Sometimes a simple bake is all you need and these chocolate chip cinnamon oatmeal cookies are certainly not fussy. Just a good classic sweet treat.
I was looking out the window at the unseasonably bad weather we have had recently, thinking of the days when we could hopefully soon crack open a tub of ice cream. One of my favourite ever varieties that Ben & Jerry used to make was Oatmeal Cookie Chunk with all of these cookie flavours (plus a little bit of fudge). It’s discontinued now, so making these cookies was the next best thing.
I used mini semi-sweet chocolate chips in mine, as I had them languishing in the cupboard, plus my usual breakfast porridge oats. I added some cinnamon from a recent haul I got from TK Maxx. It’s from the US – American cinnamon is hotter and spicier than the type you get in the UK. We Brits use Ceylon cinnamon, whereas the Yanks use Saigon cinnamon. They are quite different to each other, I love Saigon needless to say.
The cookies are very simple to mix together, and this recipe makes quite a large batch. I got 12 mahoosive cookies out of these, but I reckon you could stretch to about 30 normal sized cookies if you wanted to go smaller.
They are warm and comforting with a glass of milk, or a cup of tea and really are at their best when fresh from the oven. Here’s how I made them…

I'm entering these classic cookies into this month's Treat Petite hosted by Kat at The Baking Explorer. The theme is GBBO and they had biscuits recently in the show and cookies are American biscuits after all!!
