Homemade Oatmeal Cookie Mix Recipe

Cookies are a favorite at our house.  I'm guessing they are at yours, too!  Who doesn't love the smell of cookies baking and the taste of a gooey cookie fresh out of the oven?  This oatmeal cookie mix provides you with a quick way to mix up a batch of cookies whenever you're ready for them!  Put it in a jar and give it as a gift, or bag it up to keep for whenever you're in the mood for fresh baked oatmeal cookies.  You'll love the warm, homey taste that the cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves add to these cookies!

Baked Homemade Oatmeal Cookie Mix

Homemade Oatmeal Cookie Mix

What You Need:

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup + 1/8 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 cups quick oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves

Add ingredients to jar in order.  They will loosely layer on top of one another to fill the jar.  (Note: if you pre-mix the ingredients, they won't fill the jar because of how they settle together.)

Keep a baggie with 1/2 cup of chocolate chips with your mix.

When you're ready to bake your cookies, follow these directions.

In a large bowl, mix 1/2 cup softened butter, 1 egg, and 1 tsp of vanilla.  Add in dry mix and blend well.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Bake at 400 degrees for 11 minutes.

Homemade Oatmeal Cookie Mix in a Jar

For a decorative gift, cut a fabric circle with a 6 inch diameter to go under the ring of your mason jar.  To wrap the chocolate chips, cut a matching fabric circle with a 14 inch diameter.  Tie off with raffia and include a note with instructions.
