Brown Sugar Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

The baking bug is still on! We’ve been trying some recipes almost every weekend and though baking is tiring and can be expensive, I love the satisfaction I get each time something “edible” comes out of the oven. It is even more rewarding when picky eaters such as my nephews get to appreciate what I baked.

The other weekend, I decided to bake oatmeal cookies since it is easier. Actually, this is already my second time making this cookie. With the first time, I don’t quite like the outcome so I looked for a different recipe and thankfully, the result is better than the first recipe I tried.

This brown sugar oatmeal cookie recipe is very easy to make even first time bakers can never go wrong.

2 cups packed dark brown sugar

1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

3 cups old-fashioned oats
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In the bowl of an electric mixer (or using a hand mixer), beat together the brown sugar and butter until fluffy. Beat in the vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time, scraping the bowl after each one.

Mix together the flour, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl. Add it into the creamed mixture in 2 to 3 batches, mixing until just combined. Mix in the oats until just combined.

Use your preferred size cookie scoop (or a regular spoon) to drop portions of dough onto baking sheets, spacing them a couple inches apart. Bake until dark and chewy, 12 to 13 minutes. If you'd like a crispier cookie, just cook a little longer!

Let the cookies cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer onto a plate for serving.

Tip: Add 1/2 cup finely chopped nuts to the flour mixture if you'd like a nutty flavor and crunch.

Mixture complete with oatmeal.

On to the oven!
