Cinnamon Maple Oatmeal Bars

Someone once said that I had too many cookie recipes… is that even possible!? Who could have too many cookie recipes!? I may need to change the type of person I associate with… Ha!

These aren’t really a “cookie” by definition, but a “bar”. They are a spin on my “Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies” – but with cinnamon added, maple syrup added, chocolate chips left out – and the dough is pressed and baked in a pan instead of divided into cookie dough balls and baked. Simple, right?

These are chewy, flavorful and delicious served warm, or chilled! A friend of mine actually eats these for breakfast on the go… genius idea! 😉

Cinnamon Maple Oatmeal Bars

2 sticks (8 oz. total) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups white all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups oatmeal (quick cooking oats)

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F, and spray a 13×9-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the softened unsalted butter, light brown sugar and white granulated sugar until light and fluffy in texture.

Add in the eggs, one at a time, and then stir in the pure maple syrup and pure vanilla extract.

Next, add the white all-purpose flour, ground cinnamon, baking powder and salt all at once and stir until just combined.

Finally, gently stir in the oatmeal.

Place dough into prepared pan, and smooth out the corners and top.

Bake in preheated oven for exactly 25 minutes.

Allow to cool, then cut into desired pieces and serve.

Enjoy!

  1. You can never have too many cookies recipes and I agree with you Blaise. My mom will love this since she hates chocolate chips. She only likes Hersey Milk Chocolate. Thanks for coming up with cookies w/o chocolate chips. 😊
