What are Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies?
Let’s start with the basics. Oatmeal cookies are a sweet cookie treat that’s made with oatmeal as the primary ingredient.
In today’s cinnamon oatmeal cookies, we’re kicking oatmeal cookies up a notch by emphasizing the cinnamon flavor for an extra cozy oatmeal cookie delight.
Made with simple ingredients you probably already have in your pantry, these cinnamon and oat cookies are easy to make and easy to make your own–choose your favorite add-ins, like dried fruit and nuts.
How to Make Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies
Start by preheating the oven to 350°F. Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients, including: flour, oats, baking powder, ground cinnamon and salt.
Then, in a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla.
Now, to combine the two: pour the dry ingredients over the wet ingredients, then stir and fold until completely combined.
Fold in add-ins—I like using finely chopped walnuts. Larger walnut pieces could cause crumbly cookies.
Cover the bowl and chill the cinnamon oatmeal cookie dough in the freezer for around 20 minutes, or until firm throughout.
Then, grab a medium cookie scoop. You’ll scoop and drop balls of cookie dough onto the cookie sheet. Remember, the cookies will spread, so give them room to do so.
You can optionally flatten the cookies for large, flat cookies, or leave them as balls for narrower, thicker cookies.
Bake for about 15 minutes, until deep golden on the edges.
Cool cookies directly on the sheet for about 10 minutes to allow them to firm up, then transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling.
