Oatmeal Spice Cookies

Now that it's officially fall, I can start all of my fall baking and cooking!

My favorite recipe and my all-time favorite fall treat are my Oatmeal Spice Cookies. These are a popular favorite in my house and amongst my family and friends. I only make them during the fall season.

Not only do they smell amazing when baking, but they taste delicious!!! Did I mention that they have chocolate chunks in them? Between the spices and the chocolate, this cookie is a fall dream and melts in your mouth. I feel that this cookie embraces everything about fall and is a great way to kick off the season.

1 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, firmly packed

1/2 cup granulated sugar

3 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

3 cups quick-cooking oats

1 cup semisweet chocolate chunks

1 cup toffee bits

Prep Work

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° and line a baking sheet (or a couple if you have them) with parchment paper.


  1. In a large bowl, beat the butter and both the sugars (brown and granulated) with a mixer on medium-high speed until fluffy (about 3-4 minutes). Be sure to scrape the side of the bowl while mixing. Once the mixture is fluffy, add the eggs one at a time making sure to mix well after adding each egg. Once you have added the eggs, add in the vanilla.

  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

  3. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, beating until combined.

  4. Add in the oats, chocolate, and toffee, beating just until combined.

  5. Drop dough by heaping chunks at a time about 1 inch apart onto the prepared baking sheets. I always eyeball the heaping chunks. Just be sure not to make them too big or too small otherwise they will not bake properly. About 3 tablespoons full.

  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes (until lightly browned).

  7. Transfer to a cooling rack while you finish baking the entire batch.

  8. ENJOY!!!!! They are fresh for about 3 days, after that they will start to dry up.
