Hi everyone;
Swedish Havreflarn is another one of my favorite cookies; they are crispy oatmeal cookies with an almost caramelized taste.
These cookies are often seen at the Ikea store, I fill my recipe with dark chocolate.
I love to make these cookies during the holiday seasons, and any time of the year, They are delicious together with tea and coffee and they are super easy to make.


Swedish Havreflarn Cookies ( 35-40 cookies)


  • 200 grams unsalted butter, cold
  • 150 grams sugar
  • 250 grams oatmeal
  • 38 grams all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon  egg whites
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste


For the Filling:

  • 1 cup (175 grams) dark chocolate 
  • sea salt for drizzling



  • Preheat oven to 180C/350F.
  • Line two baking trays with parchment, or use a silicon matt like I do.
  • In a large bowl, add all the ingredients, mix until combined until it forms a cookie dough.
  • Form small balls about 1 teaspoon and leave just over an inch on all sides for spreading on your baking trays 
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden.
  • Allow to cool on the tray for five minutes and then cool on a rack where they will crisp up even further.
  • Melt the chocolate in a microwave.
  • Add 1-2 teaspoons chocolate on one cookie, drizzle some sea salt on top ( optional)  and sandwich two halves together with the melted chocolate.

Have a beautiful Sunday you all, and happy baking everyone,




  1. These look incredible! I look forward to going to ikea just to buy these, can’t wait to try this recipe x

  2. Hi Manuela. I made these cookies last christmas and they were out of this world delicious. I want to make these for a friend of mine who’s gluten free. Can I sub the all purpose flour with almond flour? will it give the same results.

  3. Hi Manuela,
    I made your cookies today and while they tasted okay, they spread in the oven a lot. The result was a lacey, wafer thin crisp. I’m wondering perhaps I might try chilling the dough before shaping and baking. I chose this recipe because of the gram measurements, not really too sure where I went wrong.
