Grandma's Recipes One By One!

Oatmeal Cookies

on April 25, 2014

I’m sure there are a million different recipes for oatmeal cookies, but this recipe is really good!

This recipe looks like it originally came from the newspaper, and you know it had to be good if Grandma kept a recipe from the newspaper and made a note on it.

Note the “Very Good” connotation again here.

Oatmeal Cookies

You could make a lot of different combinations using the suggested additions.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup butter

2 eggs

Pinch of salt

1 3/4 cup all purpose flour

2 1/4 cup oatmeal

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

Combine sugars, butter, and eggs.

Blend well.

Add vanilla.

Sift dry ingredients together and add to sugar mixture.

Add oatmeal and ONE of the following:

1 cup chocolate chips

1 cup coconut

1 cup raisins

1 cup salted peanuts

(I added white chocolate chips.)

Bake at 375 degrees until golden brown (about 14 minutes in my oven).


I have retired my old red ice cream scoop in favor of a brand new shiny one!


The recipe says only ONE addition, but I think you could add a couple of things at a time if you wanted to.


This was the perfect snack for the rainy spring afternoon when I made them.


Warm and chewy at first out of the oven.

Crispy and delicious later when cooled.

These are REALLY good!
