Oatmeal Jumble Cookies Recipe

I combined a favorite bar recipe and cookie recipe to come up with these cookies. They stay chewy and keep well.

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

"May not need to bake them the full 10 minutes. Delicious! I love the combination of flavors. Tastes like a homemade granola bar. A nice hardy cookie to ship overseas :)"
