Besides being my first recipe of 2015, this crunchy oatmeal cookie was another first as well. It was the first thing I baked in my new oven!
Today, I wanted to re-blog a recipe I reviewed way back when. I think September just feels right for these cookies. Maybe it’s that back-to-school season that has me ready.
I used butterscotch chips, nuts, coconut, m&m’s, and of course oats. However, I think they would be fantastic with some raisins or dates, maybe a little orange zest and cinnamon, or peanut butter candies. Honestly, you can just use whatever you like, or whatever you have in your pantry.
This cookie is not quite as sweet as some others on this site, and that coupled with the absence of chocolate chips makes it a lovely choice for January. Something simple after December’s abundance of sugar and butter.
Can I make a confession? I don’t like oatmeal. Never have. There is not enough sugar in the world to make otherwise delicious oats actually taste good when they are cooked.
The girls and I had fun figuring out what kind of cookie we could make with the ingredients we had on hand. I found a half bag of chocolate chips and a half bag of cinnamon chips, and The Hippie Chick suggested oatmeal cookies, and voila! A heavenly concoction was born.
I made these pumpkin muffins for breakfast on Christmas Day. Robb took a bite, and promptly gave me a thumbs-up. That’s code for, “Make these again.”
Since this last year has been so much fun, I figured it was only fitting to celebrate with my favorite cake of all time. And let me tell you, it takes a lot to eclipse the wonders of Red Velvet Cake.
This oatmeal cookie recipe uses peanut butter as it’s main ingredient. After all, nothing goes better with peanut butter than peanut butter.
Adding cinnamon chips to a chocolate cookie was an idea that spoke to me. Better yet, adding cinnamon chips to a chocolate oatmeal cookie… well, I think we have a winner.
