Bisquick chocolate chip cookies are a fast easy way to bake dessert. Add nuts to this ready made pancake mix for a fun twist on YUM.
Making Bisquick chocolate chips cookies is an easy treat that everyone will want you to make again. Use peanut butter chips to change things up and/or include nuts too. One of many quick easy dessert recipes we have here on our blog to share. (affiliate links present)
These were made in the oven but you can totally make air fryer chocolate chip cookies with this batter too! That is great for a small batch so you can make a few for a few days straight. OR have a few friends over and make a whole dozen. Especially if you’re baking with kids this is a super easy way to bake.
You may have only used this boxed mix to make pancakes in the morning but you can do so much more with it. Let us show you how versatile it is.
Bisquick Dessert Recipes
The great thing about this mix is that it has all the rising elements mixed right in. That means you have fewer ingredients to get out and it can be made faster.
It is just a premade baking mix sold in a box that contains flour, leavening agents, salt and a powdered fat component to it. Typically you use it to make pancakes or biscuits but you can bake all sorts of things with it.
What can I use in place of Bisquick?
If you cannot find this in your local grocery store you can make it yourself! It’s so versatile from making pancakes, to these, to Bisquick banana bread too. The ingredients are quite simple, you just mix together:
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1.5 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt.
- 1 Tbsp. softened butter
There are knock offs typically that are store brand with the same ingredients. Those may be less expensive and basically the same thing so you can compare and see which you’d rather buy. OR if you love batch cooking you could mix the ingredients I shared above and store in a sealed container to use for later.
Just write on the side what to add to each portion (it will say on the box) so you never have to buy ready made again. It is basically 2 cups of mix + 2 eggs + 1 cup milk.
When making cookies with Bisquick you will need:
- Baking mix
- Brown sugar and white granulated sugar
- Vanilla and egg
- Large bowl and mixer is helpful to cream together
Beyond that you choose your other mix ins. 1/2 cup of nuts would be great with your semi sweet chocolate chips.
You’ll start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees F.
- In a bowl beat together butter, sugars, vanilla and egg. Add Bisquick mix and then stir in chocolate chips and nuts if you would like.
- Drop dough in about 1 Tbsp sizes for each cookie with space in between them on an ungreased cookie sheet. Will make 12-18 so you may need 2 baking sheets.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove once edges are lightly golden browned and middle no longer looks wet. Do not over-bake or they will be crispy vs. tender.
- Set on cooling rack to allow to cool completely before enjoying them.
My biggest suggestion when making baked goods is do NOT cook them too long! For the most delicious chocolate chip cookies you need to take them out when they look slightly underdone. When the middle looks too soft but edges are slightly crisped.
If you leave them on the pan to cool they will continue to bake thru and stiffen up. That will create a very moist and tender cookie that will last for a few days. Best way to store cookies is to use a freezer bag. Once cooled slide them in with 1/2 of a piece of sandwich bread on the bottom. This will create a bit of moisture and help them last longer.
You should get a good 3-4 days out of them if you suck out all the air and close after you take one out. Leave them on the counter and not in the fridge or else that will dry them out and make them crispy.
