Brown Sugar Oatmeal Jumbles

I am honored to have this post included in the Deck The Blogs feature at

There are Christmas cookies I make because they are traditional. There are cookies I make because I want to try something new. There are cookies I make just for the kids. There are cookies I make just for the adults.

These cookies? These cookies fall into each of the above categories. There’s a little something for everybody to love with these.


Brown Sugar Oatmeal Jumbles

  • 1 c. butter
  • 1 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 2 t. vanilla
  • 1/4 c. milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. cinnamon
  • 3 c. oats
  • 1 c. chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 c. peanut or plain M & M’s

1. Beat butter and brown sugar together until light and fluffy. Add vanilla, milk and eggs and beat until combined.

2. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Slowly add to mixing bowl and beat just until incorporated. By hand, stir in oats, chocolate chips and M & M’s.


3. Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until lightly golden brown.


4. Cool on wire racks and store in airtight containers. Cookies can also be frozen.


Set out a plate of these cookies and watch them disappear before your eyes. Little hands can’t stay away!
