These soft and chewy Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Cookies are loaded with cinnamon flavor, and oh my goodness are they good! You will want to stock up on cinnamon chips just so you can make these all year long.
When I was a kid, the only kind of oatmeal cookies I liked were the ones with chocolate chips in them. But as an adult, I am now open to more varieties of oatmeal cookies, and I actually have fun coming up with different cookie recipes.
If you have never tried baking with cinnamon chips, you are in for a real treat. Sweet, melting morsels of cinnamon-y flavor will bring any baked good to new heights!
Being the chocolate lover that I am, I never thought I’d say this, but I might actually like these cookies better than chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. I know. It surprised me too. But they are so dang yummy.
I’ve made them several times, and my very favorite way to make them is to stir in a cup of Heath butter brickle baking bits.
The buttery toffee and the spicy cinnamon chips create a perfect flavor combination. Simply addicting!
Where to buy cinnamon chips?
I use the Hershey’s cinnamon chips, and they can be hard to find. Look for them on the baking aisle near the chocolate chips. Some stores only carry them seasonally, so when I find them I stock up! Walmart usually carries them.
You can also find them online at Amazon, Walmart, and Target, but they are always overpriced. I only buy them online as a last resort.
HOW TO MAKE DOUBLE CINNAMON OATMEAL COOKIES
- PREP – Soften butter to room temperature. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking pans with silicone liners or spray with non stick cooking spray.
- DOUGH – Cream butter and sugars in a large bowl. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredients, oats, and cinnamon chips.
- FORM COOKIES – Use a scoop to portion the cookie dough, then roll into balls. Place balls on prepared pans about 2 inches apart.
- BAKE – Bake cookies at 375° for 8-9 minutes or until set in the middle and lightly browned around the edges. For bakery style cookies, press cinnamon chips onto the tops of each cookie while it is still hot.
- COOL- Let cookies cool on the baking sheet for 3-5 minutes, then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
HOW TO STORE OATMEAL COOKIES
These cookies will keep at room temperature for up to a week in an airtight container.
You can also freeze them for up to six months. I like to freeze them in freezer ziplock bags, because you can squeeze out the extra air as you remove the cookies. That helps prevent cookies from getting freezer burn.
CINNAMON OATMEAL COOKIES VARIATIONS:
- Stir in a cup of Heath Bits ‘o Brickle Toffee Bits. (My personal favorite!)
- If you love raisins, try adding a cup of black or golden raisins.
- For even more fall flavor, add some nutmeg or cloves with the ground cinnamon.
- For a more deep and rich flavor, use dark brown sugar.
- If you can’t find cinnamon chips, these are also good with butterscotch chips or sea salt caramel baking chips.
