mmm...Delicious Cookies

Delicious Cookies
(thanks mom!)

Heat Oven to 375 deg.

Mix Together:
  • 1 Cup butter or margarine
  • 1 Cup brown Sugar (You can use a little less!)
  • 1 Cup white Sugar (You can use a little less here too)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp almond extract (optional)

  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup coconut (optional)
  • 1 cup nuts (optional)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup cereal (rice crispies, muslix or whatever - optional)*
  • 1/2 cup bran or wheat germ (optional)
  • *I usually add 2 extra cups of oats rather than the cereal. I like oats*
Drop onto cookie sheet and bake at 375 deg for approx 12 min (though in my oven they are done in exactly 8 minutes).

I love this recipe simply because it is such a basic recipe and I can throw in a little of this and a little of that. I sort of clean out my pantry leftovers into it. Sometimes I add raisins or sunflower seeds too....and they are soooo yummy! (and you can make them healthy!)


  1. Those look great! Thanks for sharing!

  2. These look delish!! :D Chock full of goodness!

  3. Those look great. I think I like the idea of the oats instead of the cereal. (I add oats to lots of cookies and bread even if they don't call for it.)
