Loaded Oatmeal Cookies is a great way to put a twist on one of the most classic cookies. And when we say loaded, we mean loaded. There are two cups of add ins! More on that later.
Oatmeal cookies can sometimes be a little boring. Many people love putting raisins in there. I’m not a fan of raisins, but I understand the need to add something.
So let’s talk about it.
You could add raisins if you wanted. Our recipes calls for chocolate chips, chocolate candies, shredded coconut, and chopped walnuts.
You can use whatever you want. Here are some other things you could add:
-peanut butter pieces
As long as your add ins measure about 2 cups, you’ll be set. It’s fun to experiment with different combinations!
Cookies are pretty straightforward. This recipes uses Chef Shamy Cinnamon Honey Butter, which provides a lovely undertone of cinnamon sweetness. It’s a great compliment to all your add ins.
When baking, make sure that you’re measuring correctly. Here’s a few tips for measuring our butter for baking.
Cookies are a special treat that bring people together! Enjoy!
