Servings 15 oatmeal cookies


  • 150 g Oats or 1 and 1/2 cups
  • 50 g Sugar or 1/4 cup
  • 113 g Butter or 1/2 cup
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Sugar or Vanilla extract/cinnamon powder/cardamom powder :1/2 tsp


Prepare the oatmeal cookie dough

  • Into a bowl add in the softened butter and sugar.
    Mix and combine until it forms a homogenous cream.
    Now add in the egg and whisk together.
    Add the flavor you like to add into the oat cookies.
    Here I used vanilla flavor.We can use vanilla sugar or vanilla extract.We can use cardamom powder or cinnamon powder instead.
    Now add in the coarsely ground oats into this.Mix and combine, until it forms a cookie dough.

Shape the oatmeal cookies

  • As this is a thick cookie dough, it will not spread much while baking and so we don’t need to chill or keep it in fridge before baking.
    Scoop the cookie dough using an ice cream scoop or here I have used 1 tbsp measuring spoon to scoop the cookie dough.
    I greased the spoon with some oil so that the oatmeal cookie dough can be released easily from the spoon.
    Place the cookie dough on a parchment lined baking sheet.
    Keep about an inch space between the cookie dough as they have enough space to puff up while baking in the oven.
    To make the oatmeal cookies to look more appealing to our eyes, let’s top them with some nuts or raisins or chocolate chips(optional).

Bake the cookies

  • Bake the cookies in a 375F preheated oven for 12-14 minutes.
    The baking duration may vary according to the size of the cookies.Bigger cookies need more baking time.
    Note that the cookies will seem underdone ,right out of the oven. That’s okay, they will firm up as they cool.
    Remove from the oven and cool on the baking sheet for 3-4 minutes, then transfer the cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling.
    They will be quite soft until completely cooled.
