protein and fiber than usual. However, I wouldn’t eat extra cookies because they are a “healthier” choice.
Using Kodiak Cakes mix instead of flour only knocks off about 5 calories per cookie, and adds 1 gram of protein. You would actually make a much larger nutritional impact swapping the sugars for Swerve and using sugar free chocolate chips:

(Nutrition information above is for the amount of sugar or sugar substitutes per cookie.)
Making low carb Kodiak cookies with the swaps above will save you over 30 calories and 13 grams of net carbs per cookie. (Net carbs is total carbohydrates minus fiber and erythritol.) Note that these would not be keto Kodiak cookies, because Kodiak mix is only moderately low in carbs.
One more tip- I don’t recommend using a lower calorie or light butter in this recipe. These products often contain more air and/or water than regular butter. These attributes can have a negative impact on your finished cookies.
 
 
Nutrition information is for one cookie. (Yeah, yeah, I know it’s unlikely anyone will eat just one of these. Be sure to share!)
