Six-Layer Cookie Mix

Recipe by pheebess

My seven year old son and I think these are delicious! It's a great gift-giving idea when you put it all together in the jar. I found that a 26 oz. (spaghetti sauce) jar held about 3/4 of the recipe. For that size jar, adjust the ingredients to make 18 servings. Using a funnel makes this a lot easier and less messy. You can improvise with a piece of aluminum foil or parchment paper rolled into a conical shape. These can be customized if you're giving them to picky eaters or those with allergies- we left nuts out of one jar :).

I received these as a gift from a student. They were like soft granola bars; a great healthy cookie. I would not substitute raisins for the cranberries for my tastes, but I'm sure others could. I used a cookie scoop and got nearly 30 cookies and cooked for 14 min at 350 degrees.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Layer in order in a jar: oats, brown sugar, flour mixture, nuts, chocolate chips, and dried cranberries. Seal tightly.
  3. Write or type out these directions and attach to or give with jar: Empty contents; stir. Mix in 1/2 cup softened butter, 1 slightly beaten egg, 1 Tbs. milk, and 1 teaspoons vanilla. Drop dough by teaspoons about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes. Makes 24 cookies.
  4. *Note: If you do change this to 18 servings in order to fit in a 26 oz. jar, you may continue to use 1 egg without any ill-effects. It would be rather difficult to use 3/4 of an egg.
