Servings 12 cookies


  • rimmed baking sheet


  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup butter, unsalted, room temperature or 1 stick
  • cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Options, pick any 2 or 3

  • ½ cup raisins
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup skor or heath toffee bits
  • ½ cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
  • butter or cooking spray


  • Using your handheld or stand mixer cream the butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla together, on medium speed, until smooth. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed. 
  • Slowly add the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together and mix on low until blended.
  • Add any combination of raisins, chocolate chips, toffee bits and nuts.  Stir with a spoon or on low speed. 
  • Dough will be thick. Chill dough for at least 60 minutes in the refrigerator to help reduce spreading.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare your rimmed baking sheets with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Form discs of dough about 2 inches wide and ¾-1 inch high.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until very lightly browned on the edges. The centers will look uncooked and shiny.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool on your baking sheet for at least 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Enjoy!
