Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

Here is my favorite Oatmeal Cookie recipe. These cookies are soft, chewy and full of cinnamon! I like to eat them without raisins, but you can always add them if you like! (See note)

Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Cookies



  • 1 1/4 cups 2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg optional
  • 3 cups oats quick or old-fashioned


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well.
  • In another bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg; mix well. Gradually add to butter/sugar mixture, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Add oats; mix well.
  • Drop by rounded tablespoons (I love using my cookie scoop) onto a Silpat or parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake 8-9 minutes for chewy cookies, or if you like your cookies more on the crisp side, 10-11 minutes. Store tightly covered.


Tips and Thoughts:
If you’d like to add another dimension of flavor, you could substitute some or all of the cinnamon for pumpkin pie spice.
I like to use a lot of cinnamon, but if you prefer less, try using 1 teaspoon instead of 2.
To make Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, add 1 cup of raisins when mixing in the oats.
