Chewy Oatmeal and Morsel Cookies

Updated on July 19, 2014

My favorite cookie

I first discovered these versatile cookies several years ago, and have customized them to my taste. I can make different versions, depending on what ingredients I have on hand, what time of the year it is, or what I am in the mood for. I especially like white chocolate chips and either dried cranberries or dried cherries.

My most recent cookies have butterscotch and white chocolate chips, walnuts, and raisins. I sent them to a friend of my boyfriend's, who has been very helpful to us. I was told he referred to the cookies as "boss", which apparently is a good thing.

My use of "morsel" refers to the chocolate chips, and all of those small bites of goodness. I looked the word up, just out of curiosity:

Please Rate My Hub:

5 stars from 9 ratings of Oatmeal Morsel Cookies

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 32 min
Ready in: 42 min
Yields: 48-60 cookies

Lower Sugar Version:

  • When I made these recently, I cut the sugar by 1/2 cup. You can reduce either the white sugar or the brown sugar without compromising the cookies, and they still taste quite sweet. Especially with chocolate morsels (or other types) and dried fruit.
  • You could also substitute any of the sugar for sweeteners such as Splenda.
  • I have also heard of using applesauce in place of some of the sugar.

Note: Above estimate for cook times is based on 48 cookies. If you have smaller cookies, making more than four dozen, it'll be another 8 minutes in the oven. Also note that each 12 cookie batch goes in for 8-10 minutes each. If you wish to speed things up a bit, you may put 2 cookie sheets in at a time.

Everyone makes cookies differently, but mine barely ever come out to more than three dozen! I prefer them just a little bigger than "golfball size".

Ingredients:

1 cup butter, room temperature

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla or almond extract (I use almond extract,because I like the flavor)

2 cups flour (I use wheat flour, but any all-purpose flour will do)

2 ½ cups old-fashioned oats: Add 2 cups of it into a food processor until it turns into a powdery consistency, and leave ½ cup or so whole (If you really like whole oats in your cookies, just put less in the food processor)

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

12 oz morsels (white chocolate chips, chocolate chips or chunks, butterscotch chips, or peanut butter chips. For more variety, use 6 oz each of two different kinds). 12 oz is 1 1/2 cups.

1 cup chopped pecans, walnuts, or other nuts

1 cup raisins, dried cranberries, cherries, or other dried fruit

Instructions:

- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

- Cream butter and sugars. Add eggs and extract.

- Mix the flour, oats, salt, baking powder and soda. Add to the creamed mixture, mixing well.

- Stir in morsels and nuts.

  • Scoop golf ball size portions of dough onto ungreased cookie sheets about 2 inches apart (about 1 dozen fit comfortably on a standard cookie sheet) Note: I like lining my cookie sheets with parchment paper. It makes less of a mess, and is less likely for the cookies to stick on the sheet)
  • Cook each batch for 8-10 minutes. It'll be done when it is fairly solid and browned on the bottom. If it looks a little moist, it's okay. It will look more solid once it's been out of the oven for a few minutes.

Alternative Options

  • Add 1 Tablespoon dark rum for a different flavor. It would taste good in the "fruitcake cookies"
  • Experiment with the many extracts to find one that goes with your combination of ingredients
  • Add almond extract to cookies with sliced almonds in it, for extra flavor. I like to add it in many different types of cookies
  • Add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, if desired. They taste great in classic oatmeal raisin cookies
  • Try using honey or maple syrup in place of some of the sugar for a different flavor
  • To moisten cookies and alter the taste a little, try adding 1/4 cup of applesauce, preserves, or pumpkin puree to the batter
  • As an interesting twist, maybe try combining both pumpkin puree and pepitas into the batter
  • I have seen many recipes with pudding mix in it, and I plan on trying it sometime. There are so many flavors out there that would taste good in the cookies

If you have any other ideas, feel free to let me know. There are so many combinations out there, and many will work with this recipe.

Saving Some for Later?

I made one batch ahead of time, stored it in a storage container with parchment paper in between each stack, and put it in the freezer for a week. I took them out a while before I planned on cooking them, although you should be able to cook them straight from the freezer. They would take a few minutes longer. They're done once they're brown on the bottom, and fairly solid.

Warning:

This is what happens when you accidentally turn the oven on too high. I put these in the oven right after I made pizza, and it was nearly 100 degrees hotter than it was supposed to be. Oops!

Stay Tuned...

Soon I plan on showing you what I did with this "mistake". Instead of throwing it out, I turned it into another baked treat, and it was phenomenal!

Baking Mix for This Recipe:

If you really like this recipe and plan on making it every so often, it's nice to have a baking mix for it. Whip up a quick batch of the dry ingredients, and you'll have enough to make this recipe two or three times. It lasts for quite a while, as long as you store it in a jar or sealed container in a cool, dry place (such as a cabinet). I like to reuse a clean jar, oatmeal container, or large powdered creamer container to store this in. Keep in mind the size of the mix, because they take up quite a bit of space.

For three sets of cookies: (Makes 19 1/2* - 30 cups of this mix)

Ingredients: Mix together 3 cups of sugar, 3 cups of brown sugar, 6 cups of flour, 6 cups of oatmeal that has been put through the food processor, 1 1/2 cups of whole oatmeal (old-fashioned is preferred), 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 3 teaspoons baking powder, and 3 teaspoons baking soda, 36 oz your choice of morsels (About 4 1/2 cups)*, 3 cups your choice of nuts*, and 3 cups your choice of dried fruit*, and store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place (such as a cupboard or pantry).

* If you wish, you may leave out any of the morsels, nuts, or dried fruit until later, if you think that you may not always want the same combination.


