Ingredients For Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

How to Make Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

1. Add all purpose flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and quick oats to a mixing bowl. Mix them together until the ingredients are well combined. Set aside.

2. By using a stand mixer, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and sugar. Once they are well combined, add in vanilla, honey, and eggs. Beat together until the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Scrape the bowl and beat for an additional 10 seconds.

3. First, add the dry ingredients and mix until the mixture is well combined.

4. You must place the dough in the fridge for 45 minutes, and then set the oven to 350°F. Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

5. Use a cookie scoop to form cookie dough balls. Place 12 of the balls of dough on a cookie sheet and keep the remaining dough balls in the fridge.

6. Bake the oatmeal cookies for 9-11 minutes or until they are golden brown and the edges are set. Let rest on the baking sheet for 4 minutes. Remove and finish cooling on a wire rack.

Can I add chocolate chips?

Yep! Feel free to add ½ cup of your favorite chocolate chips into the cookie dough. Fold it in before chilling. 

Semi-sweet chocolate chips are great because they aren’t overly sweet. You could also go with white chocolate or milk chocolate. 

Additionally, you can add pecans, walnuts, or coconut for some other options.

How to soften butter quickly

Using softened butter and room temperature eggs makes all the difference in how the cookies turn out. 

Butter must be softened to room temperature before you can use it in a recipe—and sometimes, it’s just easier to soften butter quickly with a microwave.

To use the microwave, first, you need to heat water in a bowl for 1 minute. Be very careful when you open the door because it can splash and burn you. Next, place the butter in a different bowl and place it in the microwave with the water. Let it sit with the door shut for 10-15 minutes or until it’s softened. You can also put the egg in there to warm it too.
