This is the recipe for how to make simple classic oatmeal cookies. There is nothing more comforting and cozy than a familiar childhood taste of a classic cookie. This recipe is exactly that. Traditional oatmeal cookies are soft and chewy and with really nothing else in them.

They really bring back warm, reminiscent memories that everyone cherished. With a bounty of elaborate cookie recipes around I still stick with this timeless oatmeal cookie recipe. It is perfected, absolutely foolproof and cookies come out great every single time.

Oatmeal takes center stage in the cookies so make sure to pick the right kind. Old fashioned or rolled oats are the best choice. Robust old fashioned oats that’s what gives the cookies it’s chewy, hearty texture and earthy, nutty taste.

The cookies are soft and chewy on the inside and slightly crispy around the edges with just a right amount of sweetness. I do not recommend using quick oats since they soak in too much moisture and are less thick. You do not wanna end up with dry cookies lacking rustic texture. And once you take a bite you can’t stop devouring them.

The cookies are a plain canvas of flavor. You can dress them up with all kids of delicious ingredients like chocolate chips, nuts, toffee, raisins or m&ms. Or just enjoy in their pure, basic form for a wonderful treat.
