Maple-Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

Maple-Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

My kids have had a tough month this month.  They both have had walking pneumonia, high fevers, terrible coughs, and my son also had the stomach flu.  Poor things!  I decided to make some cookies because what makes a kid smile faster than a cookie?  I found this recipe on Martha Stewart and knew they would be delicious.  The kids came home from a cold rainy day of school to these warm and delicious maple-cinnamon oatmeal cookies.  They were beyond pleased and loved every last bite of their sweet treat. My husband really likes the cookies too.

Maple-Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat.

Combine the oats, flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon together in a small bowl.  In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars on high until pale and fluffy.  Add the maple syrup, egg, and vanilla extract to the mixture and beat, scraping the side of the bowl as needed.  Add the oat mixture and stir until just combined.

My dough was quite sticky so I put it in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes so it was easier to work with.  Drop dough by the teaspoon, 2 inches apart, onto the lined baking sheet.  Bake until the edges are golden, about 10-12 minutes.  Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes until set then move them to a wire rack to cool.  Serve with ice cold milk – enjoy!

  1. Oh my, I can imagine just how pleased they were with these delicious treats waiting for them! They look wonderful. I love that they are chock full of oatmeal.

  2. You are such a great mom! I bet that was a wonderful surprise for your kids. Hope they are feeling better!! The cookies look perfect.. wish I could reach into my computer and grab one!

  3. I hope your children are feeling better, Pam! I’m sure these cookies put a smile on their face! I love oatmeal cookies, and the addition of maple syrup sounds delicious!

  4. I was just giggling at your middle photo. I live right by a Trader Joe’s in Ohio and I have all the same ingredients as you. Love Trader Joe’s!

    1. Alright, Pam, I have a question. I LOVE oatmeal cookies, and these have a fantastic flavor. But they turned out all thin & lacy-looking, if you know what I mean, & I hate those kind of cookies. Why?

    2. Missy,

      Glad you liked the flavor. I have a feeling the butter wasn’t cold enough…I put my dough in the refrigerate for a bit before baking so they wouldn’t flatten out and get too crispy. Let me know if that helps next time.

  5. We’ve been eating a lot of oatmeal cookies here, too, thanks to my new and wonderful cookie scoop. With lots of cinnamon, they are truly the greatest! I hope your little ones are on the mend now! Ryan had walking pneumonia last December, and I basically kept him home for the month. I let him go back to school after a week, and 2 days later he was sick again, so home he was for the month. I hope your kids don’t suffer that extreme.

  6. Awww, I hope your kids are feeling better. I’m sure these cookies definitely helped them. They look so great. I haven’t used maple syrup in my cookies before so I’m really excited to give these a try!

    Thanks for another great recipe, Pam.

  7. I’m so sorry your kids have been sick. But you’re right – nothing makes a kid happy quicker than a warm batch of cookies! These cookies look terrific, and hopefully I’ll make them for my family too.

  8. I am sure these cookies would make your kids feel better without a doubt – I am not even sick and they are making me feel better 😉

    Cheers

  9. I was inspired to make these tonight since my daughter is sick, you inspired me! They’re really delicious cookies, thank you! I could have made them thicker, I think, although I like the thin ones too. Thanks for the great recipe, I will definitely make these again. Great texture & flavor.
