Oatmeal Chewy Cookies

Fell in love with this recipe when I found it on Pinterest and knew that I had to make this. With the wintry weather that includes snowy and rainy days, while being stuck in the house calls for baking. This recipe is amazing! I’m putting this out there, but I’m not a baker at all. However, my husband is and loves it…not to mention it is one of the reasons why I married him. Anyway, back to these awesome cookies. Ya’ll it is so quick and easy to make. My dear Flamingos, if you’re like me, then you love to come across a quick and easy baking recipe that’s perfect for the whole family. Well, I got you covered. I made this recipe twice within a month and the hubby loved it!


Everyone may or may not be a fan of oatmeal cookies, but let me assure you that these home baked cookies are so chewy. Trust me, you can’t even tell that you’re actually eating oatmeal cookies. Another thing that drew me to this recipe is they are not your basic and average cookies. You can be so creative! I added peanut butter chips and craisans (dried cranberries) along with the oats to my cookie dough. Feel free to add whatever you like.

This recipe does not require a lot of ingredients because the goal here is having chewy oatmeal cookies. I also think what makes a difference is the type of flour you use. Regular store generic all-purpose flour for baking is fine but personally we like using King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose flour. You can find more info about King Arthur Unbleach All-Purpose Flour here: https://www.kingarthurflour.com/products/all-purpose-flour/. It contains premium flour and Non-GMO verified. Trust me, it’s worth the price especially for a 5-pound bag and this premium flour is so light. It does not get “cakey or clumpy” either.

Another part of this awesome oatmeal chewiness is using more brown sugar than granulated sugar. The granulated sugar and brown sugar combined is the perfect sweetness to the cookies. One more secret, is to use Pumpkin Pie Spice with the oatmeal chewy cookies. I found that McCormic Pumpkin Pie Spice is the best to use because it has cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. It has all of the spices you need in one jar and you can find more info about McCormick Pumpkin Pie Spice here: https://www.mccormick.com/spices-and-flavors/herbs-and-spices/spices/pumpkin-pie-spice.

The cough dough itself can make up to 3 dozen cookies, however it can be cut less than that. Or, the remaining cookie dough for the 3-dozen can be frozen as well.

Recipe Notes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees/F. Line cooke sheet pans with parchment paper or wax paper will work fine (I used wax paper for this recipe), set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, sift together all-purpose flour, baking soda, McCormick Pumpkin Pie Spice and salt; set aside. In a separate mixing bowl, add unsalted butter and sugars. Using a mixer, mix them for no more than 3-minutes. Add each egg one at a time; mix well. Mix in vanilla extract. Add flour mixture to wet ingredients; beat on low speed for 5-minutes. Add oats and other add-ins. Using a mixing spatula, continue to fold in all ingredients until well combined together. Do not over mix dough.

Using a cookie scooper; scoop a small amount of cookie dough and place on prepared cookie sheet. Note:  If you don't have a cooke scooper, take a tablespoon size of cookie dough and roll in your hand to make a small rounded ball. Place dough 2-inches apart.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cookies and edges will have a brown color but soft on the inside. Take out to cool for no more than 10-minutes. Can finish cooling on a baking rack. Once completely cooled, place on plate (keep covered) or airtight sealed container. Stays chewy fresh for up to 4-days.
