April 30 is National Oatmeal Cookie Day, so here are ten of my best oatmeal cookie recipes. It's not a complete list, but it's a good start. The list includes mostly "basic" type oatmeal cookies plus a few oatmeal chocolate chip cookies such as the Rocky Mountains. I'm leaving out Monster Cookies because even though they are oatmeal, they're really peanut butter cookies. I'm also leaving off bars. Here's the list!
Oatmeal Cranberry Crunch Cookies
Originally from a blog called Oatmeal Cookie Guy, this is an interesting recipe. Graham cracker crumbs stand in for some of the flour and oats giving the cookies a little extra crunch. -- Oatmeal Cranberry Crunch Cookies
Thin and Chewy Oatmeal Cookies
The name says is all. Or maybe not. They should be called Thin, Chewy and Sweet Oatmeal Cookies. This is one of the most popular oatmeal cookies on Cookie Madness. -- Thin Chewy Oatmeal Cookies
Rocky Mountain Oatmeal Chip Cookies
A classic originating from The Silver Palate, the Rocky Mountain Oatmeal Chip Cookies are thick and stuffed with nuts and chocolate. They also work well with gluten-free flour.
Laura Bush's Cowboy Cookies
Another top favorite with chocolate chips. The little bit of cinnamon is what makes these cookies special.-- Laura Bush's Cowboy Cookies
Oatmeal Praline Cookies
The browned butter and the praline glaze both make these cookies special. I don't make them often enough! Oatmeal Praline Cookies for National Oatmeal Cookie Day.
Small Batch Oatmeal Cookies
One of my older recipes, but very reliable and makes "just enough". I should make a batch of these today. Small Batch Oatmeal Cookies
Neiman Marcus Oatmeal Cookies
Everyone knows about the urban legend Neiman Marcus cookies, but here's an oatmeal cookie from a Neiman Marcus cookbook. Neiman Marcus Oatmeal Cookies
Thomas Keller's Oatmeal Cookies
I put some Harvest Grains in my last batch and called them Harvest Grains Oatmeal Cookies, but the original recipe is Thomas Keller's. This makes big, bakery style cookies. -- Thomas Keller's Oatmeal Cookies
Starbucks Copycat Oatmeal Cookies
You can't have National Oatmeal Cookie Day without a Starbucks clone. Starbucks Oatmeal Cookie Clone also known as Outrageous Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies.
Martha Bakes Kitchen Sink Cookies
This is one of my favorite Kitchen Sink Cookie recipes. I wouldn't call them "basic" oatmeal cookies at all, but they'd still be great for National Oatmeal Cookie Day. Martha Bakes Kitchen Sink Cookies.
If that's not enough, here's last year's list.
