Oatmeal Cookies

While thinking of something to have for a late afternoon snack, Oatmeal Cookies eventually crossed my mind. I knew that I still have the ingredients and time is not a big factor because it only takes less than 30 minutes for me to enjoy one.
Oatmeal Cookies

This cookie recipe taste just right – that’s what I like about it. It has the right amount of sweetness and you can taste the sudden explosion of the cinnamon on your fist bite. I also like the soft texture because it makes this cookie chewy and more enjoyable.

I was able to make 9 large pieces of perfect oatmeal cookies with this recipe. I scooped 1/4 cup of mixture for every cookie. If you prefer average sized cookies, try scooping a heaping tablespoon; this can yield approximately 14 to 16 pieces.

Before I wrap this up, allow me to give some pointers: It is normal for the cookies to become soft after baking – do not over bake. Simply remove the cookies from the oven and wait for a few minutes until it cools down. Place the cookie in a cooling grid or wire rack only if the texture is hard enough. Removing soft cookies from the tray might tear them apart. Lastly, having a hot cup of coffee, milk or chocolate by your side is not a bad idea.

Try this delicious Oatmeal Cookie recipe and let me know what you think.

  1. hi sir vanjo.. i want to try this on the weekend.. just wanna ask, what kind of oats will i use?

  2. jeannette genese says:

    hi! wanna try this sana for my kid kasi he really loved cookies.. ask ko lang if pwed po ba gamitin e oven toaster lang and gaano kainit at tagal

    • You may use an oven toaster, but please take note that the recipe is in Fahrenheit. If your toaster is in Centigrade, please do the necessary conversion. It will pretty much be the same time, but I suggest that you pay close attention because most ovens (especially toasters) vary in terms of the amount of heat produced.

  3. jeannette genese says:

  11. i will try this later, look so yummmm…..Thanks for this kuya, my son will love this,,,pretty sure….sana kuya po drinks din….

  12. Hi Lhen,

    Based on experience, halos wala namang effect as long as bowl ang gagamitin mo. Mas maganda lang kung mas malaki ang bowl para may extra space ka sa pag mix.

  13. Julirose says:

    hi po..right now cra po kasi ung oven namin, is it ok to use the microwave or ung turbo for baking?? if so ano po sa dalawa ang mas ok?

  14. Hi Alotte, they are one and the same. You can definitely use cinnamon powder for this recipe.

    Hope this helps.

    • Sir thanks for the quick reply.

      Naniniwala ka ba sir na nagbenta ako ng banana bread, from your recipe at ubos kagad ito?I cannot believe na nakagawa ako ng banana bread na patok ang lasa tapos madali pang gawin at mura lang ang ingredients. God bless you and your family always because you know how to share! Looking forward for more recipes from you. Nakopya ko na lahat ng recipe mo sa isang notebook, it’s one of my treasure!

      Thanks once again!

  15. hello vanjo!
    my first time to try your recipes can i use oven toaster( coz’ i dont have oven) for food for the gods and other cookie recipes? thanks and hope to have your answer asap!

  16. Hi there!

    Just letting you know that I tried the oatmeal cookies just earlier. My girls loved it!!! But u know what? I didn’t have the wax paper. Thought I had it in my pantry -freezer paper pala yun. Still, I took the risk to cook the cookies just by greasing the pan a tiny bit. It was a success- Thank God! Thanks again Vanj! Hope u could share some more cookie recipes soon!
