Maple Instant Oatmeal Cookies
Cookies all day! With chewy centers, crispy edges and layers of sweet raisins, why wouldn’t you want these everyday? And, come on, this classic cookie tastes like cinnamon sugar oatmeal, so it’s really like a breakfast food.
If you’ve never tried making cookies with a packet of oatmeal, you’re in for a good time. Half the work is done for you and they taste incredible.
The texture of the cookie is soft and fluffy and the hint of cinnamon and oatmeal ribboned through out really does make these cookies seem like an appropriate breakfast food. If you love chewy and soft cookies try my peanut butter cookies or my Oreo chunk cookies.

Benefits of oat flour
These maple oatmeal cookies use oat flour which is packed with nutritional benefits. Oat flour is made with ground oats and most of the time only contains one ingredient—whole grain oats. You can even make your own oat flour at home with a high-speed blender or purchase store-bought varieties at some grocery stores. I am using Bob’s Red Mill Oat Flour. It is said that oat flour may sustain energy levels, have cardiovascular benefits, lower cholesterol, rich in vitamins and minerals and 1 cup has 15.3 grams of protein.
Ingredients and Substitutes:

Variations and Substitutions
- You can substitute some of your oat flour with whey protein. I like using Bob’s Red Mill unflavored whey protein concentrate. This will add some protein to this sweet treat.
- Use brown sugar, white sugar or sugar substitute. Note, sugar substitute will change the taste and texture of your maple cookies.
- Add your favorite add-ins, such as semi-sweet, dark chocolate chips, walnuts or pecans.
- To make dairy free use coconut oil in place of butter at a 1:1 ratio.
- To make these gluten-free, use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1:1 flour.
How to make these instant oatmeal cookies
Step 1: preheat and prep
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
Step 2: mix wet ingredients
In a medium bowl, add room temperature butter and sugar. With a hand mixer beat the sugar and butter until fully combined. This may take up to 5 minutes until you have a good combination of the two. Be sure there are no chunks of butter left.
Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
Step 3: add the dry ingredients
Then, in the same bowl, add in the oat packets, oat flour, baking soda and salt. Mix with a hand mixer to combine.
Step 4: fold in raisins
Fold in the raisins and any other mix ins you’d like.
Step 4: bake
Using a small cookie scoop, or 1 Tbsp., scoop batter into round 12 cookies and place on the parchment lined cookie sheet. Do not flatten. Bake for 9 minutes. Remove and repeat with remaining batter. This recipe makes 30 cookies.
Step 4: cool and enjoy!
Allow cookies to cool on pan for 5 to 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Enjoy your maple oatmeal cookies.
