Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Cookies

Looking for a new Christmas cookie recipe?  I made these cookies over the weekend when I needed a quick sweet treat to serve with some ice cream. Although I used my own flour blend in this recipe, they are not at all THM-friendly! I was even surprised to find that I still had some brown sugar left in my cabinet! But I don’t any more!

2 sticks butter, softened

1 c. packed light brown sugar

1/3 c. granulated sugar

2 eggs

1/2 Tbsp. vanilla

1-1/2 c. low-carb flour blend (see link above)

2-1/2 c. old-fashioned oats

1 tsp. baking soda

10 oz. pkg of cinnamon chips

1 c. raisins (optional)

Beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in a mixing bowl until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat well. Combine flour blend and baking soda in a separate bowl. Add to the butter mixture. Stir well and add the oats and cinnamon chips. Stir well. Add raisins if desired.

Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 11-12 minutes. Cool completely on wire rack. Makes about 4 dozen.

*I didn’t have the time to make these drop cookies, so I spread the cookie dough into a medium-sized jelly roll pan and baked for about 15-20 minutes. Let cool slightly and cut into bars.
