Mookie (Oatmeal Cookies)

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by justmeterri

I have to say, this is the BEST Oatmeal cookie that I have ever made! I found this recipe in a Sunset Magazine years ago. I cannot remember the name of the person who created this recipe, but they will forever have my love! I believe the story was that this person loved muffins and oatmeal cookies, but the muffins were too big and the cookies were too small. I LOVE these cookies...wait, did I say that already? ;-)

Perhaps Chef Lady Valdez didn't use rolled oats or changed the recipe in some it is a very tasty "mookie" that satisfies both hunger and sweet tooth. You can be creative with this recipe as long as you get the basics right.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix butter and brown sugar until thoroughly blended. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Combine oats, flour, salt, and baking powder. Blend oat mixture with butter mixture.
  2. Stir in walnuts, coconut and raisins.*.
  3. Pack cookie dough into an ice cream scoop (4 oz size) or 1/2 cup measuring cup, scrape dough level with rim, and empty onto lightly oiled baking sheets, spacing dough about 3 inches apart.
  4. Bake in 350 oven until cookie edges are golden brown about 20 minutes. Cool cookies on a rack, serve or store airtight for up to 2 days.
  5. *TIPS: I have never added the walnuts, coconut or raisins to this recipe, so I do not know how they will turn out with them. BUT -- They are AWESOME without them!
  6. Also, I have made this using the 1/2 cup measuring cup, and by the teaspoon, I believe they taste waaay better when measuring the dough by 1/2 cup!
