Maple Oatmeal Cookies


I woke up last Sunday morning with an urge to bake, but had no interest in going to the grocery store. I needed to make something with the limited ingredients I already had, and since it was Sunday I decided to start with maple syrup and go from there. See the connection? Sunday is the day for maple syrup.

These cookies are more like a muffin-cookie, a mookie, if you will. They are very moist, fluffy, and soft. They are fantastic for breakfast, and a good alternative if you are in the mood for a ‘lighter’ cookie.


3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cream the butter and sugars in a standing mixer. Add the egg, maple syrup, and vanilla. Slowly add in the oats, flour, soda and salt. Mix until combined.
Bake on a greased baking sheet at 350, about 10-12 minutes. Enjoy with a cup of coffee!
