These oatmeal cookies are sweetened only with honey (no sugar), which not only lends great flavor to this recipe, but also great texture. These cookies will stay moist for several days if stored in an airtight container. I also usually add a piece of white bread to the cookie tin. It helps keep the cookies soft.
These melt-in-your-mouth oatmeal chocolate chip cookies bring together the best of two great classics in one delectable cookie. When I make these for parties or bake sales, they disappear in an instant.
A brownie mix is the base for these soft and tender oatmeal cookies. Chocolate chips are added for extra sweetness and chocolate flavor. Chocolate and oatmeal make a wonderful pair!
The texture of these oatmeal raisin cookies will remind you why you love oatmeal cookies in the first place (in case you forgot). Chewy with just the right amount of wholesome nuttiness, these oatmeal raisin cookies are appropriate for any occasion.
If you're a fan of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, and you like cookie bars or brownies, you will adore these oatmeal cookie bars. They taste almost like granola bars. Soft and chewy, these cookie bars are ideal for picnics, holidays and bake sales.
Wedding cookies are typically made with just finely-chopped walnuts, but this recipe also incorporates oatmeal, and it is fantastic. The buttery cookies are a lovely contrast to the hearty oatmeal. I like to make these cookies for Christmas.

Coconut oil is the secret ingredient that makes these oatmeal cookies so soft. Unlike most oils, coconut oil is not a liquid. It's a soft solid, similar to shortening. Look for it in your local health food store or the health food section of your favorite grocery store. I prefer dark chocolate chips for these oatmeal cookies, but use whatever kind of chocolate chips you like.
The unique combination of spices really sets these oatmeal cookies apart from the rest. If you can't find mace, use nutmeg. Mace actually comes from the nutmeg tree, and it has a slightly stronger flavor than nutmeg - sort of like cinnamon and pepper.
