Iced Oatmeal Cookies....better than the grocery store version!

Do you ever make something and think to yourself, “Oh my gosh this is the best thing I’ve ever eaten.”

The day I made these cookies, that’s how I felt. And the next day too. And on the third day, they were gone, and I cried.

These cookies taste very similar to the iced oatmeal cookies you get at the grocery store. I don’t even know if there is a brand name, it may just be the store brand that I enjoy so much.

But no more. No more will I buy those when I know how to make them at home. And, hellooooo, they are oatmeal. Healthy.

Iced Oatmeal Cookies

Yield: 4 dozen


    For the Cookie:
  • 1 cup butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 2 cup quick oats
  • 2 cup flour
  • For the Icing:
  • 2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  1. In food processor, add oatmeal and pulse until partly ground. Don’t make into a fine powder, leave some chunks. I pulsed mine 6 times, at 1-2 seconds each. Set aside.
  2. In mixing bowl, blend together butter with sugars. Mix 1-2 minutes until combined. Add eggs, one at a time. Mix in remaining cookie ingredients and blend until thoroughly combined.
  3. Drop by several tablespoons onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 14-16 minutes. I like mine a little bit crunchier, so I went closer to 16 minutes. Remove and cool.
  4. To make glaze, whisk together powdered sugar with heavy cream and cinnamon until smooth. Frost each cookie and allow to harden. You can put them in refrigerator to speed up process (about 30 minutes).
  5. Enjoy!

    I loved those cookies growing up but have not had one in years. I have to make these soon. Can’t wait to taste them but not excited for the years when they are gone.

    If that;s the best thing you ever had, they’ve got to be pretty good! YUM!

    Over the weekend I was actually thinking about doing a cookie like this one… An iced oatmeal! These look delicious, and I bet would be even better dipped in milk!!

    Just found you from Six Sisters’ Stuff. Just yesterday I was eating a store bought iced oatmeal cookie and thought – I can make this BETTER. I searched Pinterest but found nothing that looked good. Yours looks so good, I just pinned it!

    Making these this weekend! I have gone through plenty of packages of store brand…these look even better! All they need is a tall glass of milk. Thanks for sharing!

    There is no other (polite) way to put this – these are damn good!!! Now that I’ve made these cookies I have quite the dilemma. They’re supposed to survive and make it to a party tonight at 6:00pm, but I’ll be home alone with these cookies staring at me saying Eat Me.

    Have you ever tried these with the old fashioned oats? Do you think they would still work?

    • posted Sep 28, 2012 at 7:28 pm

      I have not substituted them myself, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. You pulse them in a food processor to break them down anyways, I say go for it!

    I have made these twice now. Once I used whole grain oats, added a cup of raisins, and left off the icing. They were awesome.

    Can I use milk instead of heavy cream for the frosting or will it not set up right?

    Just checking – is it def. 1 TBSP of baking powder? I’m just not used to so much baking powder in a recipe…

      I know, it seems high, but it will be amazing. TRUST ME :)
