Awesome Loaded Oatmeal Cookies

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs 
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 cups Quaker old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup dried cranberries such as Craisins
  • 1/2 cup* white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup* semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup* chopped macadamia nuts
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Beat together butter and sugars until creamy (we use our faboo KA mixer)
  3. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well
  4. Add soda, cinnamon and salt, mix well
  5. Add flour, mix well
  6. Slowly stir in oats (turn mixer to low)
  7. Add in cranberries, chips and nuts
  8. Drop by heaping spoonfuls on ungreased cookie sheets (can use parchment)
  9. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or til golden
  10. Cool 1 minute, remove to wire rack
Feel free to play around - we took the Vanishing Oatmeal Cookies recipe from the Quaker box and made it ours. (They say to mix the spices with the flour but we have found that if you just add them first they are very well incorporated.) Use any type of chips you like, vary up the dried fruits and nuts and add coconut if you like it.
