Bulk Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

Just thought I'd pass along this recipe (it's also in the ebook). I love it and use it all the time. It's great because you combine all the ingredients and store it (I put it in the fridge). Then when you want to make cookies, you combine an egg and vanilla with 2 cups of the mix. You can have cookies on the table super fast!

Oatmeal Cookies
To Make Ahead:
Mix in large bowl

  • 1 ½ cup White Sugar

  • 2 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon (optional)

  • 2 cups Shortening

Add & mix

Feel free to let me know if you try them and if you liked them!!!


  1. finally!! I've been wanting this recipe for sooo long!

  2. I actually meant to send you the mix for your birthday and money for eggs and vanilla, but got busy with moving stuff. It would have been cool though :).

  3. I made these today and they were *delicious* in a low-sugar, yummy, natural, sort of way. I'm not crazy about the shortening, but I understand the mix keeps longer that way. Plus, it makes them vegan so they can be shared with dairy-allergic friends. Thanks!

  4. I'm so glad you tried and liked them. It's so nice and simple. If you have any suggestions to switch out the shortening, I'd love them!

    Thanks for letting me know how they were!
