During a recent pantry clean out, I discovered 3 pounds of brown sugar.
So, I unleashed my google fu to find a recipe to use some of it up. I discovered this recipe from The Pioneer Woman, but it didn’t quite meet our needs (aka what was in the kitchen). So with some changes, I whipped up a batch of chewy, yummy, spiced oatmeal cookies that are sure to please even the finickiest cookie monster!
I had to make 3 batches because they just kept disappearing!
Spiced Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookies (Adapted from this recipe )
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) Salted Butter, Softened
- ½ cup coconut oil, room temperature
- 1/2 Cups (packed) Brown Sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
- 2 whole Eggs
- 1-1/2 cup All-purpose Flour
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 2 teaspoons each: Cinnamon, allspice, ground ginger, nutmeg
- 3 cups Old Fashioned Oats
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Beat together the butter, coconut oil, and sugars until fluffy. Beat in vanilla and eggs.
Mix together the flour, salt, baking soda, and spices in a separate bowl. Add it into the wet ingredients, mixing it until just combined. Mix in the oats until just combined. Don’t overmix!
Drop scoops/spoonfuls of dough onto a lightly greased cookie sheet, spacing them a couple inches apart. Bake for 12-13 minutes or until dark and chewy. These cookies spread when you bake them, so make sure to give them room to grow!
Let them cool slight on the pan after removing from the oven, then transfer the cookies.
Makes 24-36 cookies (depending on the size cookie you make)
