The Best Iced Oatmeal Cookies

Hey everyone! Today I’m excited to be sharing my recipe for The Best Iced Oatmeal Cookies and kicking off something fun for the holiday season – Cara’s Christmas Cookie Countdown. Holiday baking is a long-time family tradition passed down from my Mom, and to me there’s nothing better than baking Christmas cookies with my two sweet boys and making special memories in the process.

With just 6 weeks until Christmas, now is the perfect time to plan out your holiday baking, so starting today and each week leading up to Christmas, I’ll be sharing a delicious cookie recipe that our family loves. Even better, they’re all super easy to recreate with your own family.

Of course, if you end up making any of these, please tag me in your photos on social media, and I can’t wait to hear what you think of all the cookies! šŸ™‚

The Best Iced Oatmeal Cookies

Onto the most important part of today’s post, let’s talk about these iced oatmeal cookies. I’m not kidding when I titled this post THE BEST Iced Oatmeal Cookies – it’s legit. They’re soft, chewy, packed with an incredible flavor combo of cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar, and topped with a sweet glaze of icing that you can’t resist!

Iced Oatmeal Cookies are such a classic in the cookie world and I absolutely love them around the holidays and Christmas. Plus, let’s not deny how pretty these cookies are with the white icing on top. These would make great gifts to share with your family, friends, and neighbors, and are perfect for displaying in a glass cake stand in your kitchen during the holidays.

These iced oatmeal cookies are way better than store-bought kind and are super easy to make with simple ingredients you probably already have in your pantry and fridge. This recipe does require a food processor or blender for the old fashioned oats, but it’s totally worth it to achieve that delicious, soft, chewy texture with the oats.

I absolutely love this awesome blender that I purchased earlier this year and it’s great for smoothies, soups, salsa, and milk shakes. The key with the oats here is you don’t want to blend them until they are a flour consistency, but instead just lightly pulse them 5-8 times to barely break up the oats.

To top these cookies off right, they’re dipped in a delicious, sweet icing that perfectly balances out the flavors of the oatmeal, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pair these cookies with a tall glass of milk and enjoy!

Looking for the best iced oatmeal cookies recipe? Look no further! These iced oatmeal cookies are soft, chewy, and absolutely delicious!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup 2 sticks butter (softened)
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Icing

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 23 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp light corn syrup (optional*)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Combine softened butter, sugar, and brown sugar, and stir until well-combined.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla extract and stir well. Set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  5. Gradually add dry ingredients into wet until completely combined.
  6. Add 2 cups of old fashioned oats to a food processor and pulse 5-8 times.*
  7. Stir your oats into your cookie dough until well incorporated.
  8. Scoop dough onto parchment paper lined baking sheet using a small or medium sized cookie dough scoop to form a smooth round ball. Gently press down the tops of each cookie with the bottom of a glass before baking.
  9. Bake in oven for 12-14 minutes, or until bottoms are lightly golden.
  10. Allow cookies to cool completely on a cooling rack before covering with icing.

Icing

  1. Combine powdered sugar, milk, and corn syrup in a small bowl. Whisk until well-combined. If icing is too thick, add more milk as needed until you reach a drizzle consistency.
  2. Carefully dip the tops of each cookie into the icing and let excess drip down before turning over and placing the iced side up on a cooling rack. I recommend putting a baking sheet or piece of parchment paper underneath to catch any drips.
  3. Allow to sit at room temperature for at least an hour or two before transferring to an air tight container for storage.

Notes

*Light corn syrup will create a more shiny glaze, but can be omitted if desired.

*Avoid over-pulsing the oats and only pulse 5-8 times to barely break them up. The oats are what create the soft, chewy texture that’s so delicious.

      Hi Barbara, So glad to hear your grandson loves iced oatmeal cookies too! Both of the ingredient list and directions state to use 2 cups of old-fashioned rolled oats (which you will pulse in a food processor). You also use 2 cups of all-purpose flour. Hope that helps clarify, but please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you all love them!

    By far the best oatmeal cookie I’ve ever eaten! The oatmeal cookie alone is amazing but the icing adds the perfect extra sweetness. Make these and you won’t be disappointed!
