Cinnamon Oat Crunch Cookies



Before I leave for San Francisco, I'd like to share a quick post. With generosity from Kellogg's, I've received 2 different flavors of their new products which some of you might have received as well. I used the first flavor to create a crust for the baked chicken dish with pomegranate reduction and couscous. To not disappoint Kellogg and FoodBuzz, this time I will work on the cinnamon oat crunch flavor I have left. The cinnamon flavor brings out great flavor with a crunch from the cereal. It's a perfect sweetness and is also high in fiber and antioxidants!

Since I have raisins left from the couscous recipe, I'm going to incorporate them into the cookies. I found this perfect recipe from Brown Eyed Baker. It's easy and requires everything I have in the pantry. I substituted oatmeal with cinnamon oat crunch. They turned out perfectly, smell incredible, and taste? Oh so good! Time to get hands on! These cookies are crunchy. If you prefer gooey and soft cookies, this might not be a perfect recipe for you.

The original recipe was from Annie's Eat while Michelle adapted to hers, and I adapted to mine.

On another note, next week I have something special to share with you all. Please come back and check to see what I have to offer!


Cinnamon Oat Crunch Cookies
Yield: 4 dozen


1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar ( I substituted raw sugar)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups A.P flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon (omitted because the oat crunch has cinnamon flavor)
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (omitted)
3 cups old-fashioned oats (I substituted cinnamon oat crunch from Kellogg's)
1 cup raisins
1 cup walnuts (I substituted semi-sweet chocolate chips)


  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • Beat butter, sugars, eggs (one at a time), and vanilla extract until well blended. In a separate bowl, sift flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg (if using). 
  • Add dry ingredients to butter mixture gradually. Beat at low speed until combined.
  • Fold in oat crunch, raisins, and chocolate chips.
  • Use a cookie scoop to drop on a prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 8-10 mins or until edges are lightly browned. Let cool for 2 mins and remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Keep in an air-tight container or package them for your lovely friends!

Creative cookie recipe. Pics look great as well. I am not a big sweets eater but I do love my cookies. I could certainly have a few of these, maybe a dozen.

Have a great trip.

Foodessa said...

Tanantha...I, too often use cereal from my pantry and then adjust accordingly. Who says were not versatile bakers ;o)

Those cookies are just waiting for me to put the espresso on ;o)

Thanks for sharing this recipe...I may even try my GF magic on it. LOL

Ciao for now,

Hey Tanantha,

These cookies look and sound wonderful. I know my kiddies would love these cookies as they love cookies with raisins in them. I've never had that cereal before, and I do enjoy cinnamon. I'll have to look for those.
How can you keep us waiting for a week. You're such a tease (smile), but it IS working. Now I can't wait to hear what you've got to share with us. Have a great time in SF!

Mo said...

How cool! I've never baked with cereal... ever. :P But these seem lovely! The name alone is reason enough to drool. ;)

I prefer chewy cookies, but these sounds so tasty I just may have to try them anyway!

A Healthy Purpose said...

ah! I love opening up a website with immediate food porn! These cookies look great :) as does the sandwich underneath.

Le said...

i've cooked here.....instant noodles! Hahah no but I have, nothing fancy like eggs, fried rice and some filipino food but I can't do much seeing as ingredients are sooooooooo expensive here and I have no oven :(

deana@lostpastremembered said...

Amazing cookies and so very smart of you to re-purpose breakfast cereal... I am so in the mood for cookies!!!

lequan@luvtoeat said...

hey Tanantha,

hope you don't mind me commenting on this post cause I'm Canadian and cannot enter in your giveaway but do not want to mess up your results.

first of all, happy belated anniversary! i hope you guys had a fabulous time on your vacation. that was awesome that you decided to stay in and cook a meal together. my hubby is not comfy in the kitchen either, but at least they try right? ;-)

your salmon dish looks scrumptious. i love cooking with salmon and am always looking for different ways to cook it. this is definitely a healthy and wonderful dish.

with 2 little mouths to feed, we try to go organic as much as we can, but sometimes it does get pricey and we do have to make adjustments or substitutions. we always try to put the best and cleanest products into those two little extra mouths ;-). we also try to recycle and reuse as much as we can as well.

lequan said...

congrats on your iced tea win! it really was a great and creative recipe!

Judy said...

Mmmm, I love cinnamon and oats! These look like they are baked to perfection! I need to get back onto all of my fave blogs (like yours)... I've been missing out!!!

Sharmilee! :) said...

Looks soo crunchy...perfectly baked cookies...Wonderful clicks

Patrick @ Appetite for Good said...

these cookies look AMAZING. Im craving some cookies right now!

I lost a bet with Sherry and I have to make her some nutella oatmeal raisin cookies :( from scratch! Do you have any suggestions? or advice? :)

Tanantha P. said...

Patrick, you could add 1 cup on nutella in this recipe. The cookies will be gooey than crunchy. Another way is to spread nutella on a cookie and make it a sandwich -double or open-face sprinkled with nuts.
