25 Days of Christmas in Cookies

Day 13: Cinnamony Maple Oatmeal Cookies
      Recipe from Hot Polka Dot

    Am I the only one who justifies the eating of Oatmeal Raisin Cookies by saying that since it has oatmeal and raisins it is a pretty healthy cookie? Yes I realize that "healthy cookie" is probably an oxymoron like "swiss cheese" (haha only NewsRadio fans will get that joke) but c'mon, oatmeal is good for heart health and raisins are good for you too! Anyway, I actually still had about a cup left of the cinnamon chips my mother-in-law brought back for me and I thought it would be a perfect use for them. The cinnamon makes completes the cookie and the hint of maple makes the cookies irresistible! 

       makes about 31 cookies
     1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
     1 tsp baking soda
     1 tsp ground cinnamon
     1/2 tsp salt
     1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
     1/2 cup granulated sugar
     1/2 cup maple syrup
     1 egg
     2 cup old-fashioned oats
     1 cup cinnamon chips

  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.

  In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter until creamy. Beat in the sugar and blend well. 

Then beat in the maple 
syrup and the egg.

 Beat in as much of the flour as possible and stir in any remaining flour mixture. Stir until well combined.

  Stir in the oats and cinnamon chips

 to form a stiff dough.

  Drop by the rounded tablespoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.

  Bake at 350 degrees F for about 10 minutes; until the edges are a light golden brown. Transfer to a cooling rack. Enjoy!

  1. I justify oatmeal cookies too :) after all oatmeal is good for you. These sound yummy, but where do you get cinnamon chips?
