Oatmeal Raisin Cinnamon Chip Cookies
I stumbled upon cinnamon chips at the commissary years ago and made the recipe on the back of the bag. These things were AMAZING. Everywhere I went, people asked me for the recipe. Then one day I couldn’t find them anymore. I searched everywhere, every store, all the time for them (I will admit that I still look for them in the baking aisle.) When we moved to Kentucky, we found Meijer stores and — they carry them! So, good luck finding them. I DO intend to play around with making my own cinnamon chips, so look for that sometime in the near future. I have since adjusted the recipe on the back – and they’re even better than they were before (which seems not only improbable, but impossible.)
½ cup butter
½ cup coconut oil
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1½ tsp vanilla extract
1½ cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2½ quick cooking oats (don’t used old fashioned – the cookies will be terribly chewy)
1⅔ cup cinnamon chips (10-ounce package of Hershey’s brand)
¾ cup raisins
cookie scoop or spoon
Preheat oven to 350° degrees F
Cream butter, oil, and eggs. Add sugars and vanilla. Cream together.
Add the oatmeal, flour, soda, and salt. Stir until well mixed.
Add the chips and the raisins.
Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet.
Bake 12-15 minutes at 350° degrees F, or until browned.
Transfer to cooling racks to cool.
4 dozen cookies

BEST … COOKIE … EVER!!!
Where do you buy coconut oil? I have to admit I have never looked for it, but as far as I can recall I haven’t seen it in the grocery store…
Sometimes I can find it in the oil section of the grocery store – sometimes I have to go to the organics section. It just depends on the store. If your grocery store doesn’t have it (which it should) I know Whole Foods and Fresh Market carry it. It’s in a glass jar – like a mason jar – not a bucket or a pourable container. It’s a solid oil.
I’ve seen these cinnamon chips for years, just never had an inkling to buy them until you *insisted*, lol! These cookies are, in fact, amazing!! I left out the raisins (personal preference). I did bake them probably a minute too long (I set the timer for 10 minutes & made the mistake of going downstairs…Paige was supposed to tell me when it went off, but she didn’t! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!) They are still great, just a tad crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle. Luckily I only baked 1/3 of the cookies–I split the rest of the batter into two containers for the freezer to make at a later date.
Once again, Hallee, you have impressed!
Joanne – that is so awesome. Thank you for telling me that -I’m SO glad that they were a hit for you!!
Excellent! I love that they have whole wheat flour. I am always so afraid to try using whole wheat instead of unbleached white. These turned out great! Keep the recipes comin’…!
That’s so awesome that you were able to find the chips! Did you find the coconut oil, too?
I shouldn’t even say this cause he will probably start hiding them now….but im honest….everytime Gregg left the room….i ate another cookie :-/ …and eventhough i eat everybodys food in this office…i’ve never felt more like a fiend until i was breaking into the plastic containers everytime Gregg got up and left….i had to ask myself what have i become….i was literally a cookie monster…but they’re just awesome…you should mass produce them….those cookies could single handedly win the war on terrorism….i personally think i deserve my own batch. I will write a dissertation on it if need be….or i will hold Gregg for ransom…The End :)
okay I am now on a mission to find cinnamon chips… hopefully it won’t be too hard… cinnamon is my fave flavor!
Walmart even has some (around these parts) and as with any oils, the cold pressed, virgin is the bast. There is a brand called Nutiva that has a mild flavor (as I don’t like coconut much). There is also a brand called Wilderness Family Naturals that is good which you can check out too. http://www.wildernessfamilynaturals.com/
Nutiva is also sold on Amazon.com and the price is quite good. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001E5E1MI/ref=oh_o00_s00_i00_details
As is typical with Amazon, the prices change frequently, and I just got a refresher batch a week ago for $25, which one of these 29 oz jars at Walmart costs me $21, which is very cheap compared to other places for this same brand. Also, as Hallee said, this will be in solid form. In the summer, if you live in a warm climate, do not be surprised if it becomes a liquid. But don’t worry, it can melt and re-solidify without oxidizing or causing the shelf life to diminish (2-3 years if kept in a cool-ish, dark place. i.e. not above the stove burners).
Good luck. Also, sometimes when I do baked goods, I will mix 1/2 coconut oil and 1/2 butter which can occasionally taste better.
