These homestyle Maple Iced Oatmeal Cookies are packed with flavor! The wonderful texture and maple flavor will make them disappear fast!
What’s your favorite cookie? Is it a homemade chocolate chip cookie? Or maybe you love easy no-bake cookies. Or, when you crave a cookie, do you run to the grocery store and pick up a package of Oreos? Or Chips Ahoy? Or how about those Iced Oatmeal Cookies?
Truth comes out when I ask these questions, haha. While a love these Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies, my favorite might just be those store bought iced oatmeal. A few years back I made a homemade version of those classic ice oatmeal cookies.
I was actually planning on making those again last week, until I noticed a little bottle of maple flavoring in my spice cupboard. I knew it would pair perfectly with these oatmeal cookies. I not only added the maple to the cookie dough, but also to the sweet icing on top!
So here’s my next question. Do you like crunchy or chewy cookies? Or do you like puffy cookies with a cake-like texture? For me? I love a good cookie that has a crunch on the exterior with a chewy center!
Today’s Maple Iced Oatmeal Cookies are perfect for those families who have divided tastes, haha. They DO have a crunchy texture on the outside, but a sweet chewy maple center. I think you’re going to love these. The recipe makes about 27-30 cookies and they went FAST at our house. I’ll be making them again very soon!

For the Cookie dough:
- 2 cup quick cook oatmeal
- 1 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp maple flavoring
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 2 cup all-purpose flour
For the icing:
- 2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tsp maple flavoring
- 1/4 cup milk
- In a food processor (or blender), add oatmeal and pulse until partially ground. Don't make into a fine powder. I pulsed mine 6-8 times, for about 1-2 seconds each time. Set aside.
- Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
- In a large mixing bowl, blend together melted butter with sugars. Mix for several minutes until well combined. Add in eggs and maple flavoring. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking soda, baking powder, oats and flour. Mix until thoroughly blended.
- Drop by large scoop (I use a 2 Tbsp scoop) onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake for about 14-16 minutes (I tend to go closer to 16 for a little extra crunch when they cool). Remove from oven and cool on pan 3 minutes, then cool completely on wire rack.
- For the glaze, whisk together the sugar, maple and milk until smooth. Spoon over each cool cookie and allow to harden (about 15 minutes). ENJOY!
