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.
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.
