Hi All! Today I got something very delicious to share! It is my Oatmeal Cookie. I love a good oatmeal cookie, as the chewiness from the oats provide different textures to your mouth, the fragrance from the spices and butter will leave you wanting more cookies and you could have oatmeal cookies with milk/coffee/tea, how convenient.

Another thing convenient about oatmeal cookies are the ingredients. They are everyday product, such as flour, sugar, eggs, milk and etc. It is very simple and quite a foolproof cookie to make. It is amazing for family bonding as you could get your partner or your children to help out to whip out some delicious oatmeal cookie. So without further ado, let's get started! 

Oatmeal Cookie


  • 1 cup Salted Butter, Softened
  • 2 cups Packed Dark Brown Sugar (Using dark brown sugar would give the rustic brown carmelised colour in the cookie) 
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 1-1/2 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 3 cups Old Fashioned Oats (Not the instant oats as those would soak up the liquids by the time you are ready to bake your cookies) 
  • 2 teaspoon of cinnamon (Optional as some people might not like the taste and smell of cinnamon) 
  • 1 teaspoon of nutmeg ( (Optional as some people might not like the taste and smell of nutmeg) 



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F (175 C).
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer (or using a hand mixer) beat together the butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, scraping the bowl after each one.
  3. Mix together the flour, salt, and baking soda in a medium sized bowl. Add it into the creamed mixture in 2 to 3 batches, mixing it until just combined. Mix in the oats until just combined.
  4. Use your preferred size cookie scoop (or a regular spoon) to drop portions of dough onto a lightly greased cookie sheet, spacing them a couple inches apart. Bake for 12-13 minutes or until dark and chewy. If you’d like a crispier cookie, just cook a little longer!

I love the hint of cinnamon and nutmeg in the oatmeal cookie and I think it goes very well with milk. This recipe is simple and fast to make. It would make a great tea-time snack for both young and old.
