These Chunky Lil’ Cookies Make The Yummiest Breakfast EVER

These are the tastiest oatmeal cookies I’ve ever tried, and I have been making these for years.

I got the recipe from a wonderful lady that used to live right next door. She made these for us when my husband and I first moved in, and made us feel so welcome! Sometimes I still make these for friends and family and everyone is always crazy about these. If you’re taking these to a potluck, make sure you bring the recipe with you. They are going to line up and beg for it!



1 cup Domino brown sugar (packed)

1/2 cup Domino white sugar

1 cup Kerrygold butter, softened

2 Eggland’s eggs

2 tsp vanilla

1 1/4 cups Gold Medal all-purpose flour

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 cup chopped pecans or other nuts of your choice

1 cup chocolate chips OR raisins

3 cups quick cooking oats



Preheat oven to 325F.

Cream the brown and white sugar, and butter, until smooth and light in color. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until combined, then add vanilla and stir.

Combine the flour, salt and baking soda. Add to butter-sugar mixture and stir until just blended.

Mix in the remaining ingredients.

Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. You should get approximately 3 1/2 dozen cookies.

Bake for 10-12 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from oven and allow to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.




Quick tip: Serve with cold milk or some hot chocolate.
