Stir-N-Drop Oatmeal Cookies

Here is another recipe coming out the Betty Crocker Cookie Book. I never made this before now and I am surprised how much I like this cookie. There isn't any butter in this cookie. Usually I miss the butter flavor if it is not in the cookie, but not in this case. These cookies are really good. There is a suggestion that add chocolate chips in the cookies. I will do that next time.

So here is the recipe:

1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 ginger
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup oats
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tbsp milk
1 egg
3/4 cup peanuts ( I did not have any, I left this out)

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Mix dry ingredients together, add sugar and oats, mix in oil, milk, and eggs. Add peanuts. Drop by round teaspoonfuls on greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake 8-10 minutes until done.


  1. Hmmm, these do sound good. I always make the Quaker recipe but love to try new ones too. I'll give it a whirl sometime!

  4. Oatmeal cookies are winners in my book, both with and without chocolate chips and other add-ins. Thank you for participating in Vintage Recipe Thursday. Enjoy your day. :-)

  5. This looks really good! I have a friend who can't have dairy, so since this is butter-free, I should be able to adapt the rest of it to work for her.

  6. That is different. I will for sure try. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Hi there- found you through the hop and am a new follower. I have all the ingredients except for the brown sugar- I'll have to make my own with molasses. The "brown sugar" here is not the same. I hope you have time to follow my life in South Africa by

    I hope you are having a great week!