For two sets of cookies: (Makes 13* - 20 cups of this mix)

Ingredients: Mix together 2 cups sugar, 2 cups brown sugar, 4 cups flour, 4 cups old-fashioned oats that have been put through a food processor, 1 cup whole old-fashioned oats, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 2 teaspoons baking soda, 24 oz your choice of morsels (about 3 cups)*, 2 cups your choice of nuts*, and 2 cups your choice of dried fruits*, and store in a cool, dry place (such as a cupboard or pantry).

* If you wish, you may leave out any of the morsels, nuts, or dried fruit until later, if you think that you may not always want the same combination.


Instructions for mixing up one batch:

  • Preheat oven to 375°
  • Add 10 cups of the dry mix (if you added the morsels, nuts and dried fruit), or else 6 1/2 cups (if you did not add the morsels, nuts and dried fruit) to a large mixing bowl
  • If you did not add the morsels, nuts and dried fruit, do so now: for one batch, 12 oz (1 1/2 cups) morsels, 1 cup nuts, and 1 cup dried fruits, any kinds that you think would taste great together
  • Mix in 1 cup butter (room temperature), 2 eggs, and 1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract. Mix well.
  • Scoop golf ball size portions of dough onto ungreased cookie sheets about 2 inches apart (about 1 dozen fit comfortably on a standard cookie sheet) Note: I like lining my cookie sheets with parchment paper. It makes less of a mess, and is less likely for the cookies to stick on the sheet)
  • Cook each batch for 8-10 minutes. It'll be done when it is fairly solid and browned on the bottom. If it looks a little moist, it's okay. It will look more solid once it's been out of the oven for a few minutes.

      Insightful Tiger, hahaha, I'm glad I made you addicted ;) They are so good, and I am really happy that you liked them, as well as everyone else! Thank you so much for letting me know you tried them. It makes my day!

      Mmm, I agree about the raisins and almond extract. Awesome combination! I use the almond more often, because in many cookies it is a more delicious taste than vanilla.

      I appreciate your visit to my page. Have a spectacular weekend!

      Sister Kathryn! I made these cookies this week.

      I just want to say that it's not cool that now I won't stop eating them and had to make another batch, because everybody else likes them too much as well and they keep eating them too! The nerve!

      I chose to make them with raisins and almond extract. They are too good!

      They are now my favorite cookie as well.

      ps I tried butterscotch and chocolate - They were yummy too! However, the raisin with almond extract are just ridiculously yummy!

      Thomas, thanks, I appreciate the rating. I hope you enjoy them! I have tried many variations, and they're all good.

      I'm glad you like the layout. It would be easy to make a "quick" recipe with just one photo, but it wouldn't be much fun!

      You're welcome for the ideas, and thank you for reading and commenting! I will be checking out some more of your delicious recipes shortly!

      Peggy, I love oats. They add nutrition, flavor, and texture that I think tastes very good.

      I'm glad you like my hub. I like variety when it comes to recipes, because I don't always have every ingredient for certain ones. I am constantly adapting recipes to suit the ingredients I have on hand, so putting forth one that is versatile is right up my alley!

      Thanks for reading and commenting, and have a wonderful weekend!

      Hi Kathryn,

      This is certainly a versatile cookie depending upon which flavorings one wishes to have or what one might have on hand. I like that the base of it contains whole oats. Pinning this to my board on Pinterest in the cookie section so that I can refer to it at will. Up and useful votes. Thanks!

      Rajan, I'm glad you liked this article. The cookies are very delicious. I'm glad you liked the baking mix, as well. Since that is a theme in my hubs, I will try to add a baking mix variation to my baking recipes as I create them. I will be writing more recipes using the baking mixes soon, as well. I have a few in mind!

      I wish I could serve people cookies right off the screen! Wouldn't it be nice to hand out samples that way?

      Thank you for reading, commenting and providing feedback. I appreciate it.

      Love it! How did you know I wanted to make oatmeal cookies this week? The table of optional ingredients is clever and I like the tips for saving. I usually just put raisins in my cookies, but now I want to try butterscotch. That sounds yummy! Great hub! Voting up and pinning so that I can make them this week.

I am not vain by any standard, I just like for people to see whose article they are reading, and have an easy way to check out my page once they are on the bottom of my screen.

      Kathryn, you are a baking wizard! These look absolutely yummy! From a writer's perspective, I absolutely love and appreciate your wonderful presentation. It's important to me that there be enough photos to accompany a recipe, and you painstakingly took shots of each significant stage of the preparation. It is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery; in that spirit, I am seriously considering emulating what you do at the end where you have a lovely picture (something I definitely can't match but will try) and your HP link. billybuc says that no one can do a better job of promoting our work than we ourselves. He--and you--are absolutely right! Thank you for sharing in more ways than one! Have a great day, Kathryn! You're already off to a wonderful start! Aloha! Joe

      Shining Irish Eyes,

      I'm so happy that this recipe brought back some of your childhood memories. I have many of being in my grandmother's kitchen, as well as my mother's. My mom loved to bake when I was a kid, and we always had snacks around the house because of that. No storebought cookies for us!

      There is something special about homemade cookies, especially when created by someone we love. I also like making things for other people.

      Careermommy, thanks. Listing the alternatives and the different varieties were what took an extra "day" for me to finish, because I wanted to include enough information to show how versatile this recipe can be. I'm so glad you liked it!

      I love chewy cookies! I always make sure I check the cookies early enough so that they're not too browned. A couple of minutes can make a huge difference, and sometimes when they are actually done they still look like they could use another minute or two. Mine come out so chewy and delicious!

      Thanks for reading and commenting on my recipe hub, and have a fantastic day!

      I love oat cookies, too. Sometimes I grind up less and leave more of the whole oats in, for a heartier texture.

      If you try it, I hope you enjoy!
